You made this situation so very real. Excellent job.
Wow this is a powerful story on a difficult, yet prevalent, subject. You did an awesome job of pulling the reader in. I could feel the MC's pain emanating from the page.

It may have been a bit more of a grab if you had started with the MC running into the bathroom and pulling out the bottle.

I think you did a subtle job of covering the topic. The title really pulled it altogether for me. I think it's a totally different take on the word rest, but as your title indicates it is on topic. This is a fantastic bit of writing. My heart hurts for all those who have that need to cut. I stopped and said a prayer for everyone who needs to abuse self as a way to get through the day. Powerful writing.
