How do I tell others and get help for my self harm when someone else has just been found out?

I self harm, but no one knows at the moment, and I've been working up the courage for ages to tell my friends and get them to understand so I can find help. But now someone else's self harm has just been discovered and made them popular for some reason? I'm worried that if I reveal my secret to people now they will think I copied that other person so I too could be popular.

  • I was a deliberate self harmer. As of my experience it's better not to say to any friend or family person... They bully, tease or get it wrong... Just take a professional help.

    • Tell them something like you scratched yourself or you fell over something.

    • ... or just tell them to go fuck with their own business...

  • That's tough. I went to the guidance counselor at school. If you really want help that's the best place to get it. They will tell people who need to know and get you in to see someone
