Did I do something wrong? Maybe she’s more interested in what Kianna has to tell her now. Maybe I've gotten boring, but the bottom line is I need her now more than ever. I don’t think I can get through this without a real friend by my side. What should I do? ~Tia

October 22, 2019 It feels like it’s been a minute since I’ve been here. Not much has changed, but now I at least have something to get off my chest. About two days ago, I told Lexi how I felt, you know, not like a girl. All she said was, “What do you mean? You wanna be a boy?” I told her I didn’t know what I wanted; I just knew how I felt, and that’s all I could explain. I didn’t tell her about the depression and anxiety part because I thought it’d be too much for her to digest all at once. I thought she might at least ask why I felt that way, or what I felt like, or how she could help, but she just said, “Wow, that’s kinda weird.”
