    Why thank you ^_^ My mother did a very good job of instilling into me correct standards and courtesy, and hope to think that it didn't just go in one ear and out the other with me xD

    Lostlita, what's going on Hun? This isn't really about education and what's needed or not in life, you clearly have something going on that's really bothering you.
    I am a foster parent to teenagers, I've had about 30 now, private message if you like.

    Do you have a favorite teacher at school? Do you know your guidance counselor? How about a secretary at the school? Can you tell someone you like and trust who is an adult in the school that you need to talk to someone? If so, it's likely that it would be someone else you would speak to, so ask if that adult you like and trust can be there, betcha $10 they will be there.

    You just need to talk to someone about what's going on. I know things seem like they can't be fixed, but I promise you, everything at school can be fixed - the right people just need to know about it, and they can't read your mind.

    Talk to someone, or talk to me. And you will get the help you need. Promise.

    I disliked school immensely. I missed over a third of my high school years through migraines. I left as soon as I could at 15, and went straight to working with horses. Never had a migraine since leaving school!
    I did take several exams before I left, which was at least a year earlier than most. I did not need any qualifications to do what I wanted to do so, it never mattered. Things change and now nearly every job bar requires proof that the person has pieces of paper to say they can apply themselves.

    I did, four or five years after leaving school did I decide to go to night school to get further qualifications. No reason for doing so other than a personal challenge.

    Now, qualifications count for a lot.

    I think you should try your best to graduate high school.
    Are you a freshman? I am a sophomore this year and I looking back on my freshman year I can say that it is one of my worst years of high school. I did not like my freshman year at all - but sophomore year seems pretty fun so far.

    You don't have to go to a public school either - you can be home schooled or do it online. But if you are a freshman then just try your best to stick through everything that it throws at you and make it through freshman year, because Sophomore year will be better and it looks like it might be more fun too.

    Last year I had a ""friend"" who did all sorts of crap to me.
    This year I am not putting up with it and I am not playing her games. I will talk to her and be nice to her, but she isn't my friend and I don't trsut her with anything. It will be hard though because she is friends with my best friend - but That does not make her my friend.
    One of my favorite quotes is, "I am thankful for all the difficult people in my life, because they have shown me exactly who I don't want to be."
    For some reason this year I feel much more confident in everything and I am not as afraid to do things.

    But anyways, sticking with the point - try your best to get through high school because then at least you will have a better chance of getting a job. You don't have to go to college - in fact I would say don't go to college because then you have to pay back a bunch of money and you still might not be able to find your career job with your degrees.

    I agree with AlexS. You need to talk to someone. Take care of the anxiety and other things that are bothering you. Please finish school though. Sending prayers your way.

    price, school, work
