Dear Dish-It, He's Been Smoking and Taking Drugs

Dear Dish-It.

There's a boy I've known for a long time and I see him like two times a year. That's because he lives in Orlando and I live in Ontario. Well, we used to be like GF/BF, but all of a sudden he's going down hill. I think he's been taking drugs and smoking. He used to go to a school for that sorta stuff, but he ran away. Even now that he does this stuff, my heart still thumps and I still think of him every night... and still I have a crush on him! I haven't seen him in, like, three years! I don't know why I feel this way! Can you help?
Bye bye boyfriend?

Dear Bye bye boyfriend?,

Well, you certainly got it right... it's bye bye to this boyfriend. Sounds to me like this boy, hottie or not, is big trouble. You don't need to get yourself all worked up over this bad boy crush. And girl, we are only talkin' about a crush, cuz this most definitely is not love. I mean, you haven't even seen this boy in three years! This is a crush gone crazy! You need to look a whole lot closer to home for someone new who you can actually hang with. Your O-Town bad boy is more of a fantasy than anything else. I bet you hardly know him now, and he's clearly changed for the worse. If you think this boy just needed some love and support, he should get it from his momma! It's not your job to right his goin' all wrong. Sometimes it's hard to decide to stop thinkin' and crushin' on someone, but that's what ya gotta do in this case. Good luck.

So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinking '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 .

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?!
