Dear Straight Talk: I’m 15 and have a stepsister who I’m somewhat close to. We go to different schools but share my room every other weekend. She is super depressed every since her boyfriend dumped her for another girl. She carries some extra weight and says the girl he dumped her for is really tiny and goes out of her way to be mean to her, saying rude things about her body and making school hell.
She hardly came out of our room or ate anything all weekend when she was here. Also, I saw her open diary and it said: “The only way is to kill myself and I know how to do it.” She saw me read it and told me she didn’t mean it, she was just “venting” and not to tell anyone because it would just create drama when all she wants to do is get over this. She really did seem to be just venting. But what if she’s not? I don’t know what to do! — Scared in Ohio
