Help please. - February 5th 2013, 10:50 PM

For those who read my last post and helped me a bit with my cancer, thank you, but that's not why I'm posting. For the past week I have been getting yelled at for minor things.
Ex: I was on the computer when my father swings my door open as hard as he can. He yells at me to look at the time because it was after my bedtime (which is 11:00). And I look down and it says honestly says 11:01. So I apologize, but he continues to yell at me. He brings up the fact that he's the one dying (which is not true, he's been cancer free for a year) and that I need to stop with my "poor me" attitude, and it continues on for 10min. And by the end, his face is filled with complete anger. While mine is filled with tears, and then he slams my door behind himself. And I sit there with tears in my eyes.
This has about more than 7-8 times just this week. Everything I do is wrong. The way I talk. The way I do something. Everything. And if I stay out of their path completely, that's wrong also. I try to not develop any situations, I'll just go to my room and do whatever. But, they come to me. I just don't feel happy anymore. I can fake it at school, or with my friends... But I'm not.
I don't have much of an appetite anymore.
I don't sleep.
But... I do think. And the thoughts that come, seem rational.

Hey, there!

I'm so sorry about how your dad behaves towards you. I know how depressing it can feel being yelled at for the smallest things or nothing really. It's really unfair to you being treated this way. Have you asked your dad why he yells at you for these things? Or ask if something's bothering him?

It's unhealthy emotionally to ignore your problem and keep it inside when you're with friends, if you're having bad thoughts then it's really important to open up to someone like your friends or the school counselor, or maybe talk to your teacher. Support can go a long way and could definitely benefit you. Calling a hotline could be pretty helpful too.

Suicide is not the answer. It hurts not only you, but everyone around you. Remember that it won't always be like this. There's the future, you can experience life away from home and all the arguments and such. You can be who you wanna be, marry, have children, it's really awful to throw your life away. You do matter, even if you don't thinks so. Maybe doing something different could help you? Like maybe at school, join a club, play sports, do something extra? Hang out with friends at their house, play games. When you're at home, draw stuff to take your mind off things? Writing your feelings down in a journal can also help you express yourself.

Hope I helped a bit! You can PM/VM me anytime if you need to talk.

Stay Strong <3

Hey mate,

Don't think you'd remember me but if so hey again.

Okay, I'm sorry about the cancer firstly That isn't a great diagnosis (I'll read that thread soon). [oops, sorry, I had written on that one, sorry about that, my brain you know? Memory loss is sort of common in me right now...]

But, maybe your parents are still in shock, and when people are in shock, sometimes they get angry and take it out on somebody who may be the cause of their shock, don't take it to heart if this is so, if not, that is just cruel and you need to ignore what they say.

Those thoughts are not right, and suicide isn't something you want to resort to, you can live through this, even if it seems pointless.

Feel free to email me (JayShorrock911@gmail.com) or PM/VM me if you want to chat.

My mum did the same when I was diagnosed with the blood clot...

My blog is open to all, those whom are easily triggered avoid, it's a story about a girl and her life and how far she has come over the years. If you read it, I hope it inspires you to keep fighting and to NEVER give up!

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.
