    My name is Emily. I need help with my stress! It is causing me to be a different person! Im starting to get very angry at little things, cry at nothing, be shy, and even talk back to my mom. Two things are bothering me most:
    1) My crush who I have know FOREVER (really) is starting to ignore me. He has been my best friend forever, but now he is starting to hang out with other people (girls) and is starting to totally forget about me.

    2)School. I hate it! I hate the students most of all! There is this girl named Dy`Mon who daily cusses at me, calls me named, and even threats me.

    Is it normal for things like this to majorly bother someone? Thanks!!! And please give me some advice on how to become happy again!

    Nobody wants to be constantly bullied. I'm assuming you're in high school? If I'm wrong, please let me know. If so, I can tell you I'm glad I'm long but out of high school myself. In spite of my own depression problems, I can honestly say I'm glad I'm an adult and don't have to be back at a time in my life that was sometimes detrimental to my self-esteem.

    I hope you can find a way to deal with that girl teasing you all the time. I'd perhaps want to tell a teacher or counselor about her. I wouldn't want to have to live with something like that.

    Hello Emily,

    I would like to start by saying 2 things

    1) I am not a therapist, just someone who likes to try to help others in order to hopefully manage my own mental health.

    2) I am very proud of you for identifying that your stress is interfering with your well being.

    That being said, depending on your age, it could be very "normal" for these things to be bothering you. I would personally suggest that you speak to this friend of yours and let him know that his distance towards you is bothering you, it is quite possible that he doesn't even realize the effect that it is having on you.

    As for the bully, I would have to agree with Julie in saying "report the behaviour to a teacher/counsellor/ adult that you trust at school." I know that it is never fun to be "the snitch", but it is equally as unpleasant to be the victem of a bully.

    I really hope that this has helped at least a little bit and I hope things destress for you soon. Maybe you could try some meditation to help with your stress levels. Aside from that, all I can really say is, "keep on keeping on."

    I wish you the best of luck with your situation.
