Lumpy oatmeal makes me crazy!
You are a good friend. I hope I have a friend like you when I need one.
Okay, I just read in the teen poetry section and came back here. I don't think I am supposed to post there.
Keagan and Zach,
You share a friendship that is very special. It might last the rest of your lives - and how nice if you live to a ripe old age, sitting in your rocking chairs, gumming potato chips, drinking beer and talking of your younger days. You might just make it, you guys.
I think you both have showed a lot of courage in expressing yourselves here in PiP. Keagan, it ain't fun to have your situation laid out for all of us to share - but many of us do care. I hated being a teenager. It truly sucked for me - but, I survived and am so damned glad that I did.
I hope that you are not a cutter. If you are, please, seek some help for that. It's not something that I understand, but I hate to think of you cutting on yourself. It sounds very lonely and destructive on that one body that you have. So many people that I know are struggling to stay alive right now. They would cry to think of you cutting something that they would cherish. Think about it, Keagan. Please.
I respect you both a great deal. I would have emailed you both and said this privately, but you don't have emails offered to us.
I wish you, Keagan and Zach, a long friendship and the ability to ride out this teen time you are in. If you haven't seen the movie, Miss Merry Sunshine (or whatever it is) try to watch it. The movie is not something you would probably seek out, but you might understand the teenage boy in that movie.
Anyway, enough - just know that I am thinking of you both.
