    Hi @ellie2000

    Thank you for feeling comfortable enough to share your personal story with The Mix. 

    From what you have said, it appears as though the topics you have brought up are quite sensitive.
    I hope you are feeling okay? I hope you have someone you can confide in?

    I'd suggest talking to your friends and family further, only if you felt this was the best way forward. 
    If I were in your position, I would probably ask my friends for their advice (as you have already told them) and see which decision they thought was best. I would then consider which options would best help me in this situation.

    I hope you make a decision you are happy with. 
    Feel free to message me directly, if you like.

    Hey @ellie2000

    Well done for being so brave and opening up about this. I can imagine that telling your friends about what happened to you was daunting - how do you feel now that you've told them? 

    It sounds like your parents are already concerned about you, and could be ready to hear about what's happened from you. @Tee A is spot on. If you're comfortable with it, talking to your parents could be the next step forward. It's entirely up to you how much or how little you share with them. 

    In the meantime, you can always talk to someone anonymously to get a better idea of how to approach telling the people around you when you're ready. You can contact Childline on 0800 1111, or find other means of support (1-2-1 chat etc.) here

    I hope you're doing okay, Ellie <3

    Sorry to hear you are struggling @ellie2000, it sounds like you don't feel like you can confide in people. Sometimes talking to people we know well can be really difficult, especially when it is about something personal. I'm really glad talking to people here makes you feel better :) 

    About your Spanish homework, I'm not sure since I don't know what it is you have to do.  You could always talk about where you live but avoid mentioning anything specific? For example, you could describe the way your house is rather than an address or location.

    I'm not sure about your Spanish homework @ellie2000. If you are unsure you could always send your teacher an email or speak to them next time you see them?
