cathy :

hold on one second.

Customer:

recently, i just got out of a relationship with this boy that i was with for two months. and, just recently, i've been bleeding excessively from my vagina, so i figured it was a miscarriage. i told him about it and he so happened to tell one of my ex best friends. she called me and laughed about it. so i called him and asked him why he told her. and he said he was worried about it, so he went to her, but now, my reputation is on the line and i'm afraid what people will think or say. this all happened today. i started making myself throw up 3 weeks ago and i've lost 15+ pounds. and i have two burn marks. one on my wrist and one on my leg.

Customer:

okay

cathy :

Hi Jessica. JA has rules that we are not allowed to work with people under the age of 18 so the best I can do is to email you and your MOM and make sure Mom is there on Q and A. can we do this Jessica?

Customer:

of course.

Customer:

her email is***@******.***

cathy :

Okay I am switching this over and from this point forward it becomes an email exchange. Here we go.

Customer:

okay.

cathy :

I am not going to email her. I am going to switch the format on JA from live chat to email chat. You will see that happen in a moment or two. Thanks for your patience.

Customer:

okay.

Customer:

Hi Lyne and Jessica. I am sorry. On JA we are not permitted to work with people under the age of 18 but I am addressing this to Lyne and am glad Jessica is there to translate because as we saw my French is horrible.

Okay, first things first. Lyne is very very upset and beside herself that Jessica is self harming and Jessica gave me answer that sounds very much like what most teenagers do. Not such great behavior at all, not such safe behavior but none the less, what teenagers do. So Jessica is behaving as if she is a teenager and not a grown up lady and Lyne naturally is scared out of her wits, as I would be.

Are we all in agreement on this?

Thanks, Cathy
