I don't know what to say... - November 1st 2009, 01:25 AM

I've started avoiding my friends. Not completely avoiding them, really, but just not being around as much. Most days during lunch I sit alone in a hallway. I'm not going to the Halloween party tonight. Stuff like that. It's avoiding them without raising too much suspicion.

I'm scared that if I'm around then they'll notice something and get worried about me. I hate to worry people. But I know that they worry anyway. They worry because I'm not there. And because when I am there sometimes it seems like I'd rather not be. I know they worry and yet I still don't come around all the time- part of me likes not being around. A part of me wants to be left alone.

I don't know what to say to them, though. I want to tell them what's going on and about things I'm feeling, but I don't feel like I know how to bring that up with a friend. I trust them and that's something that for me is amazing- I never trust people, yet I trust these friends. I just don't know how to talk about this stuff with somebody like that.

I'm trying to come up with a way to ask my Mom for help. That's why I sit alone in a hallway at lunch. I sit there and think about how I could break it to my Mom that I'd like to get help again. But I don't know how. I can't come up with the right way or wording it or anything. If anybody can think of a good way to bring this up with my Mom, that would be appreciated.

So I will find my fears and face them
I will cower like a dog
I will kick and scream
I will kneel and plead
I'll fight like hell to hide that I'm givin' up
