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


Dear Dish-It,

On Dec. 18th I had an operation on my feet. The doctor said I can't go to school until Feb. 3rd. Now I feel scared to go back to school. I think that when I go back to school the kids in my classroom will treat me different. I'm scared. What should I do?

Dear jessyangel,

It's totally understandable that you'd be a little freaked about heading back to school after this operation. Having an operation is stressful enough, but having to deal with a million questions from your classmates can be equally scary. Most peeps will just be curious about what you've been going through, and why you had to have the operation in the first place, so fill them in with as much or as little detail as you feel comfortable sharing. Let your friends know what you've been up to at home all this time - give them updates on all the soaps and cheesy talk shows - and then have them fill you in on any gossip you may have missed. Before you know it, things will be back to normal and your surgery will just be a thing of the past. Good Luck!


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 .

    My brother is 15 and he makes fun of everything I do. I used to get along with him when I was younger but now that we're older he's started acting like a jerk. He always picks on the things I'm most insecure about and it happens all the time. What should I do?
