Do you know what you are doing when you are high? - April 9th 2012, 08:45 AM

Short Story:
I found needles in my brothers room, confronted him about, we argued, he slapped me and stormed away. He came back about 30 minutes later, his eyes were blood shot and his pupils were darting around. We argued, well he screamed and shouted, he ended up punching, pushing and kicking me.

So I'm just asking, do you know what you are doing when your high?

If you want more information, the long story is on my last post in Rape and Abuse category.

Depends on the drug, depends on the person, depends on the amount.
Couldn't tell you, needles could be anything.

Hey Becky,

I'm sorry to hear your treated this way by your brother, drugs are a scary thing and you should do everything in your power to stay away from them. When people are high on drugs such as heroin or coke its likely they don't know what there doing. They act on impulse and their impulses are unstable. What I'm concerned about is how he treats you. Just becuse he's made bad choices doesn't give him the right to abuse you. Sometimes people will abuse their family because they are the only ones who would take it.

Reality is you need to stand up for yourself. If you know there's an issue talk with your parents or your guardian. Educate them on what he's up to, it might save his life. Becky if you walk away with nothing else from this post just know that you deserve love and respect from him, don't think this is normal or acceptable because its not. Tell your parents about the needles and tell them about the rage, I don't mean this in a condescending why but this is a big deal, you need to get help for him. He probably thinks he has his life under control which you and I know is not the case.

I don't want to tell our foster parents because of the risk they will split us up and then we will never get back to our parents or be a normal family.

Sorry to hear that. But it depends on how the drugs react in a person's body. In most cases that I heard of most people have no idea what they are doing. If something happens like this again then you should tell somebody. Try talking to him when he's not high and see if he remembers anything that he did. Explain what the drugs can do to him. Tell him that he's better than that. That way you guys can stay together.

I have tried to talk to him but he ignores me or pushes me away, this all started because of his new girlfriend and he's with her 24/7 now, so I can never speak to him alone.

Have you tried talking to his girlfriend? Or do you have a close friend or somebody to help around you? Show him that what he is doing is not good for him.

I have tried and failed to get to know his girlfriend, all she does is call me a brat and then complain to my brother that i'm bullying her. I don't have any friends because of the foster care situation. I have tried talking to my brothers friends but they are not interested since he dumped them for his girlfriend.

Obviously if you have tried all of that then I think your brother needs to get help. I'm not trying to say that in a rude way, but to save him from whatever he is doing. I think an adult needs to be brought into the situation. Maybe his grilfriend's parents? Do they care? Or is she part of the Foster home thing as well?

She's a lot older then him, I believe she lives alone. I'm scared that if I get an adult involved we will be split up and my brother will hate me forever and we will never get back to our mum after the custody thing is sorted.

Change maybe scary, but sometimes it needs to happen. Yeah he might hate you, but do you really want to be abused like that? You deserve better. If you guys split up couldn't you still end up with your parents if its just a custody thing going on right now? I'm not big into this, but I know somethings. I might end up in a Foster home due to the way my parents treat me. I have Child Protective Services coming over my house every week. my situation, I'd never be with my parents again. But if it is a custody thing it might be written down in your records and you could end up back with your parents.

My parents don't really want me, they want my brother, but my brother always said its both of us or none of us, but if the social split us up, they will take my brother back and dump me in foster care...

Well then if your brother really feels that way then he should listen to you when you say if he doesn't stop. Why don't your parents want you?

Becky,

It's not your fault that your parents don't want you. And it's not your fault that your brother is on drugs and abusing you. It's also not your fault that his girlfriend won't listen to you. It's not fair for you to have to go through all of this. Please, please tell someone about this, preferably whoever you live with. Things will just get worse if your brother doesn't get help. I know it's scary and you don't know for sure what will happen, but he needs help, and you need safety.

Take care.

I agree with Hester. You need to tell somebody. Nothing is your fault. My parents feel the same way about me. But I got help when I needed it, if I get split up from my sisters I'll have to live with it. But nobody wants you to get hurt. Please get help. Tell somebody. Something very bad can happen to you. Your brother could go crazy and injure you so badly you could end up in a hospital and then you guys might be split up for sure. Or worse things could happen. I wish you the best of luck!

My brothers the only person I have had since we were young, I don't want to stop trusting him because of one mistake, if he hurts me again then I will go to someone, but he hasn't done anything much since that night and what if I get him into trouble? Then I will have no one because he will hate me just like our parents do and I will have no one to turn to.

If he is taking drugs, then he is a risk to you and to himself. If talking to him when he is calmer doesn't work, and you believe he is still taking drugs, then you need to speak to someone. As Rachel has said, bad things can happen when drugs are involved.

He's never calm so thats kind of out of the question, he just avoids me now, but I've woken up in the middle of the night to him in my room, he's just sitting on my bed and running his hand through my hair but when he realises i'm awake, he says goodnight and leaves quickly. my brother is in there somewhere i know he is, thats what he use to do when I was younger, but if i get him into trouble or if i tell someone he might leave for good and then I will never have my brother back.

Well if things happen where you guys are split up know that you are always going to meet more people. Your brother may still be deep inside him, but the drugs are getting to him. Even if he isn't acting like himself you should tell somebody. Not just due to him hurting you. Again things could go worse then you would have ever thought. You just need to be safe. For all you know he could be hurting people besides you. I'd say now is a good time to get help.
