I am African American and I self harm
I am 13. My parents found out that I have been cutting for the past 3 years and the first thing that came out of my moms mouth was
"T. Those are white girl problems."
She doesn't know that the majority of female self harmers are African American.
She has gotten my extended family to hate and resent me and she act like its a phase. My dad hasn't talked to me about anything and he acts like I don't exist.
Little does she know that ever since she found out I have started again.
