Hey There

You sound like a great friend to be this worried for someone I would just make sure that you are always there for her to talk to - make sure you are approachable to her. If she still doesn't feel happy to talk to you - some abuse victims don't like to talk because they feel it's their own fault - then maybe you could find a way of bringing it up?

Just tell her that your worried about her (because of what you'd recently seen, heard, read ect?!).

You don't want to pressure her into talking to you - as you don't know for sure yet whether or not the actual abuse is taking place. Have you told her about TeenHelp? Maybe you could bring it up, so that she knows of somewhere anonymous she could seek help? If you find out for definite that she IS being abused, then I would maybe wait for the right time and then bring up with her.

Remember that victims are often made to feel like it is their own fault they are abused. Be prepared for vivid details if she does open up to you - as she may need to get it all out of her system. You must not get angry - but react in a calm manner. Let her know of the various different ways of seeking help.

Finally, make sure you check these out :http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f13-r...use-resources/

I hope this helped. I you need anything else feel free to message me.

Must have been a miracle
It's been one hell of a ride
Destination still unkown
It's a fact of life: If you make one wrong move with a gun to your head
You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead.


I'm a runaway train on a broken track
I'm the ticker on the bomb that you can't turn back
Thats right.
I got away with it all and I'm still alive.
Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.

thanks for ur advice's Claire ^^

im trying my best, lettin her know that im ther for her, that shes not alone ect.
trying to bring it up too once in a while, but as soon as she realise what it is im trying to get her to talk to me about, she just get angry :S
she has a way of gettin angry really easy when in a bad mood :/
shes very defensive sometimes.

she knows im worried about her, she just tries to tell me nothing in it, which i know aint true at all.
she usually get everything done on her own, no help for anything, too independend i guess. which makes it only harder to help her :/

Is there no way you guys could meet up? It's often easier to talk in person, and have hugs and stuff.
At the time being though, it sounds like there is nothing more you can do; but lets see if anyone else on here comes up with some bright ideas :]
