    It appears that Keista helped to identify this as her "courting ritual". New boyfriend almost always equals drama of the attention-seeking type.

    She has been fine on the surface and has not posted anything else an the subject of self-harm on Tumblr.

    As I stated in my previous post, she's never actually cut,, so it's not like she's returning to this addictive behavior. What she seems to b addicted to is the drama that surrounds cutting.

    Believe me, I am still concerned about her need for drama and I think lying about cutting is very concerning, but right now all I can do is watch and wait. The drama is exhausting at times, but it is what it is.

    I'm almost sorry I was right. Seems like we have more experience and helpful advice for the really bad stuff actually happening, and not so much just for drama-making. :sigh:
