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,

My mother is dying of cancer and I want to hurt myself constantly. I have attempted already.

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 .

    I have 3 close friends at school. Outside of school I have one. I'm soon going up to Secondary school. 2 of my friends, Kathryn and Sophie, are quite mean to me and others in the class. They call me names and push me around. I don't like it but afraid to tell them. They are also quite rude to teachers. When it's just me and Kathryn it's fine and I am wondering if it's just Sophie making an impression. I go to a small school (81 pupils) and making friends is hard for me. Please help!!

    Don't worry too, you'll grow up too and live on your own, I noticed that my aunt is unfair to children (except to her child) and I can't wait to be an adult (she's afraid to adults). And when you grow up, don't make revenge to your parents, I know that you still love them. Trust me, things would get worse if you make revenge.
