Oh my gosh, I do that too! o_o
But I always feel bad when I do, because I start asking them questions like "so why do you think you feel like that, exactly?" and start diagnosing why they do feel like that, and they're like, "can you just tell me it's all going to be okay or something?!" xD

But the more extreme things...I just want to fix. And learn about.
I only wish my school offered classes on it...

Gosh, I'm worried about my friend. She's always down and depressed and it's getting worse . . . I'm trying to help her out but it's hard. Seeing her sad makes me sad. I just want her to feel better . . . .

D: Maybe talk to her and see why she's feeling down? If it gets bad, I'd report it to a counselor at school.

:'/ I'm really concerned... I have a friend who is more acquaintance-y than friend, I s'pose... (I'm not reallg clpse, but we talk and joke and stuff), and I saw her in a sleeveless shirt and... *winces*

She has these deep scar all up her shoulder and arm and asdhysvbn *shudders* She's been cutting. Deep. I want to tell someone but I don't know who to tell and it's just really sad and bothering me and... ;~;

But then, my desire to help totally fades and gives way to pure fascination when we start talking about more serious issues, like people who display symptoms of mental illness like psychosis and stuff. I suppose I start to "analyze" people who try to talk to me about that stuff, and I've actually had a couple people get mad at me because I was viewing them as puzzles rather than people. XD DX

People are generally puzzles, at least to me. XD

If you could get her an anonymous note asking her to stop, that would be great. I dunno. *shrug*

If she's not really close, it's probably a pretty bad idea to try and interfere. Trust me, when that's happening, the last thing a cutter needs is a therapist or someone they don't trust shoving their face into it. There is about a 0.01 chance that she will die from cutting, since it's harder than you think to hit any kind of nerve and it takes a long time to work up the pain endurance and anger to actually cause serious damage. Around here, my generation is REALLY messed up in the head, so there are a LOT of people walking around in short sleeves with scars up their arms, and all the non-cutters respect the fact that whether they want help is their choice, and frankly, these cutters don't want to be helped. x_x
So... unless you're on best friend level with this girl, I probably wouldn't recommend getting into it--also, I'm pretty sure she won't get a choice whether she wants to refuse counselling or not. It's best to let her find her own way. :( I know, it feels bad, but... eh.

I wouldn't do anything until you're sure that she is cutting. It could be some scar from surgery or something. If she has scars on both her arms, than probably she is.
I agree with Sandy also.

Sad/Mad/Irritated: So I had an original schedule, and I ended up with Mr. Lincoln (false name): the best gym teacher ever! And today I had a conference with my homeroom teacher. It turns out I have Mrs. Abraham (again, false name): the gym teacher who treats me like a two year old...

LOL, Abraham Lincoln.
Well, ask to switch back. Give reasons why.

I kinda knew about this for a while, and I don't think telling anyone would help her so much as just relieve the stress for you. It's a hard thing to go through, and when your friends are cutting, it's just as hard on you as it is on your friend. So, I'd just say... nothing. For now, anyways.
