I need Someone - November 2nd 2009, 09:47 PM

I have been emotionally and verbally abused by my father for a couple years now and i really am scared. Im always afraid of whats going to happen to me and I never seem to do the right thing. It's such a problome that it's drivin me to self harming and scuicidle thoughts. I've been having trouble with freinds latly and I cant reach my best freind because we go to different schools.

The only reason I'm on this forum is because I feel like I cant find anyone to talk to. My life is constently sorrunded by thoughts of scuicide and well, I just need someone. I would feel embaressed if anyone found out about this so if anybody is willing to lend an ear, that would be nice. The one freind I have told hasn't helped at all. He thinks that I'm lying and he's telling everyone that I'm lying.

Hey Tara.

Well, I believe you. And I'm so sorry that your dad is treating you like this. It's not okay for any parent to treat their child like this, and you definitely don't deserve it. To be honest, I can't say I really know too much about how good child services are in Canada, but we do have a specific section of Canadian hotlines in our Hotlines thread which can be found here. (: So, if you have time to give that a look through and see if there's any you find want to call, these lines are typically toll free and won't show up on phone bills, which is always a huge benefit.

Do you also live with your mom or anyone else? Does she know what's going on? If you were to tell her, do you think she'd be able to help you do something about it? Obviously this is a very complex issue, and it's going to be very difficult to go through it by yourself. So, do reach out for support. If you can't talk to a friend (don't even get me started on your friend not believing you - that's not very nice!), or a family member, there's always the school counselor, you know?

Take good care.

I am going through the exact same thing at home.
When my grandmother died six months I had to go live with my dad and he made me feel crazy.
There were times when he would say I am lying and I would start questioning my sanity.

Last year I started school at a boarding school about 90 miles away from my house.
It is my save heaven.

And during the summer I would go to my Aunts house.

Do you have anywhere to go.?
It is very important that you know that if he hits you you have a place to go.
I told my dad that if he ever hit me I would leave and never come back.

I am sure that is not always helpful advice but one day you will be able to defend yourself.
I have

"My life is like a rolling river
So muddy and absurd
And although I might be mistaken
I know that Iíll be heard
And I find the second I try to pull away
Iím thrown back in line
All this time"
