Thank you for your response and your kind words. I did try going to the counseling center, but for some strange reason involving the fact that it is summer and the fact that I am technically not a full-time student yet(it's only the summer program so far) they can't do anything for me...
...I don't understand it either.
Ironically my evening passed well, considering the fact that I couldn't stop crying several hours before. Maybe I'm bipolar? How can I tell?
Also, I think I could use some advice at this time, if only to just get through this month. Earlier I don't think I could have handled it but I'm at least feeling in control somewhat tonight.
Again, thanks so much for your caring and support. There are a ton of activities planned all the way through Saturday, but hopefully I'll be able to update sometime then.
I am so happy that you have decided to join us. I am sorry for what you are going through. I think that you do best when you ignore your brother. And try not to let him get to you. He has to be pretty miserable himself when he has to put others down in order to feel good. So he is really not a happy camper, though he might try to act like it.
Try not to take things out on yourself by breaking things or doors. You are only hurting yourself and it is making him happy. He got to you and that is his goal.
You can do this. Don't let him get you down. We are here for you. Keep posting.
