: I have a friend with lots of issues. Her father left her when she was young and never bothers with her. He never calls her. She hasn't spoke to him in 3 years.
: She has half brothers and sisters she doesn't even know about. She is very emotional and cries over everything, and is always depressed and angry. One time she said something rude, and i wouldn't listen so she came over and kicked me. Her mother aloways yells at her and she can't talk to her about anything. It is easy to see shes angry because when you she tells you something and you disagree she gets nasty. She tried to brake her arm ad thumb so she wouldn't have to write in school. I still find that mentally sick.
: Her mother keeps saying she's getting her psycologist. Do you think my friends mentally sick? Please respond and tell me what do do for my bud and what's wrong with her!
You friend should talk to a school counsellor as soon as possible. This is her ONLY option at the moment. Her problems (anger, violent behavior) will not go away just like that. She needs professional attention. Tell her about it and suggest she talks to a counsellor sooner rather than later.
As for yourself, make sure you do not say anything that makes her angry in the meantime. Stay away from her when she gets angry. And make sure your parents know what happened between you two. Your friend has a problem which can be fixed but do not let her problems become yours as you will not be able to help her overcome it. Tell her that you will be there for her but she has to think about talking to a counsellor.
