MOD MOD MOD PLEASE HELP!!
So I really need advice. I'm twelve. Lately, I've been very short tempered, and very standoffish from my family. Even when I'm laughing or telling jokes I feel like I'm fighting off being sad. I'm either doing that or pulling on my hair or blowing up at my family. It isn't like me. It makes me scared, because I feel like when i'm in my mad mode, i'm out of control of what I might do. I always feel like I'm fighting myself. I don't really do sports and i'm homeschooled. I feel depressed one moment, then the next im getting to be happy. I feel like I don't want myself to be happy. Like my family is out to get me. But I know there not. I get irritated at every little thing. Please help me!!

MOD MOD MOD! So A go into my academy this year. Academies are like groups of kids (from the same school) that are with each other. They are more likely to get classes together and can get one of the four (core class) teachers as there home room teacher. He was in mine last year and YAY got into mine this year. Sadly though I have NO classes with him. And now it looks like today he moved out of my P.E class. And we don't have an elective together. What do I do?
Maybe you could ask
him to sit with you and your friends at lunch or to hang out with him after
school. Even though you don’t have any classes together, you can still make
time to see each other and catch up! Having different classes will also give
you more stuff to talk about, too, so try to see the positive side of things!

I think I'm growing apart from my 3 best friends who go to my middle school. I keep getting emails from them, that say stuff like " here's a video we made without you" and they keep going to each other's houses and not inviting me. It makes me really sad, I have anxiety disorder, so I have a tendency to sweat the small stuff a lot, and this is really worrying me. I haven't seen them all summer, and I really think they don't like me anymore. What should I do? And I go to a tiny school, it's k-8 and it only has 300 people, about 60 of who will be in my grade. 20 out of those 60 are girls.there are a couple of people I have considered becoming friends with that are outside of my friend group, but I really don't know what to do? I go to school on September 4th, and this is driving me crazy, so please answer
Hey! I'm so sorry, what a stressful situation! The first thing you can do is stand up for yourself. It's completely mean of your friends to basically brag to you that they're excluding you. Tell them you want to talk to them and tell them that you get the message but that it's really hurtful. Say you want to be their friend but that they need to let you know if they're avoiding you so that you can start trying to meet new people. As to meeting new people, just pick up some context clues from what you know about the people you want to get to know. What do you know about them? what are their interests? do you have any classes together? From there you can introduce yourself besed on what you feel like you have in common, and your friendship can grow. I know this all sounds overwhelming, but to make yourself feel better just imagine what "future you" will think about all this. Will "future you" want you to stand up for yourself in this situation? HECK YEAH. Good luck! You'll do great!
