I don't know how to ask my mom for a shrink.... i really want someone to talk to that can help me. My mom and i are kinda close but we never talk about stuff like that and im afraid that if i ask her, she'll just laugh at me and tell me to stop being redictulous </font color>
Good question. This is the first step...
Being a parent, I would not laugh if one my kids came up and asked me.... I would sit down and ask what is going on with them and see if I could help....
At that point, tell your Mom you really need to talk to someone who's outside of the family unit and not bias.... Just about today's teen stuff! Just ask your mom to talk and ask her employer's insurance representative... In most cases....Most family mental health issues and teen age counseling and therapy are covered under most insurance policies for free or with just a small co-pay.
Don't be afraid... Just ask but do it directly and be serious.
I have the same problem...
I don't care how you do it, you need to get help. This has been dragging on for a while, and it's not getting any better. I surprised that your mom hasn't noticed that something is going on, but you need to talk to her. You need to talk to someone.
You need to talk to your mom, but if you can't, you need to talk to a school counselor or some adult. Just go do it.
Is this Catalina, rather than Samantha? (Did you know that, in The Name of the Game Was Murder, fifteen-year-old Samantha visited her uncle on Catalina Island?)

being a teen myself and growing up i found it really hard 2 find sum1 2 talk 2 but now i know i can talk to my mum as myself a mum to be i would love my child to be able to know i am there for him or her,and they are able to come to me when ever they need help or anything because theres nothing more you would want for your children but to be happy and safe and for that child/teen to be able to have that trust with their parents so i say talk to ur mum you will proberly learn alot from her....coz ur mum's not just a mum she's also a woman and a friend and who will understand you better.... </font color>
live life to the fullest bcause its not always going to be around!!!
do you have an advisor at school? because if you do consider talking to them. I have one, he's one of my favorite people ever and I can tell him almost anything, and the conversation will be confidencial and he's awesomely nice (and a math and science teacher, and seeing as those are my fav. classes) and understanding, really knowing what teens have gone through, having gone through the same things himself..
