It’s been a while hasn’t it?
I guess I should start at the beginning.
My AP Art History class took a trip up to Dallas to visit the Nasher Sculpture Center and the Dallas Museum of Fine Art. I thoroughly enjoyed the sculpture center, and even though this guy:
…wasn’t our docent I still found everything highly interesting. Now at the Dallas Museum… oh man. Our docent led tour was only supposed to be 40 minutes, but it lasted over an hour and a half and we had only seen FIVE pieces of art. FIVE. Finally for the last 30 minutes we got to roam around on our own, but I really wished I hadn’t wasted an hour and a half of my time to “study” (we honestly knew more about the art than our docent) FIVE pieces of art.

- Not having a lot of AP work in English (I'll have to read Macbeth over Thanksgiving though)

I think one of my friends may be bipolar or schizophrenic. And I’m not jumping to conclusions or anything. Year after year I’ve watched her slip deeper and deeper into her mental state and I’m honestly worried about her.
She’s been diagnosed with anxiety problems, but I think it’s more than that. I have anxiety, and whenever I get really bad I shut down and want to cry. I don’t want anyone to talk to me, touch me, or even look at me. She gets argumentative. She can go from loving a person and thinking that they’re awesome to loathing them because they merely expressed worry about her. She thinks that people are constantly out to get her and she can’t handle everyday situations like stress, deadlines, minor confrontations, or multitasking. She’s not empathetic towards others, which makes them feel frustrated towards her.
I don’t know what to do. I don’t want her to hate me, but I also want her to get help. Maybe I should suggest she talk to a therapist/psychiatrist so she could vent to someone other than her friends? Would that be pushing it?
Because when she’s happy she’s great, but once she gets upset she gets violent and has uncontrollable anger. I’m worried about her.
