You need to think thoroughly about things, you might have gone through suffering, but so has everyone. It might not be as dramatic as yours, but you MUST understand pain is relative, not subjective.
Come on man, do you think ANYBODY really needs to hear that? We're not here to tear each other to pieces; I think these days the real world does enough tearing teenagers down.

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.

I wish you luck, and who's stopping you? Plenty call me naive, but I believe we only get this one life, and it's not worth settling for anything less than everything you want. Pursue what you want to do, and pursue it and nothing else. Don't get distracted. Don't get sidetracked. If you're going to fail, fail epicly.

Whatever you choose to do, I hope things get better, and you see that everybody is worth something. If you ever need anything, I'll do my best to be here to talk.

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.

Re: Just..Read, Please.

Right, to start this off you are NOT worthless! You didn't deserve anything that happened to you and i am so sorry that you had to go through that - especially at such a young age. There are alot of people out there who do care about you. You are so very special and so strong to have dealt with that and still be standing strong today.
Your sisters and family must be so proud of you. I hope they see you as their inspiration!

When you say that nobody understands, your wrong. There are alot of other girls who feel exactly the same. Obviously every story is different and everyone copes in completely different ways. I was abused as a child - sexually. The same with you, i am glad it was me and not my sisters. I started cutting myself when i was 11 years old, i started with my wrists and then my legs. I still have scars to this day. When i was 14 years old my best friend and boyfriend of two years passed away in a car accident. I was heart broken. he had been there for me through everything and he was gone. No goodbye, nothing. Your boyfriend must have gotten scared when you told him, it is alot for someone to take in. You deserve so much better though hun, trust me!
I went to the Doctors and was put on medication. Over eight years i saw 3 doctors, 5 counsellors and a therapist. Two years ago i developed an eating disorder and lost over two stone and was very underweight (i was also sent to a specialist about this). Just over eight months ago i attempted to commit suicide. Thats when i realised i couldn't carry on my life like this.

I am very grateful to everyone who has helped me get to where i am now. Yes, i still suffer with an eating disorder but it is getting better. I no longer class myself as having depression although i do have my ups and downs - who doesn't! I can't say i'll never cut again, like you said it is an addiction and it's one i hope i can eventually quit.

You are a real trooper and i do very hope that one day you'll have a smile on your face - one that is 100% real and not forced. With the positive attitude you have i am sure you'll get there. I have faith in you!

I hope you've inspired lots of other girls out there to tell their story and to get help before it's too late!

Good luck with the future,
Stay strong and stay positive,
Lorah,
x
