    So im talking to a friend of mine, and she's bi polar...she's one of the nicest, coolest girls ive met, but she's bi polar and mood swings from sad to unhappy frequently...she basically has no self esteem...she also refuses to take any medication about it which I can understand...

    anyway were talking about some issues of hers and she begins crying and saying how she used to cut herself across her arms and stomach a lot...i'm thinking "wow thats really bad this girl is either bullshitting me for attention or just needs some serious help.." but then I see her scars across parts of her arm and stomach...now i have no idea what to say after seeing that but just asking why?...I really couldnt get a straight answer out of her, and im trying not to look or sound too weird about it...

    The whole point of this thread was to see if anyone of you knew anyone like this, who you helped...im just looking for some advice...

    You're not thinking about cutting her are you? That could get you in LOTS of trouble if it goes bad...

    Allright, look... you said it so I'm not 'callin you stupid' BUT... If you're stupid then you have ABSOLUTELY NO BUSINESS getting mixed up with a crazy girl.

    Run the other way.

    -----


    i knew a kid, a pretty good friend of mine actually, and he was all suicidal and shit and i was so sick of talkin to him like; chill man you dont gotta do this, things will get better, and i was like you know what fuck it, you wanna slit your wrists then do it, i pulled out my switch blade and offered it to him...i held it out for like a minute...he just looked at it and then said to me "you know what fuck that shit, put your knife away"....ever since then hes been normal


    this might not work with a girl...and just to make the story clear i wasnt bout to let him do it, it was a tough love thing...and it worked

    im not great with writing...and yea, it does annoy me a lot when she swings to that sad hopeless mode...but she also can be one of the funnest people to be around..

    I dont know.... I think I might be too much of a sissy to try that tough love...because if she does do something that is serious to her heath because I offered, i'd feel horrible...

    im really feeling bad for this girl and i dont even know her, so you must be real fucked right now...you gotta convince her into takin medicine or something, i wouldnt recomend the touch love, that was between me and one of my boys, girls are way more fragil and prolly wont get it through thier head, if you really care bout her you gotta get her to take the meds man, its the only way before she hurts herself and the others around her, laydown the facts to her, let her know how much it hurts everyone she knows and that shes not alone that thier are a lot of people like that, she mostly likely dont want to take the medicine because its embarassing, "oh 2 oclock gotta take my antidepresents", let her know that it aint gonna change peoples perception on her, let her know its the only way...

    known plenty of people like that...
    we affectionately refer to them as punk rock scars...
    she'll get over it and have some nasty scars to live with after...
    tell her to get tattooed... it hurts more and leaves a better looking scar...
    sorry, but i've known so many people that do that shit that i really can't take it seriously anymore...

    i'm kinda serious about that the tattoo shit tho... it's some people i know, myself included a little...
