Athena Posted November 19, 2010 Report Share Posted November 19, 2010 I cut myself last Tuesday where I thought it would never be seen. Unfortunately both my daughters (5 and 9) saw the marks over the past week when I was changing ( I had totally forgot about it). My 9 year old came right out and said to me today, " I know what you did, you cut yourself, and don't lie to me.". She's only ever seen it once before, back in July and that was enough incentive for me to stop cold turkey - until recently. Frankly, she floored me. Once I regained my composure, I told them "I have a problem, and i'm getting help for it and seeing a doctor 4x a week to help me stop and that it doesn't mean I'm trying to kill myself". But I don't know if that's good enough. I fear this will come back to haunt me when they are teenagers. Any suggestions? Allan, I'd particularly like to hear from you.
