Dear "You should really get over it it was a year ago.",
Cancer doesn't stop traumatizing you once it's "gone" and PTSD can't tell time. Help me damnit!
Sincerely, I didn't go through hell to be haunted by it my whole life
Dear school officials,
Please don't make me choose between sitting in a special seat because of my disability... or sitting next to the classmate that stalked and abused me. That's really not a choice, unless you happen to be Faust.
Sincerely, The Valedictorian
I realize that teacher's college is nowhere near as stressful as full-time teaching. However, you need to realize that being sick, suffering from insomnia, and taking care of a mother with bone cancer, on top of going through teacher's college, is very stressful. But please, continue telling me how my stress level is "nothing."
Sincerely, Yes, this is the right career for me, no matter what you say.
Dear girl I like,
Why is it that you tell me that you have a crush on me, but when I ask you out, you reject me and tell me you're sorry but I'm the the most caring guy ever
Sincerely, a guy who really cares but can't wrap his head around this
Dear extended step-family,
You rejected me the day you told me, "She's not your real sister, she's just your half sister."
Sincerely, my step-dad is family, you are not
Please. Please, stop hitting on me. It's terrifying to be around you post rape.
Sincerely, Scared all the time
Dear strict teacher,
Please stop yelling. I know you think you need to yell in order for us to get our work done, but I have anxiety, and you have caused me to have numerous panic attacks.
Sincerely, your student who can't breathe normally in your class
Dear neighbour above me,
Please turn down your music. It is shaking everything in my apartment. Plus, some of us have important things to do, like study for exams.
Sincerely, one stressed out college student
Please stop asking me if I'm into girls. Just because I have a deep voice and I'm overweight does not mean I'm a lesbian. Stereotype much?
Sincerely, Your most definitely straight daughter.
Telling me that "moping around all depressed isn't going to help" is not helping me.
Sincerely, a girl with severe depression
Dear parents who smoke in the house,
I respect your right to smoke, and I respect that it's Canada, but we do have a garage with a space heater.
Sincerely, 19 years at home may give me lung cancer.
Please refrain from yelling at me five minutes after my appointment to talk about my sever generalized anxiety disorder with my pyschologist.
Sincerely, has it even occurred to you WHY I'm seeing one in the first place?
I know we all make fun of each other, but when you make "dumb blonde" jokes about me, it hurts. I work hard to get good grades, and you don't. So stop!
Sincerely, the "stupid" one
Dear Tour Guide in Italy,
I know our group entirely consists of Americans, and I know we're supposed to stay with our tour guide at all times during the tour, but taking us to McDonalds for lunch is unacceptable.
Sincerely, Disappointed American Tourist in search of authentic Italian cuisine
