And just ask yourself, cherry pitball,
why they feel the need to go to such drastic measures for ‘a bit of attention’ As a teen I almost took an overdose in front of my mother, yes I wanted to get a rise out of her, i wanted to to get her head out of her ass and realize how much pain I was in.
I self harmed everyday, my mother saw those cuts saw those cuts sometimes, did she ever say anything? Did she ever ask me what was wrong? You bet your ass she didn’t. With this, and other issues, I was left feeling like my own mother didn’t give a crap about me so I did something drastic because yes I was crying out for attention and what is wrong with that? What is wrong with wanting someone to acknowledge your pain? Could I of gone though it a better way? Sire, but I was a 14 yr old suffering from depression! It is really up to anyone to decide who is legitimately depressed and who is just a teenager looking for attention? No of corse not, that question alone raises so many red flags. People react to having depression differently, teens more so BECAUSE THEY ARE FUCKING TEENAGERS, the shit that your mind and body is going though at that age is bad enough throw depression and suicidal tendencies into the mix and you’re really fucked.
