I'm seeing a counselor for the first time at the end of this week. The problem is that I don't know what to say. I know he will ask most of the questions but I'm not sure how open I should be. I know if I don't tell him enough, he can't help me. I'm sure he'll ask what brought me to see a counselor. The truth is, as stated in a previous post, was my plan to commit suicide. It's not that it failed, I just didn't follow all the way through. I also cut. I just don't know how much I should say or how to explain anything. I want to hurry up and get better so maybe I should just lay it all out on the table so he knows and can go from there. I'm not sure what he'll do if he finds out I cut or that I almost killed myself. I don't know anyone who has seen someone, so I can't ask them for advice. I know not everyone here likes their therapist, maybe some do. Maybe someone has enough experience to point me in the right direction. Any advice would be really appreciated. Thank you.
