The other night i was at my stepsisters house and we were drinking and stuff... But she had scissors in her hand, and definetly cut her wrist... I tried to get the scissors from her, but she wouldnt give em to me. So, i guess what i want to know is, should i tell someone about this? Like maybe one day she will really kill herself. She's been through a lot too,like she had an abortion just a few months ago, and she never sees her dad, she was in the hospital cause she took extasy and almost died. So, please help me, should i tell someone?? IF so, who??

Absolutely. If someone if putting themself in danger, you have a moral (and sometimes legal) obligation to try to keep them safe. You can talk to a relative you trust, or call a crisis line (Kids Help Phone can be reached at 1-800-668-6868, and should be able to refer you to resources in your area), and I think you'll feel a lot better if you do. I'm going to try to send this over to Support Groups, where we havea lot of other topics on cutting, abuse, abortion, and similar topics.
