Hey Chantelle,

I'm glad you've realized you need to be honest with your guidance counselor. You're right- in order to help us, people need to know exactly what is going on.

Although it seems like a daunting prospect, you could just blurt everything out. Try not to worry about it, then just tell her everything. That's always what I've done in the past- if I think too much about what I'm going to say or do, I 'chicken out' and end up telling them nothing. Remember that your guidance counselor isn't there to judge you- he or she is there to help you anyway they can. In order to do that, they need to know what's going on.

If you're really struggling to build up enough strength to say things face to face (it happens- don't stress about it! ) then you could write how you're feeling down on a piece of paper and give it to your guidance counselor. Then, you can answer any questions he or she has and go from there. Alternatively, you could show her a view of your blogs, or posts from this site- then you don't need to write anything new or worry about forgetting things.

I hope this has helped a little, good luck!


Take as long as you need.
