Also, she cuts. If you knew anything about suicide, cutting is only successful about 7% of the time. The probability of her surviving 16 attempts is .93^16 or still about 1/3.
But that's all beside the point. If you don't believe her, that's fine, but you don't have to come out and tell everyone you think she's lying. I for one have a number of friends I personally know who have been through similar experiences.
By apologizing you are doing her more harm than good.
She does not have the right to use past events to further her life, or play the sympathy card. I'm simply teaching her, before society destroys her.
If you think 'knowing' about suicide constitutes reading statistics you're dead wrong too. She stated suicide attempts, cutting is not a suicide attempt. It's a cry for attention. People who kill themselves often leave their family and loved ones wondering what the hell they did wrong because it's not obvious, it's not spoken about.
The fact she can type all of this out, infront of the world, with a real picture next to her profile clearly shows me she's comfortable with what happened (If it happened at all), and if so, why does she feel the need to say it?
Because she wants attention. I don't knock it, we all want attention, but my problem is you're trying to say who is right and wrong,
without realizing there is no right and wrong answer to this situation. I won't apologize, she's got over it, who cares?
The best way to help someone is to tell them the truth, and the truth is, if she wants to die, I'll give her all my support and so should you! Death isn't a macabre, black lifeless thing, there's real beauty in the fact you're giving back to nature what you've taken. I suggest you stop adding egotistical self-serving value to death, you're only fueling people to cut themselves.
I'd celebrate her willingness to die if I was her.
