Hey there,

I know that everything is really tough right now, but do your best to stay strong and calm down. Your family may be having its ups and downs, but you all just need to talk through them and help each other out.

Try to understand that your dad wasn't trying to be mean by wanting you to take the tablet. If they have been prescribed for you to take them, then it's important that you do so. Your dad was probably just concerned that you weren't taking it, and although I don't agree with his methods of threatening, it sounds like he does care a lot about you. When doctors list side effects, often they are possibilities and do not happen to everyone. If you do have negative side effects after taking the tablet, then I suggest you talk to your doctor about it and see if you can get the medication changed.

What is happening with your family right now is not your fault. Other members of your family may be having trouble coping or are going through some stressful things of their own. You can't control how this is affecting them, so don't bring this down on yourself.

I think you should really talk to your family about what is going on and how you feel about them arguing. Try to help each other through this. Listen to what your parents have to say and have them listen to what you have to say. They probably don't know how tough this is for you to go through right now.

Supported accommodation will probably help you with your mental health problems, but also make sure you stay in touch with your family. Even though they are having a tough time right now, they do care about you. Having their support may help you get through this better.

Take care of yourself, and try to talk this through.
