Dear Dish-It, My Mom Is Dying of Cancer


Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

Dear julie-ann,

I'm really sorry to hear about your mom being sick. I totally understand why you would feel so helpless in this situation but the last thing you should do is hurt yourself. How do you think your mom would feel to know that you were trying to take your own life? Despite what she is going through, I bet she would do anything in her power to make sure you were happy and safe. So many people don't realize how important the people in their lives are until they are gone, but you have a rare opportunity. You're able to let your mom know how much she means to you and spend as much time as possible doing stuff together. No, this doesn't make up for her not being around in the future, but wouldn't you rather have a ton of good memories to hang onto rather than memories of a bunch of suicide attempts? If you haven't already, you should definitely sit down and talk with someone about what you're feeling right now. Whether that's your mom, dad, teacher, etc. you need to stop bottling up all your emotions. If you can't bring yourself to talk to someone one-on-one, check out www.suicidehotlines.com for completely anonymous help lines throughout the United States.


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 .

    Not really throughout my life but I guess since bullying is repeated teasing, once in fifth grade these kids made up the joke that my name(Su for those you that don't know) stood for StupidUgly, which I mean wasn't THAT bad but I was like what, 10 xD I mean I let it roll off but did end up crying in the shower once. My mom caught me and made me explain everything and made it better. So really, instead of hiding it I recommend talking to an adult about it if you're ever bullied, even tho keeping it a secret may seem like a good idea.  Ever since then I've never been bullied. I'm thankful fo that c;

    YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumoursspread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.
