U should tell an adult 2 help personally. Or you should talk to her and calm her down.

"Who does deppression hurt? Everyone.
Where does deppression hurt? Everywhere."

Tell. Now. it is the BEST thing you could ever do for her. You jst have to. Because if you don't... all those deep wounds she makes, each one could become infected, and some infections are worse than others...
and deppression is an issue. It's not an emotion, it's a disease. So please tell. In her own way... she NEEDS you to tell. You may be her only hope.

Cutting? Emo? Nah.

She's goin' through a depressed stage. You should tell someone, or try to figure out what's her problem. It might not really be anything serious...maybe she wanted to try out skateboarding and really...uh...sucks at it. (No offense.)

Tell someone you trust, or try to figure out what she's doing.

I went through something like that once. It was freaky...I lost a lot of my friends over that.

Anyways, best of luck.

Nobody found out I cut until I had already been doing it for three years. They found out because I decided I wanted help. I didn't get help. However, a year and a half later I 'got help' by being hospitalized. They gave me unnessesary medication. I got out of the hospital, I cut. A year later I was hospitalized again. They gave me good meds this time. I got out, I still cut. Another year later, I still cut, but not as often.

Even if you get her help or tell someone, it doesn't guarentee she'll stop. It didn't for me. Sure it calmed me down, but I haven't completely stopped.

If you do anything. Tell her mom and don't be too pushy about it towards her. My friends are pushy about it. An old friend that I've litterally known since the day I was born decided that if she slapped my arms over and over, it'd make me stop. I shoved her down my stairs. She broke her arm. She didn't do it anymore. I haven't talked to her in two years.

I personally hated people being annoying about it towards me. All it did was make things worse.

There's a chance that telling a parent about it might help her, but there's a chance that it might make things worse. I think you should tell her mom and make sure her mom doesn't say you told her, but someone else did. That might help her to not think you betrayed her.
