    So lately, my health has been very bad. I always have been pretty healthy, but lately I’ve had bouts of sudden dizziness . I also have been feeling tired and my stomach constantly hurts. My mom has had to pick me up at school 4 times already because of this. I really want to tell my friends, but I am worried they won’t understand. What should I do?

      I hope you feel better soon! Those sound a little like the symptoms I have during anxiety attacks. You might want to check if you feel severely stressed and worried lately, and if you have nausea as well. it also could be allergies. you might want to talk with your doctor. i don’t see why your friends wouldn’t understand or at least sympathize with you, but you absolutely don’t have to tell them if you don’t want to. I hope you feel better soon! *huggles*

    • February 27, 2020 at 3:45 pm

      Do you have everything written down somewhere? Like a plan for each chapter? If not, make one. Then just look at it from an outsider’s point of view. Does this make sense? Well, what about this? Wouldn’t it be possible for the character to do this? etc.

      I understand how you feel about writing. Sometimes even the best ideas can seem incomplete or hard to develop.
      The best advice I can give you is to start writing. It’s easier to work on ideas for your story when you see it on paper, and you can always fill in details as you go.
      If you still aren’t ready to write, make an outline. Then ask yourself questions about the parts you aren’t sure about, like ‘What could have made the character do this?’ or ‘What reason could there be for this problem?’
      Also, if you’re worried about plot holes, maybe add some completely new ideas that would fill them in. Some new characters or plot twists that you hadn’t thought about before.

      Good luck with your fanfiction! I’m sure it will turn out great!

        Thanks guys. 😊 This weekend I’ll put some outlines and read my chapters over to make sure it’s good, and write the next chapter❤️

    • March 2, 2020 at 7:13 pm

      It helps me to look up writing tips online and to ask for a beta reader/peer reviewer. You can also read your work out loud to see if it makes sense – you’re more likely to catch mistakes that way. You can also try reading your story with the mindset of a reader, although you’re more likely to be overly critical of yourself. I’m sure it’s wonderful! *huggles*

    Oof I’m back on the hug page again 😛 And hey, look at the time, it’s midnight again (I really ought to be homeworking but I need a break) 😛 But at least I’m in a much better mood than last time.

    Anyway I’ve shoved myself back into the deep end of questioning every aspect of my identity, as I occasionally do 😛

    Andddddddddd I think I might be demiromantic. (A demiromantic is a type of grey-romantic who only experiences romantic attraction after developing an emotional connection beforehand.) I dunno. Maybe? The more I read about it, the more I feel like it fits.

    But I’m only in high school, terrible at understanding myself, and I dunno I just confuse myself sometimes. So could y’all give me a second opinion? :]

    As you all may have seen on a previous page, I have no understanding of love at first sight and very little tolerance for it, I think the idea of rushing into a relationship is absolutely idiotic and why would you do that?, and the only two people I have ever romantically liked I knew well before hand. (One of them was in 6th grade though and looking back I can’t tell if it was an actual thing or just me being confused). The friend I currently like *insert long sigh of annoyance* I have liked for about 2 years (RIP me) now, and I knew him very well before hand. I might even go as far as to call him my best friend at one point. I’ve never felt romantic feelings for someone I wasn’t friends with first (although again I am an easily confused highschooler who speaks “flame’s emotions” about as well as she speaks french).

    Anyway I’m going to go do homeowork now

      Gah, I understand how frustrating stuff like this can be! I’ve constantly been experimenting with labels to see what fits, and I’m still not sure about anything. I manage to be the L B G and T in LGBT. The best advice I can give is to try labels and see if they fit. But you don’t have to define who you are in a few words. Maybe you could also try to see what you feel, instead of trying to fit yourself into labels! I’m soft and squishy on the inside, so I can be your reassurance stuffed animal when you need it! *hugs*

      You cannot love someone properly if you do not know them as a person first.
      Even with love at first sight, the love will not last if based off of good looks alone.
      Mr. and Mrs. Bennet from Pride and Prejudice are a good example of what happens when you love looks, not the person.
      True love NEEDS a relationship to stand the tests of time and trials. It needs a connection to be built up.
      You are wise in that matter Flamecloud.

      Don’t fret.
      You are still in Highschool.
      You don’t need to have everything figured out right now. This is YOUR time to grow into the best version of yourself.
      MY best advice is concentrate on making connections and learning to be the best version of yourself.
      Be friends with people, enjoy learning, and focus what you can do now.

      This advice has worked with me, hopefully it will work for you.

I’m sorry I horrible at this but if you need more advice or need support, it’s okay to rant about all your problems on the hug page! HUGS!

    • March 2, 2020 at 7:15 pm

      the thing about your sexuality is is that it’s exactly what you want it to be. two people with the same label may not perfectly fit in with each others’ definitions of the sexuality – all that matters is that they identify with their label. labels are fluid and can be tweaked and specified to each individual person.

    ok so time for another installment of me ranting about something on the hug page (i swear it wont be as long as the last ones) idk nowadays i go through these phases every few months where i feel really blah all the time
    like i said at the end of my last comment on this page (it was a reply to birchy idk if anyone saw it besides her), ive been feeling lonely as heck lately. thats why the question of whether or not i should get discord was bugging me so much— itd be an easy way for me to reconnect with some old friends, yet as ive said the idea of getting something like discord at a time when im feeling really overwhelmed by internet social stuff doesnt sit right with me. but ive realized that while id still love to talk to those people again someday, what i really need right now is someone to talk to about some kind of shared interest in person yknow?? and i do have that with that friend ive been talking about (things are p good between me and her now btw) and sorta a couple other people, but not on a regular basis; none of them live in my neighborhood/school district
    i dont think it’s to blame for this problem, but the main thing preventing me from being able to try many of the normal methods for trying to make friends is something i barely talk about so even people on here who know me pretty well may not remember it— im homeschooled. i dont like talking about it bc people are always like “luckyyy” and “do you get to sleep in???” and idk i dont want it to be something that defines me or i need to be “proud” of or anything. but i am glad that i am, mostly bc the reason for it is that i live in a relatively large city where all the schools nearby have t o n s of kids and im prone to getting super stressed and overwhelmed in noisy crowd settings, esp if that crowd is composed of teens constantly teasing each other and parroting this week’s new hot tiktok meme or whatever
    i do need some interaction with people my age however, and thats where this weekly art class i take is supposed to come in; but unfortunately since most kids arent homeschooled through high school, theres only 2 other students in my class currently and theyre constantly chatting about subjects i cant relate to, mostly harry potter. it’s not that i feel left out and wish i could join them, i just feel really envious when i see them— not only bc they see each other on a regular basis, but also bc theyre both seem equally enthusiastic about hp or whatever theyre talking about at the moment. even when i get a chance to talk to someone about a shared fandom or whatever, i usually feel like i have to hide my excitement, bc the other person often doesnt seem as invested in it as i am i dont want to come across as an obsessed weirdo
    im mostly just venting, not really asking for advice, though if anyone can come up with something besides “join another group thing” then feel free to post it


    that's why i believe in youuu

    • Purple Dusk
      February 28, 2020 at 9:42 pm

      Yeah.
      Public Schoolers talk about stuff all the time I have no idea about.
      Mostly because I am homeschooled.

      That is where an wonderful thing called questions and answers come in. You can talk back and forth about your different lives. Because lets be honest, homeschooling IS different from public school. That has helped me.

      Just try talking to people. See if there is anything you have in common. I was talking with someone and somehow a Pokémon name popped up. Within three seconds we became friends over Pokémon. But that would not have happened at all if I never talked. I did not walk into that conversation trying to find a fellow Pokémon fan. I just went to be nice and make new friends.

      I am not asking you to join a another friend group or step out your comfort zone. If you can not go out, just be present in the moment you got. Because you never know what would happen. You could find whole new sides to people you knew for years just by being there!

      Homeschoolers unite!

      P.S.

      • February 29, 2020 at 7:33 pm

        thanks, but these people i’m talking about are also homeschooled. the reason i can’t participate in their conversations is because the things they talk about are usually fandoms i’m not in, jokes i don’t find funny, etc
        and i dont really have any opportunities to just go up and talk to people as that class is the only “group” thing i attend. honestly im not really sure i can do anything besides just wait and see if by some miracle, someone comes along


        that's why i believe in youuu

      Ugh I’m sorry <3 Sometimes I feel like this too but you shouldn't hide your excitement; it's what you like. And maybe the other person is doing the same. If you show how much you like something you really could get a friend that way.

      Yeah I'm also homeschooled and lol conversations centered around it are reeeallyy annoying. Yeah, I’m homeschooled, next!!!
      Sometimes I feel incredibly lonely because of being homeschooled, so I relate there—also as a person who sucks at socializing.

    Ooof can anybody please help me with finding the actual label for my sexuality?
    After thinking about it a lot I think that I’m only attracted to females currently, but it’s more than that.
    It’s also like… The idea of kissing? Kinda gross. The idea of getting married? Maybe. Moving in with somebody and just living together? Yep yep I’m in. Anything sexual? Eww no.
    So I think I might be an ace lesbian, but I can’t figure out if I’m aromantic… Since I do want to have a relationship with someone but idk.
    I also no for sure I don’t want children (nor to adopt ones) but guess I still have to babysit and all of that even tho I just don’t like little kids, since it’s a “practice for the future”. I don’t want kids and I don’t think they are that cute and I don’t think babysitting is that fun.

    Time for an update!❤️✨
    I’ve been taking my new medication for a few weeks now, and yesterday we went back to the psychiatrist to do a check up on how I’m doing. The results are actually pretty noticeable, and I feel happier and less anxious about little things. My parents also say that I seem more social and more like my old self. The medication seems to be working fairly well and I feel pretty good. The psychiatrist even said that if I keep improving like this, I might not need to do therapy.

    I just wanted to share this good news with you guys ❤️

    I’m kinda in a situation.
    So I’m gay, but I’m just not attracted to guys? Like, it’s not that I only like girls, it’s that I’m just not attracted to males/masculinity. So, in theory, I could be attracted to an agender or a more feminine/androgynous non-binary. That kinda makes me bi, but I just don’t feel comfortable with that label.
    Help.
    Also, I’m not just non-binary anymore. I also identify as gender fluid. I switch between mostly male and mostly female. Today I’m masculine.

    • February 29, 2020 at 4:59 am

      You could be polysexual, which is attracted to some genders but not all. Or attracted only to femininity, I forgot the name for that 😛 Or you could choose to not use labels at all. 🙂 Whatever you identify as, you’re valid <3

    at the time of writing this i’m incredibly shaken up so if this seems overdramatic or over the top then that will explain why

    but i incorrectly swallowed a pill and i might have been choking on it for a while. my throat’s really sore right now and the pill didn’t come up, so i don’t know if it went down my esophagus (food pipe) or into the area where my lungs are but it really hurts right now. my dad had to perform the heimlich maneuver on me, and it didn’t work. i hate the feeling so much and it feels like i might choke to death. i don’t even know if i even will live from this, it’s extremely painful and the fact that nothing else worked is scaring me. i’m really hoping that it was just a false alarm but i still feel a lot of pain in my throat and jaw, and i really don’t think i’ll be able to stomach eating anything tomorrow, assuming i even make it until then or manage fall asleep and wake up. i don’t want to die. it really feels like i might. i think i might have to go to the emergency room as well

    again i’m sorry if this seemed like too much but this just happened so as you can imagine i am terrified at the time of writing this

      Hey, I had the same thing happen to me yesterday, and it went away with a few big gulps of water. It wouldn’t come out no matter how hard I coughed, and my mom thought it was my being sick that made me cough that much. Low and behold, I took a big drink of water and it felt much better. If that doesn’t work, you might want to call a doctor, but if it does, great!
