    Argh. So about a year ago i had quite bad mental health problems. I used a kind of diary to sort of work out my emotions (it sounds mad but it helped) In the end it became a bit of a secret holder.

    I found it recently and kind of looked back through it and just put it back on my book shelf. But today my sister and her friend have been in my room all day and i sat down a minute ago and the book stack it was in have been rumeged about and the book with the secrets in has been turned over. Im a bit scared because it has things in it like a pregnancy scare and photos, and stuff about a **** buddy etc. Just stuff you really dont want family knowing. I know im stupid for keeping it really.

    But now im a bit scared. If she looked through it she will know everything and i will be devesated. I've moved the book, i just hope she doesnt tell my mum. I dont know whether to approach her about it or just leave it? Its the kind of thing she will bring up in an argument but unlikely to bring it up before. I dont know what to do and im worried. Im not even close to my sister :sad:

    Try and sit tight, it is likely they wouldnt have looked at it, even if they did they may not say anything about it. Sit tight and hope she wont say anything. If she does it may be good just to talk to you mum about it when you get the chance and explain what it was, your mum is likely to respect your privacy and hopefully not be to probing about it.

    or, better idea, set the book on fire and throw it at her, then you destroy the book and also send out a clear message.

    This is good advice.

    Don't worry about it too much OP.

    Write on the cover:

    Anne taylor: Musings of a Psychopath

    Then write a short preface talking about how your life helped inspire the creation of this 'character' and though the people in the book are real, all events and situations are a work of fiction. Use that excuse when and if she brings it up, and show her the aforementioned title and preface as proof if she thinks you are bluffing. I'll think of another cunning lie if you're not happy with this one :P

    This is why you should always burn evidence of insanity.

    This includes any offspring you may have 'by accident' with a random one night stand.

    My parents put me in the oven as a child. Thankfully I took refuge in a spare bit of foil and survived.
