Hi im a 15 year old teen. Unlike other teens i tend to enjoy my teenage life. Besides that. My mother is a drug addict. I tend to not bother but its hurting me. at times when she doesnt have any drugs , she gets grumpy and REALLy angry that she spills all her tension on me and i become the blame. she hurts me until i got bruises all over my body and she blames my boyfriend.Sometimes she just sleeps and eats.Which i dont really mind. Then once she has the drugs. She will scream at me . she will not eat she will just do her job. But when she has no job left to do. she comes to me and screams at me. Just a few hours ago she wanted to kill me with a friggin samurai sword! i really need help and im not making up stories. I wish i could tell my dad but she wouldnt want to admit.. And she has her ways to make it look like im lying. I am jealous to see other teens have a healthy yet NORMAL mother. I cannot stand the pain and pressure anymore. My tears wont help. Please tell me help me!
Sweetheart, your dad is not facing what is going on. He has to know. You want to help mom??? Talk to a teacher, priest or someone in authority. Even if you know a police officer tell him/her. First this will help her and I know this is what you want. It will help the family bond together to fight this horrible diease that has invaded your family. Also it will help you too. You are 15 years old. I can tell you love your family, but if no one will stand up in the family, it is your responsibility. I will make you a friend and you can contact me if you need any emotional support.
i am a mother and had used drugs for a long time. I have three children and days that i had no drugs my kids suffered not physically but emotionally. You have to tell some one. It will not ever get better.unless she gets off the drug. You are so strong for dealing woth this, pull some more strength out and tell someone thats not in the family, you would be very suprised that they will believe you intil you prove them wrong. good luck and god bless.
It helps if you tell a counselor or a teacher that you trust. If you handle this alone, it may get worse. Don't worry in telling them. They will help you in dealing with that. It's also best if you get away from your mom when she's into it, so that she won't make you her punching bag.
I bet you are worried that you will get your mum in trouble if you tell anyone, but its important for your own safety, and your mothers, that you tell someone you trust, maybe a teacher or counsellor? It is not ok for you to be treated in this way, you are so young and should be able to live a normal teenage life. Just like when you are sick and you need someone like a doctor to make you better, your mum needs someone to help her get better, her drug addiction is an illness that she has lost control of, and she needs help. If you can have the courage to speak up, things can start to get better.
You need to go to your school nurse or counselor and report this as well as the bruses. You do not have protect anyone but yourself. You can always call 911 and let them know that your mother is on drugs and has threated your life. If you are tellg the truth with no bull you need to be afraid and the only way to protect to is to report this to some one even children and youth Please share this infor with one or all of the above. Your Mom Needs help so all you will be doing is keeping you safe and hopefully getting your Mom the help she needs. Good Luck I hope this helps and you choose to do something about this. Unfortunately without violating your personal information on this site I do not (maybe I am wrong ) can not report this for you. TAKE YOUR SELF OUT OF THIS SITUATION FAST. Unfortunately you are too young to go live with a friend without paental advice but it does not mean that the parents of a friend who are aware of your wellbeing can not report this to the authorities.
Honey I am so sorry I feel helpless in not being able to do something myself. Please keep me updated Good Luck and God Bless Barbles You can alsocall your family doctor minister priest.
Hi, sweetie. I am incredibly sorry to hear what is going on with you. I, too, am the child of an alcoholic, and am now a recovering addict, myself. I remember being in your situation when I was a child, I am now 27. I agree with everyone, you should contact a close family member, a teacher/counselor at school, or a clergyman. Also, ALATEEN is a wonderful program for children of addicts/alcoholics. The program has been a wonderful addition to my life as well as attending AA metings. Good luck to you and God Bless. http://www.al-anon.alateen.org/alateen
