it was ok

Read in July, 2010

An interesting story ... a bit fractured and unrealistic. To have no adult believe Lisa needs help? To listen to her when she asks for help? Three friends have to look up psychological terminology and symptoms to try and help her themselves? Really? Maybe it's just disheartening to think that any adults could be like that ...

In any case, this reminded me of a lesser sort of piece of "I Never Promised You A Rose Garden" but only sort of.

super captain man A lot of adults I know have this idea that any sort of emotional disturbance that a teenager has is just because they are hormonally imbalanced , and that they're just going through what every person goes through in their teen years. A teenagers might be depressed or bipolar and their parents will just assume that they're moody. :\
