Unhappy Help with my mom! - August 5th 2011, 07:58 AM

Hey im Jeff and im 14 and i have been feeling depressed for a real long time.
truthfully, i believe it all started with my mom. She is cheating on my dad, she is bipolar, depressed, struggles with alcoholism, and pretty much only cares about herself. She constantly drops any plans with me to go out with her friends, and comes back home drunk early in the morning. When any of us stand up to her she makes us feel like it's our fault and threatens to leave us again (which i kind of wish she would) till we like her again. She absolutely hates my sister and i feel so bad. She is extremely embarrassing to me and my sister. She kind of created her own world where she lies to people and pretends she has a baby a nice mansion and isn't married. My mother has done such unbelievable things related to all this it makes me wanna crawl under a rock and never come out. My parents constantly fight, my dad stands up to her but it just makes things worse... she steals his money (like $300! thats a lot for my family). She is worthless scum she does nothing, no job, and my sister and dad do half of the housework! I really wish things could return to the way they were when i was little, she loved and cared about us so much....And now im having anxiety that most people probably get before starting high school... im rather worried because im taking all honors classes and i really need to get involved in clubs and such( which is hard for me cuz im the shyest person alive and im not athletic at any level), and im worried if ill be able to keep up with everything.... so if anyone is reading this, it's just nice to explain it all...i truthfully feel the only reason im not going to like give up on life is because i believe i can create a bright future for me...any advice to help me feel better and for my poor sister.

Heya Jeff.
It's good to let things out buddy. I can understand why you're feeling these things; it's rough growing up like that. I really think you should get Child Protection Services, or at least your school councilor involved. They will be able to maybe get your mom some help. Please try and stay happy, man. Try and take care of your sister. I'm here if you need a talk, so you can always PM me.
Take care,
