Dear son
This is a seriousvmatter… its important to discuss this with your parents and doctor.
This situation is curable… life is at stake if u do not take urgent medical advice counselling and therapy…
Donot hesitate to share all your feelings in family.…l
All kids who do such things … need not go to rehab… unless you also have any more history.
Take care.
