How to fake recovery in self harm?

How to fake recovery in self harm? Topic: how to write a journal report
June 26, 2019 / By Lawrence
Question: My life in 5 sentences: When I was 14-one year ago- my father was arrested for child abuse (sexual/physical/emotional) and I was sent to live with my aunt since my mother is dead. About 10 or 11 months ago I began cutting myself and I love it, but this Friday my PE teacher saw my cuts on my arms/legs and sent me to the school pyschologist office. We talked all day, and then she called my aunt (she asked me if I was okay with calling, but I declined). My aunt HATES self harmers/Eating disorders/Mentally "unhealthy" people because she thinks they are attention W_H_O_R_E_S. Current situation: The school pyschologist suspects I have; borderline personality disorder (which comes with amjor depressive disorder), PTSD, Bipolar disorder, and obviously emotional issues, but she advises my aunt to take me to see a proffesional outside of school. But ever since friday my aunt has been calling me names like w-h-o-r-e, s-l-u-t, attention seeker and things like that. She says she won't take me to a pyschologist and that I just have to stop faking. But in two weeks I have a 'check-in' session with the school physchologist to see how my progress is doing. But you see, I don't want to stop cutting as this is the only way I can deal with this. So no, I'm not stopping and listening to the stupid school pyschologist. I am going to continue but I need her to think that I've stopped. How can I do this?? Please help me-and don't tell me to stop cutting because I don't think I can. Also I can't report my aunt as I don't want me and my brother to go into the legal system. I don't have any other relatives and I will NOT put my brother through that. Alright? So that is not an option (more for my little brother than me-ever since my mom died I've had to be the parental figure for him-I'm 15 and he's 8) AND PLEASE NO PITY! IT MAKES ME SICK! I do not like attention/pity/sympathy. So please skip the "Im sorry's" because this is just the cold hard truth and a lot of people have it worse of than me.

Well.. im going to start off by saying that you CAN stop cutting, but you need to have a reason to. No stranger on a question and answer site will convince you either way, youd have to want to. Since you dont, Ill answer your question. Dont cut for a little bit so that when you go to your check ins, you dont have fresh wounds. Keep a journal (you can make things up if you dont want to share the truth) and write out your feelings and day to day things. Tell the school psychiatrist that youre using the journal as a new emotional outlit and it helps. Even let him/her look at it if they want to. They should approve of that. If you feel you absolutely must cut before the check in, dont do it on your wrist or anywhere they'll see. Good luck. I hope you find a reason eventually.

There are two options I can think of. 1. You need to stop cutting yourself. I don't care how much you like it. If you stop, your aunt will probably stop calling you names. Also, think of your brother. What will he think if he sees you doing this? Will he start doing it too? 2. You can have a talk with your aunt and tell her why you are doing it, and maybe she will send you too a psychologist. If she isn't the "talkative an friendly" type, see option one. You will get through this, okay? I hope that wasn't just a pity statement, but I don't care. I think what you need to worry about most is your little brother and what he will think if he knows you are cutting yourself. He might start. Look out for your brother, and I wish you the best Of luck.

I downright respect your wish against pity. I have no idea how to put this, so im going to tell you what i would do. I would keep cutting, i agree that it is amazing. I would put up with your aunt for these last few years until you are 18. Who cares what she thinks? You dont do it for attention and you know it so that shouldnt bother you. I would continue to protect your brother and i was say f**k off to your guidance counselor at school. When you are 18, you can finally have a life for yourself which, by the sound of it, you have never had. Alot of people do have it worse than you; dont let that negate your own situation. Good luck, and take care

just tell ur aunt u fell or an animal scratched u if u have a pet...but honestly cutting is not a good solution to ur problems..u r a role model for your younger brother and u don't want him thinking that cutting is a solution to problems. I can't say much since i am to a cutter but try to do something else like keep a journal or punch a pillow and pretend it's ur aunt. i can feel the pain ur going through although i haven't dealt with that but please if possible find another way to get ur anger out that is healthier, b/c trust me u don't wanna end up with a bunch of scars down ur arms and legs like me...it's awful and i hide the fact that i even have the scars b/c ppl think i'm ugly b/c of it. it's never to late to change ur life.

I suspect the file itself is gone, but it's still showing up in your recent document list. Have you tried opening it from the list? If you do, I expect you'll get a "File not found" message or something similar. In any case, there's no way to delete selected files from the list (I wish there were), but you can clear the list completely very simply: 1.Click the round Office button in the upper left corner. 2.Click the Word Options button. 3.Click Advanced. 4.Down under Display, set the number of Show This Number of Recent Documents to zero. 5.Click OK. If you want to show recent documents again, go back and set the number to something other than zero. The old ones will be gone. Hope that helps.
