Dear Dish-It, I'm Getting Picked On

Dish-It serves up advice about school, bullying and depression.
Advice About Depression

Dear Dish-It,

I used to love going to school not too long ago until everyone at my school started acting stupid and rude. I'm sick of it! All I hear every day is people screaming, yelling, cursing and swearing. I can't take it anymore! Plus, I'm now getting picked on! I don't know what to do! I can't be home-schooled.

Dear BritBrit,

You know it's funny, school is really scary when you start, then it becomes really fun, and then it sometimes starts to suck again. It sounds like your school is particularly full of jerks and, if you're being bullied by some of them, that's definitely not cool. You're at a time when people are pretty much at their jerkiest. A lot of people in middle school and high school are making bad decisions when it comes to their behavior towards others, either cuz they're immature or cuz they fall to peer pressure and insecurity. If the bullying is really bad, talk to a teacher, school counselor, or your parents. Reporting the bullies doesn't make you a crybaby - it makes you mature. Their meanness could really, really do damage to you - or the next person they "attack."

Have you tried to seek out other people who might feel the same as you? I bet that not everyone at your school is stupid, rude and yelling all the time. Why don't you try joining an after-school activity, either at school or at your local community center? Meeting new people, making new friends, and trying out new activities will help you deal with your frustrations, as well as help you open up and share your feelings with others rather than keep 'em bottled up inside.

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 .

B-who-u-r-and-SING
My best friend and I were really close before and hung out all the time, we were both in musicals and both got smaller parts, and if one of us got a bigger part, it was her. Then she took voice lessons with an amazing voice teacher and got a little better, she took lessons for about two weeks and then I decided to take lessons too. After about three weeks people were saying that I was an amazing singer and all of the sudden my maybe-best-friend hardly talks to me. She always seems really sad. (Keep in mind that my friend can't sing well) I don't know if she is jealous or what, and please don't think that i'm conceited by thinking she might be jealous I am just wondering. Please help!

I almost always get along with my cousin but sometimes I burst. my grandma always somehow finds out what I want and gives it my cousin and if my parents are around she treats us equally and that is another thing that makes me mad is she acts like the best grandma in front of my parents but the second they are gone she is a different person
