Laura M., age 14, North Carolina

Talked to Courtney about what my mom said. She said, “Fine. Go to Cary! Leave me.” God, this is so hard. A chance for a transfer is what I’ve wanted all year. I asked if she’d be pissed if I went. She said “not pissed, upset.” She cried and cried. I wish I had as many tears as her. I needed to cry. Mom talked to the Apex counselor and she said to get a transfer I’d need a note from Dr. Silber. I’m depressed. I know what I need to do. Went to Eddie’s.
