Exclamation Certain problems - August 17th 2017, 06:27 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

If this is in the wrong forum, I apologize. I just joined recently. Anyway, I've been having a very difficult time lately. My depression has increased significantly and I'm not sure what to do. Unfortunately, I live with my mother who is a drug addict. Her main thing is meth, but she takes a bunch of of other stuff too. Seeing her so addicted to all this stuff and getting arrested constantly just saddens me. I love her, but she doesn't want help. I know it's her own fault, too. Things have just gotten so bad. She chooses her addiction over me, and I feel like she doesn't care. She always leaves me hanging also. I remember when I turned 15 (last year) she was supposed to pick me up. This was the day of my birthday. I waited around 4 hours. She never showed up. In fact, a police officer did. This isn't my only issue. I understand that I've done stupid things like underage drinking, smoking, getting tattoos, etc to get her attention. She really doesn't care. I've come very close to suicide, and even attempted it once. My mom didn't help me, my neighbor did. I wish she cared about me, and killing myself seems like an easy way out. She's actually told me that if I committed suicide, she wouldn't care. I know she didn't mean this, but it hurts me. She's never apologized for all the terrible things she's done or said.

Hey I'm sorry about what happening to you, I have suffer from depression for years bc of my abusive father but I wanted to let you know that your not alone and you should not kill yourself ( I have attempted many times worse choice ever) . I know its hard having a parent who is a drug addict and does not seem to care about you, but I'm glad you have joined teenhelp and reach out. I wanted to know if you ever talked to a counselor or any other family member who can help out if you do have a family member or even your neighbor you can try to ask for advice on what to do. I'm not a expert at things like this but I just wanted to let you know that you can reach out and not suffer in silence anymore. please stay strong

I can't really talk to anyone. We moved away so my old neighbor isn't around.

Hello John,
I am so glad that you have joined teenhelp and you have done a wonderful job saying what is going on. I know it's not always easy to say what's going on or to ask for help. I want you to be very proud of yourself for posting.
I am truly sorry that you're struggling right now with all of this. With your mom doing drugs, anyway you can talk with someone about this? Your school counselor? Do you have any really close friends that you trust a lot, can you ask them if you can stay with them or have your friend's parents help you out with us. You shouldn't be alone with this. Try having your friends help you if you can, and go to the school counselor, they are licensed in so many different areas they can help you a lot. Also try writing down in a journal or on paper and just write everything out. Get your feelings out all of the hurt, anger, sadness and anything else you're feeling. You have that down on the paper and then you can rip the paper into a lot of pieces and throw it in the garbage and it will help you some because of everything that you are holding onto and feeling it's now gone on that paper. I hope that you will be okay. And please keep posting whenever you need help or anything.
Lots of Hugs
Emma
