Sleep is a vital part of human health. If you are not sleeping properly, everything suffers. This may be one of the problems which is causing the lathergy. Regarding the homework... have you considered getting a chalkboard or something where you can write all the stuff that needs to be done and then erase it when you have done it? That way, you would be able to keep better track of what is done. Have you considered talking to someone other than your teacher? Perhaps there is another teacher who knows you that you could talk to?
Always remember that we will be here if you need to vent
I understand what you mean when you say talking to a councillor sounds stupid. When I started seeing mine, I had the same feeling. But then I realised that she was being paid to listen to people like me sounding stupid so I thought i'd make her earn her money! lol. Anything you say cannot leave that room except under exception circumstances (You would have to check your state law) so you have nothing to lose really. Go to her and spend an hour sounding stupid, and see how you feel... if you dont feel that bad, you know you can do it again!
Take the bull by the horns!
P.S I dont think what you say sounds stupid at all
Thanks to everyone who posted. I'm actually sleeping now, however, what started it was odd. I actually passed out and sprained my wrist from the fall. The good thing is that I can sleep now! YAY!
I don't want to go see a counselor that costs money. I hate it when people spend money on me. I was thinking about my school counselor, but i don't thin kI can trust them to keep things from "leaving the room". I know that they need to contact my parents about me, but then it just gets rid of that "privacy". I just don't know. I think that now that i'm sleeping, i don't really see a need to tell my mom now. I don't know what i'd do if i had never found this site! you guys are awesome!
Im really glad that you are sleeping now froggy! (Im sorry about the wrist, but at least some good came of it!) I dont know about the law in US schools regarding patient confidentiality... perhaps one of the US mods/members might be better placed to advise about that issue. I think you ought to talk to someone though.
