Self harming possible trigger warning

I have recently started picking at scabs and punching myself in the head when I am mad or upset.I feel immense guilt if I hurt someone else even by accident but I don’t when I hurt myself.

My partner told me not to tell my intake therapist this because she knows the inpatient unit associated with the clinic is terrible.

How does she know it’s terrible? Personal experiences can vary greatly, so just because she or someone she knows had a bad experience, doesn’t mean it’ll be the same for you.

I definitely think you should tell your therapist. They can’t help you properly if they don’t know what you’re dealing with.


She knows its terrible because I’ve been there before around 4 years ago. I lied to get out. I barely slept because the invega they put me on didn’t help.

Don’t lie about self harm. You need to get help.
