Am I just been paranoid? - July 20th 2011, 05:31 PM

My friend is ignoring me. Plain and simple. That's a fact. Only I'm not sure why. I CAN'T ask her because a. She's not at school so I won't see her b. She won't reply anyway and c. I'm not sure if I'm been paranoid or not.
You see I had this friend and this one teacher at school told this so called friend to ignore me because I quote "that's girl's a mess and not worth you're time" she was talking about me. Anyway my friend, let's call her A, has been talking to this teacher just like my other friend. I'm not sure if the teacher's told A to stop talking/texting... With me or whether I'm just been paranoid. I mean yes I told my friend tiny snippets but I have never mentioned I'm suicidal or anything to A so surely the teacher has no reason to say anything.
I guess I'm asking for any advice or opiniors. I know it's long so thanks for reading this. That means a lot.

Ok, first of all, that teacher is really being an ass. I'm sorry your friend hasn't been talking to you because of them.
I don't have any advice other than just give it time. If you can get ahold of your friend, talking to her would be the best thing to do. Unfortunately, it sounds like this isn't working. Also, try talking to a parent or school counselor, they might be able to give you better advice. Other than that, remember that if she really is your friend, she will come around, and if she isn't, she's not worth your time.
Also, you mentioned that your teacher said you're "a mess" and that you're suicidal. Clearly, the teacher is not at all understanding. There is nothing wrong with being a little messed up, we all are, and people should understand that, not shun it. If you are really suicidal, you need to talk to someone. Your life is extremely important--never lose sight of that.
As for your friend, I'm sorry I couldn't give you better advice. I'm willing to listen, though, so PM me if you want to talk.

What your teacher told your friend is highly unprofessional as well as inappropriate. As for your friend, if it were me, I would try and talk to the friend a few times. I would explain my side and hope that she would respond in such a way that she would talk to me again. Then I would give her her space. The more you pry and dig, the more she will want to pull away. If your friend wants to stop being your friend because of something a teacher said without talking to you first, then to me, she isn't a good friend. If I were her, I wouldn't be so willing to give up a friendship. That said, you never know that that's the reason why she hasn't been talking to you. Maybe she is going through something herself, or is busy. But you can never know for sure unless she tells you. Give it time, I'm sure she will come around.
