I can't believe how quickly everything has gone downhill right now.

I've been referred to a plastic surgeon for an injury related to self-harm. It's from a while ago, January.

It was actually an accident but needless to say if I hadn't been playing with blades it wouldn't have happened.

I feel so stupid. I never told my parents about the injury so now i'm unsure what to do. I've told everyone else I cut it while drunk and cooking and I could use that but whether my mum would see through it...

I guess she couldn't prove anything.

So yeah, basically I have no feeling or movement in my thumb right now even though the injury is totally healed. I had it glued together at the time ad it seems I may have to have surgery.

God I hate myself.

It's when I drink I'm not very good at not hurting myself. The rest of the time I'm good at it :/ so I need to stop drinking really.

I no longer live with my parents and haven't for almost 3 years. I live in a different city and I've been back to them for one weekend since January. Basically my point is I'm largely independent of them and even when I lived with them, my mum never coped well with my mental health issues. She had a breakdown herself needing time off work, antidepressants etc. I'm also scared there would be pressure for me to move back in with them. In the long run these are all things that'll make things worse. I've even had therapists agree with me telling them is not the right thing. It's not as simple as tell them.
