Alright, so I'm in high school and I just started dating this really amazing guy. We are pretty open with each other, which is the only reason I'm considering telling him. I've struggled with depression, anorexia, anxiety... It's a lot and I don't want to scare him away. It's just that I can't wear short-sleeve shirts because he'll notice the cuts on my arm and I know that eventually my sleeve will slide up or he'll ask why I only wear sweatshirts. I know I need to be honest but I'm just really scared... Please, what should I do?
How/when should I tell my boyfriend about my mental illness. I'm scared and don't know what to do?

If it is serious between you (not based on the amount of time but your emotions and commitment) then it's better to be open and honest sooner rather than later.1
My crush has the same problem with you. Exactly same problem. He and i are friends so maybe it won't help...
But i wanna tell you... Just tell him honestly you are suffering from them. If he's a good person and care about you, he will be fine no matter what :)
When he talked to me about his mental illness, i never scared or feel anything negative. I just accepted it and said him I wouldn't care and said he was an amazing person and i wanted to help and support him no matter what.
Good luck girl!1
