    Yeah. I understand that exams can be really stressful at the best of times, but so much worse when you're not doing ok MH wise :console:

    Have you tried talking to someone above this teacher if you're getting bullied?

    That sucks.

    Bullying can be absolute hell, I hate it when teachers don't take it seriously, it can lead to huge problems later in life. You got my sympathy here, I hope you manage to stick it out until June. :hugs:

    It's the weirdest feeling of being really happy and really sad at the same time. I really like her, but I guess there are many other girls out there...yeah, this is going to take a while to get over

    :console: it's always tough yeah, but im sure you will find someone else, I used to think I'd never find anyone when I got turned down by a girl but then I met my girlfriend and we've been together 2 years now so it's definitely possible to find love! (I tend to think if a guy like me can find it anyone can haha!)

    stay strong and maybe do something to take your mind off how you feel a bit? :hugs:

    I really need advice on a difficult situation I'm experiencing. Spoilered for ED talk

    Spoiler:
    Show
    One of my best friends has anorexia nervosa. This is definite and not just speculation. She admitted in the past to having problems with food and having counselling, but she is now completely in denial again. She keeps organising meet-ups with our friendship group and then flaking out with half-baked excuses, which she insists are true So we haven't seen her for ages but whenever we see her, we are shocked by what we see in front of us

    What is the best thing I can do to support my anorexic friend? As you've probably all figured, I'm not very good at handling EDs I just want to be the best friend I can be to her but I don't know how to do that if she won't see me and barely talks to me/replies to messages

    For anyone who has anorexia or a similar ED, what would you find most helpful for your friends to do?
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I wouldn't say I have an ED but my eating probably isn't normal.

    Really I'd just emphasise that you're there for her, don't comment on how much/little she's eating and avoid talking about diets/ways to lose weight in front of her. They're the things that trigger me most I think.

    Sorry if that wasn't helpful

    I'm sure I will...I hope I will. After so many years of not liking someone, it feels good to like someone Although I forgot what rejection felt like :lol: I'm happy for ya man

    I'll read my book and sleep the night away most likely! I got a week left at Uni before Easter, I'm sure my friends will help boost me up again...hopefully

    plenty more fish in the sea and all that! yeah, I went through like a year at one stage where I didn't have a crush, it does feel very strange when you first do again! rejection is always awful, but hopefully is just a bump on the road to finding the person who says they like you back!

    fair enough, sleep then seeing friends sounds like a good plan to me
