    Oh, Ananda. That is such a hard thing to go through. I’ve helped many friends through this type of thing, and I know it sounds cliche and un-helpful, but it does get better. Just try to stay strong and show your friend that you care. Sometimes that’s all a person needs.
    And just remember that you, and your friend, are not alone.
    Sending hugs and prayers your way.

    Britney, that is literally me every summer.

    I think my brain slowly degrades due to the mediocrity of summer. I’m with ya, Britney

    Britney just described my past three summers. I hope this one turns to out to be a little less mediocre.

    Ananda, I used to be a lot like Jessica (minus an awesome friend like you). Cutting is a hard habit to break, in a lot of ways it’s an addiction. I agree with the other commenters; just show her that you care, that her life is precious to you. I also agree that things will get better, but true recovery takes a lot of time and relapses. If my younger self had a friend as awesome and supportive as you are I’m sure I would have recovered faster.

    Damn, that last sentence of Ananda’s entry just hit me so hard.
