    Just curious if anyone else self harms using pills? Like pain killers etc. I usually just take a few in one go, then mow through a whole pack :laugh:.

    For me it's a way I can do it without anyone seeing anything on the outside. The unfortunality(that even a word?) being that I'll probly have liver damage fairly quickly :l

    I used to. Its incredibly dangerous though, and I urge you to let the doctors know and get the necessary tests on your organs. Do you have any mental health support at all?

    I have none what so ever. Besides SF :laugh:. But by the end of the year I'll probly get help, I don't really know how I'll do it though.

    I'm sorry you're struggling with this alone. Its great you intend to get support. Is there a particular reason you intend to at the end of the year?

    Well in the next 2 years I have to do fairly well(pass) in my classes to get an OP/Cert etc etc. And because of my anxiety and depression, there's a chance I'd end up fucking a subject up and just wasting my time.

    That and I don't feel to comfortable doing it at this point in time. Maybe at the end of the year I'd be more up to it? I just don't know how I'd get help. Like how do I do it? :unsure:

    That's fair enough. You have to seek help when the time feels right. It might be worth seeking help before you 'end up fucking a subject up', so almost as a pre-emptive move.

    Well, a good start would be seeking a doctor and telling them of your difficulties. They can then refer you on to see someone else who should be more specialised (such as maybe a psychiatrist, or a psychologist or therapist, etc).

    Yea, I'd have to end up telling mum, so she could talk to the doctor etc. Haven't been there in years :laugh:.

    I think I'd tell mum sometime on a holiday we're taking at the end of the year(going for 2 weeks). I tend to be 'left' with mum so it'd be easier to tell her without all the kids around and what not. I'm just wondering how I'd break it to her, I've never spoken to her about any of my problems before. I don't speak to her an awful lot about anything, I'm fairly reserved.

    I don't know how she'd take it, but a year or so ago I did have an incident where she found out I was cutting on my wrist. She pretty much broke into tears and said I could talk to her about these things. She ended up asking me all these questions about what was the problem etc. We 'settled' for that school was not challenging enough or something, I can't really remember. Truth be told, nothing has changed since then. If anything it's probly gotten worse.
