And then Kora speaks for Annie by relating via her own experiences. Their conversations are weird and hard to follow because they both say the same things, using different examples.

I've tried to explain it before, and I know that what Kora just said about her cutting is confusing.Some people think cutting is about making pain. Very rarely is it about the physical pain. It is about changing mental pain into a physical form. Your body can heal. Your mind is much harder to deal with. It is NOT healthy and I am NOT advocating for anyone to EVER do it. I am just explaining what that sentence meant.

What Kora did in that last frame is what you would always do when you want a person to be safer from themselves. They might find it insulting, but it might also be the only question that they need to be asked. So many mental health professionals ask me if I am safe, as in, will I end my own life. Do I have a plan to kill myself. The answer is usually no. They really couldn't care less about how much damage I do to my body or how my behavior might drive me to a place where I could accidentally die. They just ask if I will intentionally kill myself. That isn't what Kora asked. She asked if Annie will hurt herself. If she will take actions to compromise her health or wellbeing.
I wish this is something more doctors are trained to ask. And respond to. I went to a clinic a week and a half ago to get a referral to the hospital because my depression is getting to a low point again. Or at least, I know it will be getting down there very soon. Rarely does it make me suicidal, because that just takes too much effort. But it always, always ends with blood. I told them, I won't make it through this without more cuts. I showed her my cuts from the past. I have yet to receive a phone call to deal with this. And it is getting worse by the day.

Being supportive of your friends is one thing. Asking them a very weighted question like what Kora just did? That is a whole new level. I wish I had someone to ask me that.

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: Not to be trite, but that would be way too much codependance in one place. They would be cute together, but at least one of them needs their issues fixed before they could even contemplate being together.

Also, Kora is straight.
