I have a question. If you have told somebody about the fact that you SI, how did you tell them? Who did you tell? When did you tell them? How much did it help you? Do you have any advice on who/when/how to tell someone? How does it help?
I ask because telling someone, to me, seems like an incredible impossibility. I suppose part of it is that I am unwilling to admit that I
might have a problem. I don’t want people to think I’m just looking for attention or that I’m being dramatic. And I want to make sure opening up helps more than it hurts, because I don’t want to burden anyone.
Any experiences you have, I’d love to hear about. Talking helps me a lot. 🙂 Thanks so much. Please email if you would rather contact me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
