well, as of lately my father has been noticing a drastic change in me, he described me as a "trainwreck." this doesnt bother me, i dont care what he thinks about me, so he can say it all he wants. but the thing i do care about is that my best friend, my only one, is telling me i need help BAD. she tells me shes been through it before, that shes delt with S.H.ers 5 times before, and that im heading in the same direction most of them were, which is a breakdown. i dont think this, i think i have it under control. but i admit, as of lately my suicidal thoughts have been drastically on the rise, and so has my cutting/burning/ other methods i wont go into. maybe i do need help? my dad told me either shape up or ship out, and honestly id rather ship out than tell him everything thats going on with me. if i dont get help i know im going to lose my best friend, which i definatly dont want to do. so my question is, whats the best way to approach my dad asking for psychiatric help?
