[FONT=""][COLOR=""][SIZE=""]I feel like I want to cut. At my friend's house, she was a in door pool and were swimming, everything is going fine until her brother walked in and staring at us. He has his hands down his pants, my friend said stop it, go away, he didn't. She got her parents, they said so so sorry. I got out of the pool and felt uncomfortable. Now I want to cry and cut. What's wrong with me?[/size][/color][/font]

I know you wrote this a few days ago but I hope you have been hanging in there. I hope writing this helped you out, even if only a little bit.

There is nothing wrong with you. Your friend's brother shouldn't have done that and it is completely understandable to feel uncomfortable and upset about it. Perhaps the feeling you had reminded you of how you felt some other time, such as the sadness of the uncomfortable feeling. Sometimes certain feelings lead to self-harm urges especially if they symbolize something triggering to you.

Have you been able to talk to anyone about this? Maybe your parents, a friend, or someone else in your life you feel comfortable talking to? TeenHelp has some helpful alternatives at the top right of your screen, right next to the Safety Zone. I encourage you to take a look at them and find some that work for you.

We're here for you.
