Hello and I am sorry your in a bad place. I know you are aware of how much we want to help you stay in a safe place.
Sometimes we get stressed out when everything happens all at once. When this happens, you should take a deep breath and try to find something to do for a few minutes to get your mind off of the problem. You could get some fresh air, listen to some music, or do an activity that will give you a fresh perspective on things.
I won't tell you to go see your counselor as you know that. Also you did a very honerable job is taking care of your friend but she is right, you have to put you first.
Learn to take it one day at a time. Instead of worrying about how you will get through the rest of the week or coming month, try to focus on today. Each day can provide us with different opportunities to learn new things and that includes learning how to deal with your problems. You will do well in school................you always have and you will continue too.
Instead of focusing on doom, stay in the moment. Give yourself breathing space. Consider what matters to you. Establish a few manageable goals, then take small steps toward achieving them.

I think it is so cool that you went to the game. It is good for you to get out and do things. And I also think it was awesome that you helped that girl. That was so sweet of you. There are so many people that just don't want to get involved or just plain don't take notice of situations like that. They are so wrapped up with themselves that they don't care about anything else. But you were there for her and I am sure that she really appreciated to have you help her. Kudos to you Tennis!!!
It is good that you are talking to your counselor on Monday. Just pretend that you are talking to one of us and maybe it will be easier. I hope that she isn't so busy like she was last year. Is it the same person?
I can imagine that you would be good in art class. That not only is a form of expression, but also a good release of emotions. I am glad that you like it. Maybe one day you could take a picture of some of your work and put it on the forum so that we can see it. I bet it is really awesome.
It sounds like you are feeling a little better, I hope so. Things can get so overwhelming, especially during your senior year. Just try to take things as they come. Don't dwell on things that you have no control over. They have a way of working things out. Keep up the good work of getting out with your friends. You need that release. And you deserve to have some fun. You work so hard at school.
I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.
Good Morning, I am so proud of you for stopping to help a stranger and your right, people will gawk but not all people will stop as their life is so important and it is all about them. That was a huge positive for you TeNNiS.
Just what is normal for one person is different for another. So remember you are a stong individual. Express youself in your paintings. How I wish I had a talent that I could really get into.
I am sorry your night was not so good but remember we are hear to help you in any way we can.
