To begin with, this is urgent and requires a quick response. Comments, thoughts, love, support, stories, whatever. Good morning or evening or day or night or afternoon ladies and gentlemen and whassup. My name is Hamed Khatiz and I am a sixteen year old student, writer, drummer and many more from Sydney.
When you have your concerns for someone, how do you address that and tell them there is help available?
I have concerns for my friend. What happened was, a few weeks ago, she took what some would consider "The Morning After Tablet" or emergency contraception. Last week she felt the effect. She was in extreme pain, she was losing a lot of period blood for lack of a better term and she was hsopitalised for it. All this happened in the middle of a school day
She is back at school and she had set off many warning signals that perhaps her emotional situation is not great. Physically she is back in shape and more, but emotionally, I am not so certain. I am just extremely worried that perhaps she might have a bit off trouble dealing with the emotional repercussions of even taking the medication. She kept the treatment a secret from her mother (or at least she seriously wanted to) and I feel she is under a lot of pressure.
I am scared for her.
So I arranged a time to meet up with her and begin speaking with her about her emotional situation. I am planning to tell her that
-The situation she is in can raise emotional concerns.
-I am concerned for her emotional health.
-Myself and the guys love her and are willing to help her.
-There are two professional counsellors at our school who have the knowledge to help her too.
What is the danger of talking to her myself? What should I do, because I have concerns and do not know how to help her? The meeting is tomorrow morning and I am so scared that if maybe I get this wrong then perhaps she will lose it. Perhaps she will feel extreme pressure and maybe even get pissed at me.
