Dear iamcool0808,

You need to hook up with some help ASAP. Unfortunately, I'm not the kinda help you need. How do you know you're 5 weeks pregnant? Did you take a home test or did you go to a clinic. Becuase if you've taken a home pregnancy test and that's all, you need to get yourself to a doctor. The thing about the home test is they're not really reliable. The test itself is pretty accurate... so much so that many doctors and clinics use them. But the test can give a false result when the instructions aren't followed properly. I guess what I'm trying to say is, when you're nervous you can make mistakes.

You still need to deal with this AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I know you don't want to hear this but you should talk to your parents. They are the best people in the world to help you. They love you and your knows she's got the experience... she's had babies of her own. And if you're scared that they are going to get mad, well come on you're their baby, of course they're going to react. But they still your parents and they love you and they will want to help you. If you really can't face your parents, talk to a doctor or maybe your fave teacher at school. The point is, you need an adult in your corner.

You've got another issue you need to deal with quickly. I'm guessing you had unprotected sex, which means you may have contracted an STD. Sexually Transmitted Diseases are no joke girl. AIDS is an STD. If you are old enough to have sex (and I don't think you are,) you are old enough to take responsibility for your health. Check out the list below for the 411 on your health, pregnancy and support near you.

Taking Care of Business,

  • Talk to an adult. Your mom and dad are the best option in most cases. You made a mistake... don't make it worse by not talking with your 'rents. Family is about supporting each other during the hard times. Give them a chance to help you. If 'rents are totally out of the question, talk to a doctor, school nurse or teacher. You need someone who can give you direction.
  • Get properly tested for pregnancy and STDs.
  • Speak with a doctor (your family doctor or the local free clinics) about what the next step is.
  • Get informed. Learn everything you need to know to make grown up decisions. Remember one thing when reviewing sites or talking to someone about your options - almost everyone has an agenda. That means there are clinics and help you. This is why having an adult in your corner is really important. Having a trustworthy adult help you, will make it easier for you to make the choice that is right for you.

So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to Dish-It here. But 'member, if ya hang out in Chat with other Kidzworld members who know ya by your 'username', ya might wanna use a secret nickname when ya write in. That way no one'll ever know it's you. And, just in case ya don't know, Dish-It gets a lotta letters everyday, and she can't answer 'em all. So keep checkin' the column cuz she's prob'ly answerin' somethin' very similar to your question while you're out doin' somethin' else. K? And Thanks! Ya keep her outta trouble. Oh! And if ya've got words of wisdom you wanna share, We'll dish 'em up, too.

Dear Dish-it, This is really strange for me to write to you because I have never done anything like this before but I need an outside POV from my situation and I need help. These days, I don't know what I'm doing or what tomorrow is going to bring. But before I get into how I feel, I am going to explain my situation a bit first. So let's get started. My family is a family of 6 though my oldest sibling has left the house to live else where because he's 26 years old. Anyway, I argue a lot in my family in fact there's fights everyday either with me or just between other family members. I don't remember a time that we didn't fight... Sad ain't it? But I try and not let it bother me. My mom and me have the best and worst relationship out there. At one time, we understand ourselves completely but then something happens and the arguments stop... It always ends with her angry and me frustrated, crying and angry... I have cried more in the past year and half (That is when it got worst) Then my entire lifespan so far. Plus since she had a bad childhood, she tries to make everything different from hers but she ALWAYS compares me to her. I am a different person than her and she just doesn't understand that! I always feel really bad after because she wants me to be the perfect child but I can't and I never will be. I am just me. Like today, I punched a wall because I just wanted to feel something else than sadness and worst thing is that I fake smiles and optimism at school so nobody knows. My friends don't understand even though I have told them but now I brush it off. It's not their life so they don't need to understand it. But that's my situation... Now that you have heard something about me, I need help. I'm sending myself in the abyss. I am losing control. I feel as if everything is slipping from my fingers and everything is falling apart. I don't know what's happening to me! I am losing myself and I don't know what to do! It's hard to keep up my grades, to make sure that everything is done, that I go to my activities after school. It feels so hard to do right now... I throw things and slam doors when I am super mad. I don't have anger issues but I keep in so many emotions that I explode when I can't take them anymore. My world seems to be crumbling before my eyes. My family is in debt, my parents might split and my brothers hate me. My dog, running, drawing and books are my only escape.  I don't know what to do... Sincerely LostintheAbyss
