  • Something is going on with my dads friend (who lives up North in Washington) He basically feels like all this health stuff is wrong with him and has a TON of anxiety that makes it feel much worse than it is (that’s at least what my dad thinks) so he hasn’t worked in like 6 months so they have to sell their house. So this guy is super depressed, staying in his house all day reading about what could be wrong with him which is making him even more worried. I don’t know this guy too well, but I really worried about him, and the thing is he is too scared to go to the hospital and refuses to take any medication. He calls my dad like three times a day, and right now my dad is talking to his wife, so I’m extra worried but obviously there’s nothing I can do.
    • That sounds scary. I hope he's able to get help and get well again, and I'm sending happy thoughts! <3
      • ^^
  • mature warning:
    i didnt go to the guy i knew's funeral
    my dad said the family wouldn't have wanted me at the funeral anyways
    i know what he meant, but it still really hurt
    i wish i could stop thinking about it
    • That sounds really hard. I’ve been in a situation like that before when my dad’s stepdad died and it would have been really hard to get me to the funeral so I didn’t go. I felt pretty bad, but I did the best I could which was all anyone could do. Sorry if I’m making this about me, but the point is that however you feel is fine, but you did the best you can. <33
    • I’m so sorry, Tino. I know that’s completely insufficient, and I can’t imagine how you’re feeling, but I hope you begin to heal and feel better soon.
      • ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I'm sorry. I wish I knew something better to say. <3 *hugs*
    • I'm sorry for your loss. Losing someone is a terrible feeling. We're here for you! <3
    • Tino, I'm so sorry. I don't know any of the details, but all your feelings around it are totally okay to be feeling. <3 I wish I could help more.

Spoiler Troubles

My friend has been spoiling the ends to many of my favorite books. I makes me feel very frustrated and I don't like it. I talked to her and she said to stop being so sensitive. I don't know what to do.  - Anonymous  That does sound like a bit of a predicament. Your friend should really listen to your wishes and respect them. Spoilers are never fun, and it’s very unkind of her to continually disrespect you like that. You aren’t being too sensitive at all; it’s perfectly reasonable that they…

Feeling Overwhelmed

“Sometimes I feel overwhelmed, I don't know why, and I tell myself a lie that's not true. Like, I don't have any friends even though I clearly do. I don't sleep well anymore because I am constantly worried or hurt. Can anyone relate or help?” -Anonymous I definitely know what’s its like to feel overwhelmed- even to feel like I don’t have friends when I do, it's a rough feeling :( It’s like a negative voice in your mind that tries to use your spiraling emotions against you and try to make you…
