Thinking of you, i know its tough balancing school with feeling awful- healing vibes your way and better days ahead-
Take care and keep posting (((((((Christie))))))))
P.S You matter now. You have always mattered in the past and you will matter in the future. One day at a time.
Karen is right, truly Christie i dont feel its about you personally, unfortunately we live in a litigious society and teachers must protect themselves from any teacher/minor situations. Too many teachers have been burned over the years by people accusing them of stuff and so its both a natural defence mechanism to keep your work/professional life very separate from your personal life.
Its not that she doesnt like you or think less of you- I would seriously consider that she is adhering to the legal advice we teachers are given. I know you feel hurt and rejected, and its hard not to blur the lines as a teacher who gets on well with their students so for me personally i have a blanket ban on any social networking sites- FB, Myspace, Twitter- that stuff is kept away from my students. Doesnt mean I dont like them or think they are stupid- cos I dont. Just protecting myself as society dictates.
I hope this clarifies things for you- you honestly sound like such an awesome person- be well
Yes, you do matter. And tell me what "normal" is? Everyone is unique! If we were all alike, how boring. There are great people here that always listen.........what a wonderful support group. I hope today finds you feelings a bit better about things.
Before this keeps going on I wanted to make a few points...
1) I have lots of teachers as friends on FB...high school teachers and college professors. 2) She has added other students who were in my class3) She made it very clear she didnt want to associate with me because of my sexuality.
She emailed me back about it and so we talked a little. I emailed back explaining some things to her. Im not really mad at her, I really do respect and admire her very much and she probably the nicest person Ive ever met. She also agreed to even sit down with me and talk about it and why she disagrees etc.
I would never use any past teachers as a way to help me with school now. I do like to show my appreciation for them. I wanted to tell her how good I was going and how my professors are impressed with my English abilities. I only wanted to thank her.
And one of you is right, I already have a favorite college professor and I do chat with her on FB occasionally about my school work... or I give her support and encouragement because her husband is away in Iraq so she gets down alot.
But anyways, I just want to put that whole FB thing behind me. Its not even important...
I have been so down lately. I just sit with my ear plugs in 24/7.... I have a huge headache that just keeps getting worse each day. And today something is very wrong. Im burning up, even though its cold out, Im sweating, I feel shaky.. and I just overall feel like something is very wrong... And Im not sure why. I took my meds yesterday like I was supposed to.. I also finally got my essay done, at the last moment.
Im ot sure whats going on with me anymore. Not even I can explain how I feel to myself. The nurse called this morning and I have an appt next week with her, and my pdoc is also going to attend so we can all talk. He wants to put me on a stimulant......
But anyways, I need to get to class....if I dont get up and walk out cause I feel so bad... Luckily its English so I can talk to my professor about whats going on... Thanks for everything
