Dear Dish-It, I'm Scared to Go to School

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 .

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says
