I know there is this gigantic cultural and generational rift between me and my parents. I don't understand my parents sometimes. I hate the communication barrier between us. My parents didn't speak to me very much while growing up so my Cantonese vocabulary is limited. Thanks for the book recommendation. I think I've seen bits of the movie before, but I've never read the book.

Thanks for offering to help me with writing a letter, but I don't think it's needed right now. I also wouldn't know what to write.

Thanks for offering to talk to my Dad to convince him we're not a cult, but I don't think that's necessary either. I'm afraid him finding out that Babble is a support forum for people with mental health issues is not going to go well with my Dad. My dad thinks the Internet is full of crazy people and will never understand. My Mom thinks I should deny any and all problems I have no matter what. She told me that even if I were mentally retarded I should never ever admit that there is anything wrong with me. I don't think she would support me going to a mental health support site. She doesn't support me seeing a T or taking medication.

My Mom agreed that if I did well this semester I could go to the Babble Party. I would hope that she holds her end of the deal.

Thanks for saying you'll look after me in San Diego. That's sweet. I'll be OK though. I was OK in Toronto. Are you really thinking about going? If so, that's one more reason for me to do well this semester. :-)
