“He’s a friend. We met via the internet. He’s seen my ups and downs on Facebook and I want our friendship to be completely open. To save us both being uncomfortable about my scars I sent him a long message explaining them. He has been great. I can now tell him anything, the good, the bad & the ugly. He knows more about how I feel right now than my therapist does.
“If you’re thinking of telling someone, I would encourage you to do it. The result might not always be positive but it’s worth the risk. I feel like a huge weight has lifted.”
