    I think telling a mental health professional is a courageous step. And an important one too. No professional should (in theory) think you're stupid or anything like that. It's their job to help u with your issues, though there are some that do not rly understand their purpose (but i'd say tht's pretty rare). Aaanyway, i think if u feel the need to talk to a professional, don't be scared, if u let them help you, they will. And if it so happens that the first professional u see isnt working for ya, there are always others.

    I myself have seen 3 professionals, a psychiatrist and 2 different psychologists. In my case for example the psychiatrist helped me a lot, mentally too (meaning talking), while the psychologists didnt rly understand me, and i stopped seeing them. So, by trying u can understand what type of therapy works for ya.

    Hope it goes well^^, and u can ask for advice from me if u feel the need for it.

    I too am a cutter and recently got out of a mental institution here in NC. It won't be easy to tell your counseller that you think you should go into a mental hospital, but if you feel like your losing control of the rushing thoughts then I urge you to tell your counseller. I think they will appreciate the honesty more than think your stupid for asking for help. If you need someone to talk to that has gone and is currently going through these same issues please do not hesitate to messege me. I will leave my yahoo messenger address if you ever need someone to vent to or I can tell you my story and we can lean on each other for support. My address is if you want to talk I'm on alot of the time. I hope you talk to someone before making any rash decisions as I've done in the past. *hug

    I am also a cutter and I've thought about getting admitted to a hospital too. My friend and I agreed that she is going to call the mental hospital tomorrow and make an appointment to the psychiatrist for me. I'm not sure if I want to go there though. I know I have a problem and I need help but I really don't want to stop. I'm afraid that I'm not gonna make it there because I will freak out or something.

    I don't have my personal counsellor so I think I have to make an appointment to one of the psychiatrists in the hospital. I dthink you should talk to your counsellor about that.
