So I know someone who unfortunately has some issues. She has been in and out of psych hospitals which didn't seem to have worked. She returned home only to continue cutting herself, even in public. I saw the scars on her arms and that will not be something that I am ever likely to forget. It is a tough situation, she is on meds but they either don't work or she is doing all of this for attention. So how on earth do you deal with someone like this? Do you go soft on her and give her sympathy or do you go the hard line and tell her to grow up and get on with her life and be everything that she can be?
I am torn between getting upset and crying over this situation and screaming abuse (not at her of course!) because she is doing really stupid things.
