yes she did but unfortunately she did not want to talk to them and she has been talking to a counsellor at school but since she has the cutting is increasing and getting worse. I know I have to look past the self harm and try to understand the reason why she is doing what she is doing but as a mum it is difficult
Can I take her against her will. I get the impression that I cannot drag her to the doctors if she does not want to seek help. She is at her dad's at the moment she comes home tomorrow. but she will not let me tell her dad as she does not want to disappoint him. So I can take her to A & E. My niece works for the police and she said that if I caught her cutting herself I could call the police is this right? but catching her would be very difficult.
What would the police do if I called them? would she be sectioned under the mental health act? I don't know what the best thing to do is. I am so worried. She just seems to brush things aside and tell me all is ok. but I am not daft, things are not ok.
When I suggest things to her she tells me that I cannot blackmail her and she cannot just cold turkey as she calls it. This is just not about her she has a younger sister who is autistic and a younger impressionable brother this affect them too they get quite upset by her mood swings and I get the impression that teachers are coming down on her as she is behind in school work. Why does she do this to herself. she will never be able to wear a pretty dress!
