Hello - my first post here - trying to find support online as my 13!yr old has now self harmed 4 or 5 times In 5 months. I am heart broken, scared ( that she will ha e scars that will impact job chances how people perceive her etc), and just feel sick about it. The last three tones have bee closer together - escalating? Each time she told me until this tile when I guessed due to some Evidence. She reluctantly confirmed. Says she has bad thoughts about herself amd then does this. She has adhd and anxiety and trauma impacts due to medical treatment when young. Struggles with friendships/ social Stuff. She is starting to see counselor. But early days. I ha e seem someone for help briefly but not sure is right person. How do you cope with your own feelings - I am single parent and little family and just feel like I want to crawl in a hole and cover it up. This is never what I imagined having to deal with/ where we would be. I know one day at a time But I can barely breathe right now myself. How do you manage yourselves through this?
