[ mood | Frustrated ]

Hey y'all,
I've edited this post to remove specific info about my problem. I had some issues with the co-prefects. But we're trying to work it out now. We'll see what happens. Sorry I had to delete comments that gave specific info, but Bren requested I try to be quiet and civil about my qualms. If you didn't see the original post and want to know what's going on, you can take it up with me personally via e-mail. Below is my e-mail address, each letter spelled phonetically to avoid spammers...

i hope this isn't at a bad time but i honestly don't know anymore.

basically, since october or something, my sister & i are giving eachother the cold shoulder, for something she blamed me on doing. and on that night, she came down and yelled at me while i was playing the piano and yelled at me taht she hated me/ruined her project. i didn't honestly but i said SORRY anyways, and y'know, i had to cry.

and now it's may. wow, seven months? i don't know. i wanted to say SORRY, like, again, but it's harder than i made it all seem. i tried writing letters and stuff, but they never were sent & i just found the box i kept them when i was cleaning my room and i broke down and cried.

and over these seven months or so, i think she changed so much, or it may have been just me. we used to be so alike before, and now we're so different. she's more into the get-the-boys & make-up business while i'm still here, just doing nothing, really. she's been in this situation before; with my mom, with my dad, and with my older brother (which will never stop) and i used to think that it would never happen between us because we were CLOSE and it would be stupid. almost illegal.

and ironically, i thought that again on that night.

my parents & i don't really get along and they don't really understand any emotional situations, so i can't go to them. i don't want to go to my friends because i already burden them too much & i cry too much in front of them.

ohwow, would you look at this? i'm crying right now.
i was hoping this could be more anonymous, but i couldn't find anything regarding the option.

Lonely [16 Mar 2005|12:26pm]

Hey there Healers!  Hope I didn't catch you napping or anything.  Not that I'd blame you, after all it's been rather quiet round here for the past few months.  Anyway, wake up sleepyheads!  I have a question/problem!  :-) 

About a year and a half ago I graduated from college and moved from my hometown in the Washington, DC area to Atlanta, GA.  I didn't know anyone here except the person I moved down to live with.  She had an extra room to rent.  Since then, I've had major difficulty making friends.  I haven't found anybody I really connect with.  I knew it was going to be harder without the structure of school to shunt people with similar interests together, but I still wasn't prepared for it.  I have lots of friends all over the nation/world but virtually no-one here in town beyond the two wonderful people I live with.  I get very lonely.  So does anybody have any good ideas about how to meet cool people?  I have a couple things that I'm trying out, and a few others that I've already tried and given up on.  But I don't want to talk about them yet because I don't want them to bias anybody's responses.  Thoughts?

Oh, btw, I'm interested in getting involved with the Hospital Wing myself, either as a healer or in some other capacity.  Keep me posted as the reorganization continues.

A quick question [26 Nov 2004|05:50pm]

Hello! I'm Alysa, a Gryffindor, and I was wondering if I could be a Healer. I would love to help people and enjoy giving advice. I can't think of much else that makes me happier than knowing I've positivley contributed to someone's life.

Is it possible for me to be a healer or are all the positions full?

Alysa, Gryffindor

Ok, this problem is not completely related to me, though parts of situation are similar.

The main issue is that a good friend of mine who is gay has extremely unforgiving parents. They have run the whole ultimatum and guilt trip on how she could do this too them and it's evil and blah, blah etc.

Well at the moment she can't talk to them at all and there is a possibility that her Dad may turn up and try and humiliate her in front of her house mates and may even try and force her home.

I know that I can't get involved apart from being a supportive shoulder to cry on and listen to her when she needs to talk, but if her dad really did try something I couldn't stand by and do nothing.

Physically I wouldn't want a confrontation, I'm a black belt in karate so I'm not exactly afraid of a fight, but I've never had to actually use it on someone and i've no idea what he might be like. I've already said she can hide out at my place if she needs to as I live round the corner and he doesn't know me.

In the end this may not ever become an issue, but I want to protect my friend.

This kind of led into a little problem of my own.

In September this year I confessed a very close friend of mine that I had had feelings for her. I had kept this secret from her for about 3 years. She was rather more angry that I kept a secret this big from her in the first place rather than the actual content and since I told her I felt a lot better.

She has made it clear that she doesn't fancy me at all which is fine, but she has been a little undecided on her sexuality and there have been occasions when mixed signals and confusion have given me glimpses of hope there might one day be something.

I don't want to hold out hope for something that will never be, and I am free to look for othe people, so to speak and I have done. The problem, is that I can't quite let go of the fantasy of what might be still, and the thought that maybe she will turn around one day and give that answer I'd like now, but by then I may have gotten over it for real.

If our timing could miss each other so badly it would be so sad. There is nothing more frustrating and destructive as hope for the wrong thing, but so hard to let go of.

This is partly just getting things off my chest, but the recent talks I've had with my friend of parental problems has stirred my feelings up a bit again. Generally I don't like to think about it and I distract myself at all opportunity. It was working too until this other issue came up.

I want to let go, but I'm think I'm still afraid of losing the chance at something I don't think I'm ever going to have.

Yes I KNOW I'm supposed to be a healer... but even we have problems :) [25 Oct 2004|07:29pm]


OK, yes I'm a healer, and yes I have a problem that's sort of friendship/love related I guess.


Cut for excessive amounts of drama. Those with no toleration for drama don't clickCollapse )

So I was the bigger person and backed out of the conversation, but i see her every day and she was my best friend, so I'm not sure how to deal with this.  Help!

My problem is kinda stress/life related. You can delete it if it's not appropriate.

I'm in my second year of university, I'm an English major, and after that I'm going to try for my education degree. I really wanna be a teacher; it's my life plan pretty much.

So my problem centers on two things: I'm lazy and I spend alot of money.

I'm usually too laid back for school. Isn't everyone? Well, I haven't picked up a book or studied or writen a paper yet this year. This hasn't been a big problem yet, because I haven't been assigned much this year.

My biggest problem is that I don't go to class. I just can't bring myself to do it; I stay in bed, or I stay home and play my guitar, or I go out with friends. This has gotten so bad, to the point that I arrived at my class on Tuesday morning for the first time in a few weeks only to find out that it was my midterm. I wish I had the initiative to go to class, and to do well.

The thing is, I need to get pretty good marks in order to get into the eduation program, and at the rate I'm going, it's not happening. This messes up my entire future, but even that doesn't seem to motivate me.

So many people, myself included, would be dissapointed in me if I don't do well at school.

Secondly, I don't have alot of money, nor does my family, but we've always been happy and never really needed alot. I don't have a job, I just go to school. I have 13 thousand dollar a year student loan, but my theory is that I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

I get money sometimes, from grandparents and the likes, and I spend it. For example, I got a hundred dollars on Monday. It's thursday, and that money is gone. I have nothing to show for it.

In March I will be getting the second half of my student loan; enough to pay my tuition. I also have a 3 thousand dollar bursary that I don't have to pay back. I'm going to Cuba with most of that money for March break. I got the same amount last year, and had it all spent in months.

There is also the trip to New York City that I want to take soon. I want to go see the musical Wicked before January 2nd. I want this more than alot of things, and I'm trying to make it happen. However, this takes money and time and it takes people who are willing to come with. None of which I can seem to get my hands on.

So where am I going with all this? I have no idea, but basically, I've dug myself into the worst hole I could ever imagine myself in; I'm broke, paying alot of money every year for an education that I'm pissing down the drain, messing up my future and my present life. I'd go to a councellor, but they'd tell me to get off my ass and get to work with school and go to class, and to budget my money. I tell these things to myself everyday. I can not understand why it doesn't sink in.

My problem is that none of these problems I've outlined are the least bit horrible, and they are all self caused. I hate myself for whining, and I hate the person that I've become here. Lazy, uneducated, uncaring, depressed and whiney.

If you have any advice for me whatsoever, I would majorly appreciate it. Mostly I just need to get it out of my system, and I have to figure stuff out.

-Screams- [07 Oct 2004|07:18pm]

Hello. My name's Christine and I need some wisdom on my little problem that's going to make my brain implode on impact any second now with further thought.

* - Changed name.

Mary* and I have been friends for the past 11 years, since I was six years old. We met in the later semester of kingergarten and I have many fond memories of us playing together and the like. You could call us best friends, as we were always together up until fourth grade when she moved away to another city, fifteen minutes away. Though it was quite a distance to hassle our parents to drive to, we saw each every two months - not bad for a pretty distant relationship amoung friends. However, as the years passed and we entered highschool, we grew more distant and farther away from each other.

Just this weekend, I saw her again. She drives now, so she can go back to our neighborhood full of nostalgia, talk about good times, have some fun, and drive away until our next meeting. Imagine my surprise when everything just about falls apart.

She smokes now, kiddies. And does drugs: crack and pot and weed. She drinks too, liquor.

I don't know how to approach this problem. It's a problem, alright. One, its dangerous for her health as she's only 17 now. She started a year ago, when she was 16. Two, its dangerous for my health because having an autoimmune disease makes one very vulnerable to outside toxins and dangers. Three, its damaged my view of her as a friend.

I don't even regard her as a friend anymore. I can't. She does too many bad things and its a danger to my health - to everyone's, if you think about it in the bigger perspective. It's just plain BAD.

I want to break it down to her. I want to help her. But she's already crossed my judgement on just how impaired she is when it comes to smoking.

On Friday, she went to a gas station and bought ciggarettes. The cashier didn't card her since she appeared over 20, and she would have just gone to a different place to get them if they didn't give it to her. She starts smoking. [STRIKE ONE]

Saturday; She picks me up and my friend. (Mind you, she's endangering my friends.) She starts smoking. AND CONTINUES TO DO SO FOR 5+ HOURS. [STRIKE TWO]

I made up my mind slightly; the next time she smokes, its STRIKE THREE.

Just... how can I break it to her? How can I help her? I've offered to get her nicotine patches, to break away before it gets really bad and she took it as a joke. She smokes half a pack a day. That's ten ciggarettes in one day. Help, please?

Hey all you wonderful people, you!

Okay, I'm baack for some more help.

I have had this friend since fourth grade, and I'm in grade ten now, so thats ... what? Seven years of friendship? And recently I've gotten this huuge crush on him. And I think he likes me ... but I'm not sure. and I'm way to shy to ask him if he does or ask him out. Mostly 'cause I'm terrified that would make things weird between us if he said no, and that would make me miserable.

Can someone give me a suggestion on how to find out? I'm not friends with any of his "close" friends, so I cannot ask them.

So, as some of you may remember from my sorting application, my father is a jerk of the highest order. I can personally live my life happily without seeing him ever again, which is fairly easy since he lives in New York and we all live in Texas (my mother and sister in Fort Worth, and me in Waco).

Well, dad's coming to town in a couple weeks. He asked my sister to tell me so that I could be in Fort Worth when he arrives. Now, 1) I haven't heard from him since I moved into my apartment 3 months ago, 2) he used my sister as a middleman to get ahold of me and 3) Mom did the paperwork and now has proof that he took money out of my college fund and is doing the same to Christyn's.

If I go up there, I know I'll end up saying everything that's been on my mind since junior high and he'll probably retaliate against me by hurting my sister (he knows we're close and WILL use her or her college education as leverage). And if I don't, he'll yell at Christyn the entire time he's here and possibly still feel he need to retaliate.

Not to mention the fact that I have the worst suspicion that this little trip is going to be the means for him to tell Christyn that "he no longer has the money to support her college education." Which is the biggest lie I've ever heard, but of course if he continues to pay her tuition like the divorce courts ordered, then he certainly won't have the money to go on his little weekend jaunts to Italy with his girlfriend. (/sarcasm) If he pulls this crap and I'm there, I KNOW I'll do something that I'll regret later from a jail cell (he IS the sort of creep that would call the cops on his own daughter and make up a phony charge just to prove a point). And if I'm not there, I don't know how Christyn would handle it, and my mom would end up being the one in the jail cell because she'd lose it and murder the jerk once and for all.

Any suggestions?

Wow you guys! Thanks SO much for the help..

And well...

I was all set to ignore him, I SWEAR! I really was. So I went for a walk to get my mind off of Scott...and I happen to end up going by his house. I just shrugged it off and continued walking. Then I passed his house again, and again, and again. And I'm trying to get him out of my head.

Then who do I see?

Nope, not Scott but...his mom! I'm like "HEY!" because I know her kinda, and she's like "Hi!" So I told her how I was going for a walk, and she was doing the same. And then she's like...

"Karli and Scott are in the pool, why don't you go in and say hi?"

I'm like "O___________O"

Well it's like a public pool since they live in a townhouse, so I go and kinda stand out of the gate and say hi to Karli. Then what happens? I look over at Scott (who's standing their in his swimming suit looking amazingly hot) and he says HI TO ME. WTF?! I THOUGHT HE HATED ME!!!

I say hi back and everything, and stand there like an idiot because I can't figure out how to get the gate open. And Karli's not really helping me (I'm getting the vibe she doesn't like me -.-) so I just say "Alright I'll see you later okay? Bye!" And walk off.

And I go to my house, and half way there I think about what an effing idiot I am. There has to be SOME way to get that stupid gate open, or I could have just asked her. jfdkls;ajfd!!! So I go home, eat something, and come back. I go and shove the stupid gate open and guess what?


And so I come home and he's online! And I IMed him thinking he'll probably ignore me again but he said hi back! So now we KIND of talked...I said a bunch of stuff and he's not replying ;/ Maybe he's doing something or maybe he's ignoring me and he felt like he had to say hi because we saw each other at the pool or maybe my IM didn't go through v.v;

I don't know. I'm so confused.

Now I'm getting the feeling like he's not ignoring me at all, he's just not an Instant Messenging person, yanno? Maybe if I talked to him in school...we're both in Drama club so I can talk to him then but...

Should I go with my original plan and forget him?

Hey guys... [06 Sep 2004|03:30pm]

[ mood | crappy ]

Hey guys, I have a problem v.v; And I'm hoping you all can help!

Well, there's a guy. (There's always a guy, isn't there?) He goes to my highschool, he's a senior while I'm a sophomore, he was crowned Prom Prince last year, he's the captain of the varsity football team, on the varsity baseball team, star of every school play, amazingly hot and...

He lives on my street.

I mean normally I wouldn't even think I could have a chance with this guy, but he lives on my street! I'm friends with his younger sister, who's a freshman now!

He's also REALLY nice, I mean so I've heard. He's sweet to absolutley everyone, he cares, and he's just so perfect.

But the problem? I think he hates me -.- I tried talking to him online a couple of times, and the third time I IMed him, I got no reply back. Depressing as hell, I assure you. I IMed him a fourth time, and I got no reply back. Even more depressing.

I found his Xanga, suscribed, and left a comment. He always replies back to comments, but he didn't to mine. I know he's just ignoring me, because he probably thinks I'm a loser sophomore.

I want to forget him and look at other guys my age, but it's HARD! What should I do...not give up, or forget him?

Hi Healers!

I'm having guy troubles. :(

I find that I'm oddly attracted to the weirdest things, and lately I'm having trouble focusing on one guy (which is very unlike me).

I'm obsessed with one guy's hair...

I'm in love with another one's humor/sense of dress (but he's a senior, and I'm a sophmore)...

One isn't even supposed to date til after highschool...

One has been my best friend since 7th grade...

One wouldn't make a good boyfriend in the logical sense, but is really cool to be around

and more!!!

How in the world do I get myself out of this one???

This was posted by rhipowered but she didn't know where to post it, so I re-posted it for her.

Lo there...I have a problem for the healers.

My paternal grandmother has terminal brain cancer...this is a development we've only heard about in the past month. She only has a year or so to live. The issue is that my father called me today and basically insisted that I come home within the next two months to see her before her mind goes (she's OK for a few months before she'll start losing her faculties).

I love my grandmother, but we're not overly close; I'm at school a thousand miles away from home, myself, and I'm about to be thrown into the fray, so there's no way I could travel until October. I also feel really bad about the fact that I really don't WANT to go home until December. I like where I am right now. However, I know if I don't go see her, I'll feel really awful about it. Mostly, I don't want to have to spend a day traveling each way, and then have to deal with my family (who I don't have the best rapport with).

Generally speaking, I have problems with guilt. What should I do? I'm scheduled to go home in December next, and I don't have to pay for the plane fare. I just don't want to spend my fall break week in Wisconsin, but here with friends, which is so selfish of me.

I also am sending my grandmother a card and I don't know what exactly to say yet. What do you say to a person who is going to die? 'Get well soon' is not going to cut it...I'm just not that kind of person. Any suggestions would be great.
