Hey another newb here - August 23rd 2017, 07:46 PM

Hey I'm Kalina and I'm 17 years old and going to be a Senior in High School starting September 5th. I am from the United States and I suppose I am here to help people out and also receive some help as I am also going through some issues in my life that are pretty horrible. (I will get to that later.) I enjoy listening to music like Lorde, Lana del Rey, and Marina and the Diamonds as well as hanging out with my friends and having fun.

So onto my life last January I just turned 17 and was half way through my Junior Year of High School and everything was going great. Then my older sister who had just recently turned 21 got the worst imaginable phone call anyone could get. It was from a hospital telling us to get to the hospital ASAP. My sister and I rushed as quickly as we could to the hospital but it was too late as both my parents had passed away from the injuries they sustained from the auto accident they were involved in. We were both devastated as you can imagine but that isn't where it stops. Shortly after this occurred and hardly anytime to grieve the State was pounding on our door and taking me away from my sister to a Foster home until further arrangements could be made. The State wanted me to live with my Grandparents who lived several States away from my sister and my Grandfather was extremely ill or my Aunt and Uncle who I was not close to at all who lived across the country which was out of the question. My sister who this fall was about to start her Senior year of college pretty much dropped everything, got a full time job, we sold my parents home, and my sister bought an apartment. The State seeing this finally approved that she was capable to be my guardian and 3 weeks ago I moved into the apartment with my sister where I belong. I will be starting my Senior Year of High School on September 5th while my sister still has her full time job and will be taking a few online college courses to complete her degree. So it has been a rough several months since January when this all occurred. I just can't believe how selfish the State can be and they are still watching us both like hawks to see one slip up and I will be pulled out again. I can't wait till I turn 18 and all of this can be over. At least the Foster placement that I was in for several months was pleasant and they were nice to me. Sorry for the long rant, but that is my recent life in a nutshell. I hope to chat and meet many of you on here in the near future.

Welcome to the site!

I am sorry to hear about everything that you are going through. I am sure all of that cannot be easy and I hope that utilizing the site will help in some way. Also, I hope that you have some support in place outside of the internet. If you are starting school you could, potentially, talk to the school psychologist if you are ever feeling overwhelmed by your grief and all the homework that might be required this year.

It sounds like you and your sister really love each other and I am glad that you have one another!

If you ever want to chat feel free to message me as well!

Welcome to TeenHelp, Kalina! I'm Oliver and I'm a Community Mentor around here.

I am so sorry that you have gone through all of this this, but I am glad to hear that you're back with your sister. I hope that continues to be a positive thing in your life. I'm happy to see you've reached out on the forums already! You may have already seen some of the different ways to receive help, but here is a page that lists all of them and the benefits/limitations of each depending on what you're looking for.

I saw that you like Harry Potter! It one of my favorite series. Do you have a favorite book or movie?

Anyhow, I am very happy you're here and I hope we're able to help you as much as we can. You are always welcome to send a message my way if you have any questions or just fancy a chat. I hope to keep seeing you around the site!
