So I deal with (what I have recently come to terms with) an ED and I also struggle with self harm. I know that it would be in my best interest to go see a therapist about this and my parents and I are trying to find one, but my parents just think I want to go to one because of my anxiety. They have no idea that I struggle with an ED or self harm. They know that I used to self harm and sent me to a psychiatrist but she was a real bitch and I would leave there feeling worse than when I came in so they let me quite seeing her but they were also under the impression that I had stopped self harming and I had, for about 10 months and then I ‘relapsed’ (is that the correct term?). So back on topic, if I went to a therapist and I decided to tell them about my ED and self harm would the therapist have to tell my parents? I really don’t want to disappoint them. Plus if they find out then my mom will tell the WHOLE family (which I really can’t handle). So would whole doctor/patient confidentiality still be in play if I told the therapist about the ED and self harm???
