I found cut marks on my fifteen year old cousin's arm.

Carved into his flesh were the words "Kill Me".

And this was just sent to me:

His parents found this last month. 

I don't even know...


  1. oh dear :O did you try to talk to him? You have to do something, you have to react, let him know he's not alone :/ I have a friend that is cutting, I was nice to her and she didn't cut for a few days, I was always there for her, try to do something

  2. Yeah. It was Easter, so there were a lot of people around. I waited until we were alone and sat down next to him. I asked him about, it and if he was okay. He said he did it a month ago and didn't want to talk about it. I let him know that I love him and that he could always talk to me. Then we just sat and watched funny videos for awhile.

    Mona, my sister, took him for coffee the next day. He didn't want to really talk to her about it either, but she really showed him he was loved and that he had someone to talk to when he was ready.

    The rest of his family found out later on Sunday. Right now he is in impatient care. He opened up to the cutting and went willingly to get the help he needs.

    I sent him a message right before he went in reminding him that I loved him.

  3. I'm sorry to hear about your friend. It just breaks my heart. I'm glad that you are able to be there for her.
