Simon's Blog - December 7, 2004

December 7, 2004

I'm creating martial arts mayhem on a weekly basis now. I am totally psyched about my karate lessons. My instructor is awesome and I've already learned a ton of cool moves. I've met a couple of new friends in my class too. One guy, Josh, started the same time as me, so we usually hang out after karate.

Josh is super into weapons and stuff. He's always going on about swords and all the knives he has. He brought his Dad's hunting knife to karate last week to show me which was pretty crazy. But this week he was way out of control - he brought one of his Dad's guns to class! He brought it in his backpack and showed it to me after class in the changeroom. It didn't have any bullets in or anything, but it still scared the crap out of me. Josh says he's actually fired a gun before with his dad at a shooting range. I don't know if I believe him - all I know is that I didn't want anything to do with it.

I was going to tell my parents about it, but I didn't want be a snitch, so I just told Josh I didn't want to see it again. What would you guys do? Do any of your parents have guns in the house? .

Later,

Simon

    Dear Dish-It In The Forums

    I don't have ADHD, but I know plenty about it. One of my friends has ADHD and Tourette's, and the teachers were always turds about it. Anyway, i think that a good way to deal with ADHD acting up is either changing medication or trying to eat foods or drinks with caffeine. I'm not sure if it works for you, but a lot of people with ADHD have seen significant improvements after putting caffeine in their systems. If your friends are acting like turds, you need better friends. I hope my advice helps.

    Well, if they are your BFFs, they shouldn't be teasing you to make you feel bad. Me, and my BFFs tease each other all the time playfully, but I understand that this is different, and if it's making you feel bad it isn't playful at all.   Maybe your eldest friend is having some trouble with family issues, bad grades, body changes, etc. It's okay to be angry, so maybe you should leave her space for a few days, and see if it turns better. If it isn't, then try to first make her calm down. Then, make her talk to you about why she is so angry and ask if you can try to help. If nothing turns out better, tell her that you feel uncomfortable, and you want her to talk to you.  For your 3rd eldest friend, support her as much as possible, and stand up for her in this terrible situation. If you are all BFFs, then you should all be very close and comfortable around each other, and the fight shouldn't last long. If not, they are not your real friends, and you have to go on without them. I have tons of advice on how to make new friends, so just ask me if you want to know. Your 2nd eldest friend seems to be the main problem.  First of all, tell her to stop, and say how you don't like her bullying you. You must say what she is doing wrong, and how it makes you feel. If she doesn't care, tell her you're serious, and you hate what she is doing to you. If it continues, ignore what trash she is saying, and just simply walk away. Focus on other things that will help make you feel better. Remember, all she is is a person, and it's up to you to act appropriately.  Stay positive, and calm. Focus on other things, and if she continues, tell her that you can all be friends and you miss her. Go get another friend to stand up with you, and tell her that you will report to an adult if she won't stop. She may be your friend, but she deserves it. I told on my BFF when she was mean, so it's all okay now.  If all else fails, get a trusted adult, and hang out with nicer friends. Your other friends will learn from their mistakes. If not, warn them, and give them a sincere kindness note of how you miss being friends. Then, also give one to the bully.

    Yeah, @CyclonicBass the best option really is to find a girl with a quirky personality. Become friends with her. Possibly, over time, she'll grow close to you and accept a request to be with you. Hope it goes well!
