[female, age 14, began to SI at age 13, high school student]
I told my parents and they (specifically my mom) flipped out. They got so upset and have been really supportive ever since. I told a couple friends and they understood but made me promise not to do it again. However, that is a promise that I did not keep. The school nurse called me into her office one day and told me that one of the girls in our school (it’s an all girls school if you hadn’t caught up on that yet) had seen my cuts and were worried. She then brought in my guidance counselor and they both had a long but nice talk with me. After that they made me leave school for the day and get help basically because I was a danger to myself.
