IF your child admitted to cutting and taking pills..
over the counter but nonetheless in dangerous quanities. And not just little scratches, but big gashes across her arms.
how would you react?
I ask because I was always made to feel like an attention whore. I told my mom i got sick and od'd on ibuprofen because I was scared she wouldnt let me move back in and I was no longer wanted where I was staying and all she did was laugh at me and say, "pff you actually thought that would kill you?" I was fourteen maybe fifteen idk I can't remember. I wish she fuckin turned me over to ministry care. By the time I was sixteen, I had already gotten into drugs, and i carry self-inflicted scars up and down my left arm and leg to this day. It had turned into a major addiction and I stopped when I got too good at it, and then started again when I was around eighteen. I realized that this time I was older and better at it and forced myself to decide to completely change my living situation or admit myself to the psych ward. I have to live with these reminders that no one wanted to help me, or i wouldnt let them. Idk.
