All the information I’ve seen has identified self-injurers as not wanting to commit suicide. Since they injure in secret and don’t want others to know what they’re doing, are there any signs common to self-injurers that would warn loved ones that they may be contiplating suicide ? Some of the blogs that I’ve seen on Tumblr that many self-injurers have set up are VERY dark and scary. Many references to wanting to “fall asleep and never waking up” are very common. Trying to do my best to be informed and understand.

Thanks 🙂
