I never did cut- but I scrached- expecially
opening old wounds so they never did really heal. That was when I was 11 or 12. I still have to keep myself from
opening scabbs when I get stressed.
My daughter is 12 and she has reciently (this past week) admitted to doing things like repeatadly poking herself with a rose thorn in her pocket, or scraching herself on the arm with the edge of her jump drive, or using a sewing needle to poke herself. It is terrifying to me that she has started.
I never got to where I was truly making cuts- and I don't want her there either. Her appt with a PSY is monday and I don't know what to do with her until then. How do I stop something that is so concealed?
I hoped never to have to deal with this, even though both me and my husband are BP. It's scarier to deal with my daughter's illness than it is to deal with my own.
