Anonymous said: So I met a guy recently and we had instant chemistry. We have a ton of things in common, including major depression and self harm. I'm worried that us being together isn't going to be healthy... Do you think it will work, or is it a bad idea? We're both trying to recover btw.
I think it would be good for you to be together. For one, you can help each other recover and be positive influences towards each other. Also, you’ll be happier having someone with you & someone who knows what you’re going through. You’ll be able to tell each other things & know you’ll keep it between you because you feel the same. I definitely think it will work, and it’s worth the shot.

Well, just try to make different friends in different classes. They don’t all have to be close friends, just someone to talk to in each class, someone there for you so you don’t feel alone. I know that involves a lot of talking with different people which may cause anxiety but remember what I said, make a positive experience out of it, you’ll be making new friends, and who knows, you may end up closer than you expected.

I'm hoping she's just taking a long nap, but she didn't tell me and I don't know what to do.
First thing to do, don’t panic. If you worry yourself over it, the situation may get way more out of hand than it needs to be, she could in fact just be taking a nap or has something on the go. Continue to try to get in touch with her and try to contact others who may be able to get in touch with her. Just stay positive, I’m sure she’s alright. Also, try to talk to her parents or someone who she is close with, they should know what is going on as well and they probably know best what is going on with her.
