I Want to Help My Friend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 160 People

    My friend is so depressed,

    and I can't do anything about it. We're both going through the same ****. I promised him to stay up with him till he feels better. I'm worried it won't get better. I really want to help him and be there for him but it's impossible.

    My friend is really upset at the moment.

    I don't know what to say to him, I'm not really good at talking to people. In short, he had this girlfriend that he really liked. She was nice and they were great together. Then she cheated on him only one week into the relationship. He broke up with her as soon as he found...

    She's going through a tough time.

    Her boyfriend is 21 and she is 22. He is second guessing their relationship because she does not know if she wants kids and he already knows that he wants them. The thing is is that she can change her mind in the future about it (if you noticed, we are still kids learning to...

    I think my best friend is anorexic/bulimic.

    She never eats very much at school. It makes me upset. Please help me. She always is "sick" puking from "bad food" and she already told me she thinks she is a fatass.

    He's sliding off the track.

    Pretty soon I won't be able to help him at all. I am not going to hang out with him if he continues to act the way he is. Im going to have to have a talk with him and I think he is going to get upset.
