Advice for someone who cares for someone who self harms
Hi, my girlfriend told my a while ago she had an eating disorder and cut herself. I want to help her but don't really know how. For example, sometimes we're talking by the internet and she suddenly stops answering (most times this happens we had been talking previously about self harm) and i get the feeling she might be cutting herself, but don't know whether y should say something or not. I know she's not supposed to stop self harming and start seeing herself in an objective way all of a sudden, but still... If anyone could give me some advice on what to say or to do to make her feel better, it'd be lovely ^^
