Sindy's Blog - August 31, 2006

August 31, 2006

Camp is officially winding down and I'll be headed back to California on Sunday. I can't believe how fast this summer has flown by. It really feels like it was just last week that I was freaking out about what I was going to pack and how I was going to battle bugs for eight weeks straight!

I honestly never imagined I was going to have this much fun. It's the first time I've really been away from home for this long (I've gone on short trips to visit Simon but I've never gone anywhere by myself where I didn't know anyone). I've met so many great friends who I'm looking forward to keeping in touch with through email and messenger and stuff. I think I might even plan to come back here next summer.

I know you guys are all probably wondering what my status with Connor is... Well, we both realize that while we like each other a lot, we live really far away from one another and it would just be too stressful to try and make anything really stick. But we are totally going to stay friends and he might even come out to California at some point. I'd love to go snowboarding this winter too, so maybe I can convince my mom to take a trip over to Colorado. (And if that doesn't work, I can always turn to my dad...).

Once I get home I'm only going to have a week to get all my stuff together before heading back to school! I still have to do some back-to-school clothes shopping and get all my school supplies. Hopefully my mom's already started to pick some of that stuff up for me! I honestly am so out of the loop about what the new things for fall are. I guess I could check out Kidzworld's back-to-school fashion guide.

What's on your back-to-school wish-list? What do you think the hottest trend is this season? I need all the help I can get.

Peace Out,
Sindy

    Dear Dish-It In The Forums

    Did something happen between you two in the past? If so, I feel like she might have some unresolved issues with you that you need to discuss with her. And, time doesn't always mean a lot. I've gotten closer to someone before compared to someone whom I had known for 8 years.

    Dear Dish-it,                          Me and my friend just started talking again, and it seems like she regrets it. She'll leave me for the people she has only known for a couple of months, when I've been friends with her for a year. Also, she gets annoyed with me, and I don't know what to do.

    I'll be honest, I don't think that it's very fair that you're placing so much blame on your mother. Cancer is very hard to heal in any animal or person. She may of been able to help one spot, but that doesn't mean that she was going to be able to heal the rest. There's a slim chance that they could of made it through, but it's probably for the best that she put him down. Cancer is a painful thing to go through for dogs and humans alike. It would of been worse to push it. As for the depression, I understand where you're coming from with it. It's a difficult thing to go through and it makes things hard to do. I've struggled with things in the past and sometimes still do, so take my word on this: Eat. What. You. Can. Don't starve yourself. Don't binge. Don't do anything. Keep eating. Your health matters too. You need to find things to do, like hobbies (drawing, reading, writing, ect.) and spend time with friends when you can. At least talk to your friends, don't push them away. They're there for you, even when they might not know how to be. Don't be ashamed to cry, it's perfectly fine too. It's a better alternative of getting things out than a lot of things you could be doing. Do not, under any circumstances, start cutting. Take it from someone who's dealt with it on a personal level in several ways, do not start it. It is not something you "won't get addicted too" and it will not be a "one time thing." Do not try it. Do not start it. Do not try to find "softer" alternatives to cutting. Self-harm is not a fixer, it does not help anything. It isn't something to be ashamed of. It's a personal issue along with mental illness. But it is a very big deal. "And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help?" There isn't always a place to help. Sometimes it won't do the things we wish it would.

    My dog, Loki, was old and had cancer. He was 14. My mom healed one of his cancer spots but not even a month later, she put him down. He had life in him. He played like a puppy. If she healed one spot, why couldnt she heal the rest? He could have lived right? He was like my little brother, I loved him like one. He was family. Every since he passed, Ive been depressed. Losing weight and not wanting to go out and hangout with friends. Me and my mom get into fights more. At some points, I hate her for what she did. I dont dare tell anyone about my depression and I cry every night until 3:30 am. I have considered cutting but I dont want anyone to judge me. Im not going to but I just want someone to understand what his loss did to my heart. Ive had him since i was a baby. He was my best friend. And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help? I was mad. Can anyone relate? Can someone help me? ( im not going to a therapist btw ) UGH WHAT DO I DO?!
