They all react different.
I told my best friends around 2 years ago, she just wrinkled her nose and didn’t say much. My mom found out 6 months ago when my school nurse found out and called her. She forced me to show my arm and then she just asked “why”? But she never mentioned it again. I think she told my dad but he has never said anything about it. I told my boyfriend that I used to cut(not that I still cut). He said ‘Oh.. my little Emo-girlfriend’. Those words hurt me. Another friend knows too and she’s a cutter, but I only told her that I used to cut. A couple of internet friends knows to and I think they just feel sorry for me.
