Dear Straight Talk: My friend has huge family
problems and is cutting his wrists. The cuts aren't deep, but his
arm is infected because his parents lock the medicine cabinet and
he isn't cleaning it properly. He showed me and some other girls
the infection and told us not to tell our parents. But some girls
did tell and now, behind his back, their parents are planning a
first-aid package and intervention in his family problems. One
parent said he might be suicidal. I'm worried he will be furious
that we told and will more likely commit suicide when he realizes
he can't trust anyone. Am I way off about this? - Please help,
I'm so scared
