Harold H.

Dear Dr. Woodchuck, 

     I don't want to be around anyone anymore. My friends want to spend time with me but I just don't feel like it. I don't understand what's going on...

Signed,

Harold H.

Dear Harold,

     Sometimes we want to be by ourselves after having an argument with a friend or if someone is being mean or bullying us. If that's not the case and you notice you have been wanting to be alone for some time, it might be helpful to meet with a therapist. Feeling down stinks, but you don't have to keep the sadness inside. 

 

Dear Dr. Woodchuck,

     The sadness is not going away. Is this how it's always going to be?

Signed,

Harold H.

Dear Harold,

     I'm sorry the sadness is not going away- it's really, really hard to feel sad all the time. It might be helpful to start by figuring out where you feel the sadness in your body. This worksheet well help you locate your sadness.

 

Dear Dr. Woodchuck, 

     Coach Nurrfle told us to pick a partner in P.E. today and nobody wanted to be my partner. I don't blame them. I'm not that great in sports, or anything, really...

Signed,

Harold H.

Dear Harold,

     Sometimes when we are feeling really sad, we are really hard on ourselves. Take it easy, Harold. You won't be sad forever. And when the sadness goes down, you will start to enjoy doing things again.
