You need to stay strong. Not just for your family this time, but for you. Life can be incredibly hard and seem so unfair, but it will get better. I noticed that my best friend had slashed wrists sometime last year, and felt awful that I hadn't noticed before.

When she refused to stop because she said she couldn't, I went straight to our form tutor and told her about it. She helped my friend with councilling and talking to her parents about things happening at home. As a result of my 'betrayal' she no longer speaks to me, but I see her everyday, coping with things much better than before.

If you don't feel that others will tell for you, then please approach a trusted responsible person who can help you. You don't have to suffer. Good luck and lots of love and I'm here if you need to talk.xxx
