My friend doesn’t have many friends (I am her only friend). We live in separate countries. She messages me multiple times a day. I am pretty sure there’s some emotional abuse in her relationship from what she’s said, the way he talks to her, the things he says….now she’s messaged me saying she hates work, shes lonely and she is tempted to cut herself like she used to. Please help me. I have told her to speak to a professional but then she messages me afterwards saying she’s feeling better. I don’t trust her fiance so won’t be messaging him (also don’t have his number).
Please help me help my fragile friend. This is breaking my heart.

londongirl1988 : I do not think this is particularly something anyone else can help you with. She needs professional help. The fact that she messages you to tell you she is going to cut again is messed up. I think you should reevaulate your friendship as this is completely toxic for you and your life. She needs more than a therapist encounter every so often.

Im sorry youre going through this. The good news is people who cut/self harm are often doing it to relieve stress/anxiety and not to try to commit suicide. She really needs professional help. If you cannot contact her family to help her, I would suggest you contact police for a welfare check.
