She says it doesn't hurt, and that she did them with a pencil.
I don't think there's much wrong with her home life, and I don't know shit about her school life, or her other friends for that matter.
She says it's nothing and that she'll stop. I plan to tell her mom later, after I think about it some more.
I don't know if she's a masochist, because I know she enjoys ripping the skin on her toes until they bleed, and that she likes to fall often.
She doesn't seem sad or depressed to me, but I don't know if she's lying.
I never thought of doing just because I reasoned with myself, and was aware of how harmful it can be. I don't know if this is serious or not, and it's worrying me a lot.

It's definitely something to keep an eye on though, I'm just saying don't judge her or anything or tell her she has every reason to be happy or anything like that.

I think that's probably one of the worst things ever. Crying is a sign of weakness and the fact that we can get to a point where we've given up to the point where we cannot muster up the emotional energy to show our weakness is just the saddest thing in the world.
Hang in there, Millo. As completely cliche as it is, there are other fish in the sea. If it didn't work out, it must not have been meant to be in the first place.
