I hope to take you on my journey of the slow and steady repair of my darling daughter who uses self harming to control emotions. Self Harming is the bulimia of the 21st century, it is wide spread, but affects male and female teenagers.
When we first found out that our daughter was self harming the questions that were raised were overwhelming. Where did we go wrong, what can we do, does she want to kill herself, WHAT DO WE DO!
As we journey through this darkness, we hope to hear from other parents who teenagers also self harm.
All the academics tells us “Dont blame yourselves”…….but to this day, I know I messed up somewhere along the line.
