Angry PLEASE SUPPORT And/or help - August 2nd 2011, 07:19 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Basically, I am almost 16, and I have had a form of cerebral palsy in my legs my whole life (this means I cant play the sports I love which not only robs a passion of mine, but also precious comradery with friends I don't get to see much since sports is time consuming). This also means I can't pursuit the career choices I want to pursuit like sports analysist or a professional wrestler.

Furthermore I go to a school that is very passionate about sports might I add. I am decently popular, but my friendships have deteriorated over time primarily due to my frequent depression of my deprived life. I had to go through years of both occupational and physical therapy I might add which may seem minor, but takes its toll .

Additionally, my father has been a diabetic since 5th grade with multiple complications since, and he is just getting crabbier and bleaker as time passes it seems and he is sort of suicidal in that he doesn't care if he dies. Mother hates her job and I have seen her cry before which doesn't help things and is really moody due to menopause. Not to mention, my parents are separating and I just don't know what to say as they have fought many a time throughout my life. It is really hard on me since they have been together my whole life and we have lived in the same house my whole life as a family. I feel like if my bull headed dad would apologize to her, things would be better, but he doesn't take criticism well and I feel that if I speak up he will get offended at me.

I just feel that as a teen I shouldn't have to put up with this bullshit and be able to live a normal teen's life where I can play sports, hang with friends disability free and not have to worry about an unstable home life. Life gets harder by the day and my world just seems to be crashing down. This trauma also makes me question my religion in that God NEVER speaks to me or helps me out ( I thought he was supposed to have a plan for us well his plan for me sure sucks), so why should I be expected to praise him in high reguard? My salvations can't hide my pain and I need HELP.

Hey; you're unique in your situation. And if I'm going to speak on a religious standpoint for you, I know how you feel, and how it feels like a crappy little life you're having to live, and yeah, it feels like this isn't going to end. I know, I get that. I feel that way all the time. But you're going to learn, over time, how to get through this, and you're going to be able to help someone else. Think of all of the people your story could inspire someday. You cn do this. Trust me. PM me if you need. best of luck

searching for myself...
and hugs. mostly hugs.
