April 26, 2007

School's been going so smoothly lately that the last thing I expected to happen was to find out that my friend Melody is pregnant! I knew that she was getting serious with her boyfriend, but I had no clue she'd had sex with him. She's only 14 and she hasn't told anyone except her BF and a few of her friends. I think she's in complete shock.

I've never had to deal with information like this! Melody told me not to say a word to anyone, but I feel like she could use some help from someone a bit more qualified than me. I don't want to rat her out or anything, but this is such a crazy thing to deal with - she can't just pretend it's not happening and hope it goes away.

Melody's boyfriend, Sam, isn't taking things so well. He's 16 and the captain of the basketball team. I get that he's freaking out, but it's just as much his problem as it is hers. I definitely don't envy what they're going through. While I'm stressing about my biology project that's due next week, Melody and Sam are stressing about breaking this baby news to their parents! So crazy.

I guess I'll give Melody a bit of time to figure out her game plan before running to the first authority figure I can find to fill them in. I may talk to my mom about it. I think I can trust her to keep a secret... at least until Melody's ready to face this thing on her own. I just really think she could use someone more experienced to confide in.

I don't know - what do you guys think? Should I talk to someone about Melody or just let her sort it out on her own? Have any of you had to deal with someone you know getting pregnant? Any advice you have would be sooo helpful!

Peace Out,
Sindy

    I have had a bad week so far at school. this one girl named chloe twisted my friend kayla's Wrist. Both me and Kayla have tried everything from telling her to stop, telling the teachers, EVERYTHING!! I have tried not talking to Chloe since she STEALS Kayla away from me. :(  I do not what High schools and middle schools do now, but, what happens if another student injures another? Do they get expulsion or suspension or What??

    Uh okay, so I feel kind of stupid writing this here but I have nowhere else to go to about this. (I'm sorry if this is long). I just really need help with my life as a whole. Basically, I have extremely bad anxiety. It's gotten to the point where I cannot speak. At all. Every time I try to speak, I can never manage more than a few words before I clam up and start to cry. It feels like my IQ drops whenever someone tries to converse with me. I can't go into public either. The last time I did, my back and palms started sweating, my mouth went dry and I couldn't look up from the floor. And this wasn't even to a party or something, this was just the shopping centre. My mood is also extremely low. I feel both emotionally and physically drained which makes it hard to function sometimes. Some days I don't even have the motivation to get out of bed. I am sad 24/7. It is the most awful feeling in the world. Nothing interests me any more and I am so close to crying all the time, I dont know what to do. Sometimes I feel like dying, but death is my biggest fear so I'm not sure if I could be considered suicidal. I am not sure if it is depression because I don't have access to a doctor who can check. More than anything, though, I just want to stop being sad My parents seem to take all of this personally for some reason. They think I am purposely being rude or ignoring them. This is not true, obviously. But I can't tell them that because, like I said, I can barely speak. They keep trying to get me help for THE WRONG THINGS and haven't even thought of getting me help for anxiety. It was the therapist who first suggested that I should get help for anxiety and low mood but my parents still won't even think about getting me help for that and keep trying the wrong things. ~~~ It doesn't help that my mother barely cares about me very much at all. I'm really sorry but this bit is gonna sound like I am whining. But put basically, I have no clothes, no education (she pulled me out of school 2 years ago), and am stuck in what is basically isolation. I have asked her multiple times for clothes but she never buys me any and continues to buy tons for herself. (Or at least tried to when I could speak a bit better, haha, I haven't done since my anxiety got worse). But this means I have to about in the same un-ironed and sometimes unwashed outfit every day and it's gross, really. And since I cannot go to school anymore I have absolutely no friends. None. I do not even have friends online anymore. This makes my mood even worse and I am so ######## lonely. I tried making online friends for a while but I couldn't and since then my laptop broke (I am having to use the mobile site rn) so it's near impossible to make friends anymore. And on the topic of school, I have not had any sort of education in the 2 years I have been out of school. I do not even have a tutor. It's awful, and I would be going into Year 10 next year so I really need education soon since I only have two years left. :/ I feel dumb because of this since I have not learnt to do anything above a Year 7 level. I just don't know what to do anymore!! I really just want to fall asleep and sleep for however long it takes for me to wake up to a better period in my life. TL;DR: I am not at the best point in my life right now and my anxiety and mood only keep getting worse and I'm not sure what to do. :(
