I love how no one seems to noticed how hopeless I feel. I've gotten to a point where the only emotion I manage to show is anger. It all started I few years ago I started living with my birth mom and was the happiest and most osocial person I've ever been in my life. After a year My aunt,who raised me, talked me into moving back in with her by threatening suicide. She always been alcoholic who rather buy beer than pay bills. she also refused to buy food all summer because she said I eat too much. She ended up losing our house and we ending up moving into apartments in a horrible area. These past two years have been absolutely miserable. When I tell her about how depressing this is for me. She tells me that I can be happy when I turn eighteen or she'll go out and buy me a game to shut me up for a few days. We're gotten into a lot of fights because she gets drunk and decides she needs to hit me because I'm ruining her life. I've never been the type to let someone beat on me. So our fights always end up her having black eyes. It's rare for me leave my room anymore. I don't want to go school anymore I just want to sleep all day.
Oh my goodness, that sounds just awful. I really don't have any good advice for you, except maybe to start with al-anon. They might even have a program for teens. You shouldn't have to deal with this on your own.

If you got nothing to bring to the table - don't even bother sitting down.
I have been in situations like this but it was the other way around. My mom likes to pop pills and live off of the government. I moved. That is the only solution. She is a grown women and she makes her own mistakes. She should feel bad with dragging you down with her. I heard a saying. You either deal with the situation or you cut it out your life. You can love family at arms length and that is what probably needs to be done. You have to let ppl like that fall so that they can get up on their own.

How old are you sweetie?

Can you not move back in with your birth mother? You said you were much happier living with her, no?

And please seek professional help. Al-anon should be able to help.

I'm so sorry you're going through this. Being 16 is hard enough, without being abused by the person who should be protecting you. It is SO important that you understand that this is abuse, and that you have rights. Can you talk to a counselor at school? They should be able to hook you up with some services, and also give you advice if you are worried about your aunt harming herself.

Let us know how you're doing, and be nice to yourself - you deserve WAY better than this!

Hey I was just thinking about you. Have you talked to your school counselor? I really hope your not afraid to. I'm sure you are confused and don't know what to do but I promise you you HAVE to get out of that situation! You can come live with me if you want a safe haven. I mean it. I'm in Columbus ohio and I will come and get you. What state are you in?

That said, I'm pretty sure there's some legal implications here

Dreams, you are stronger than you know, and I am sorry you are going through this. 16 is such a tender age. What you are going though is wrong. Talk to an adult that you trust. Friends parent, counsellor, teacher, anyone. There is no excuse for this but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I absolutely promise you this. I will be sending you a PM.

I'm so sorry you're feeling this way but when you feel like nobody cares or notices how depressed you are, I hope you can remember a lot of us on here who care and are thinking about you. You shouldn't be coping with all of these emotions alone, especially at 16.

Is there a school psychologist on campus you can talk to? When I was a sophomore in high school, I started seeing ours when my dad became ill. She was quite young and didn't offer any groundbreaking advice, but it helped having somebody neutral to talk to.

We care, I hope you get that message loud and clear. (((((Big hugs)))))
