Tell an Adult
Tell an adult that you trust
Just because you sneeze, it does not mean that you have a cold (maybe you are in a dusty room) and just because you have experienced one of the changes listed above, it does not mean that you have psychosis (maybe you dress differently to keep up with the new fashion). You need to tell someone about these experiences and get more information to find out what is going on. So who do you trust? Who can you tell?
· Who listens when I speak?
· Who is easy to talk to?
· Who has helped me before?
· Who stays calm when there is a problem?
Make sure that at least one of the people you tell is an adult that can link you up with help when you need it and are ready to receive it. A lot of times, that adult is a parent, but it can also be a grandparent, foster parent, a friend’s parent, an older brother or sister, an aunt or uncle, a neighbor, a teacher, or a pastor – any adult that you can trust to listen and help.
