Ok, I really need some advice...
My mum and I think my brother may be cutting himself.
A little while ago I noticed a cut down his wrist and I jokingly said 'did you try and cut your wrist' and he said 'no, I slipped when I was making lunch' and that was that.
On Friday we went out and at lunch I noticed 5 or 6 cuts down his wrist. I said what's that all about and he said he fell over out the front and scraped it on the corner of the brick wall. I said about the last time and he just laughed. I just stared at him with an 'I'm on to you buddy haha' kind of look and he laughed and said 'now I'm self conscious!'
I mentioned it to my DH when I got home and he said I was being silly. I didn't think of it again.
Then this morning my mum came over to go out with me and DD and she said 'I have to tell you something, I feel sick, I think you already know' and then told me she thought he was cutting himself.
She asked him about his wrist and he told her the same thing. She was mucking around saying 'what, are you doing it on purpose' etc etc and he was laughing and saying yeah right.
The next morning she got up and there was a few drops of blood on the floor downstairs. She asked him if he'd hurt himself last night and he said no so she just assumed it was Dad.
When my dad got home (she hasn't said anything to him) he went upstairs and said to my brother 'how many fingers did you cut off last night, haha' as he'd found bloody tissues. My brother told him he'd had a nose bleed.
So mum went upstairs after dad was gone and said 'you lied' and he was laughing and said I did have a nose bleed.
So now mums all worried she's going to find him in his room or something IYKWIM
What should we do?????
