I am afraid and sad and scared, and i can't talk to any one... - July 15th 2010, 12:47 AM

I am afraid to be doing this because i don't know how my family would react, and i have figured out that i base alot of my actions on how my family reacts. I am sad because i have no one else to turn too and scared that my dad or mom will find out. Heres my story:

I am sixteen years old, though i turn seventeen in a month or so. I am a senior in high school. I live with my mom, dad, and brother. My brother is fourteen. He is going to be a freshman. My brother and I strongly dislike each other. He is verbally abusive to me and occasionally when he is mad hits me. My parents know and they sometimes try to stop it, but they are busy and can't see everything. Things have been escalating recently and my parents believe that he has something wrong with the 'wireing' in his brain, so they have taken him to a type of mental doctor (i am not totally sure of the specifics) and the doctor went though some tests with him. Today (right now my dad and brother are there actually) they get the results. I am afraid that my brother is now going to take up more of my parents time. He takes most of their time now and I think its going to get worse. For instance, the day I got my OFFICAL Adobe Flash certification (I am in high school pretty big deal for me)my brother got kicked out of his middle school, so my achivement went to the very farthest back burner. This isn't the first time something like that has happened. I have been told by my parents not to tell any one so i can't talk to my friends, but i tried anyway and they didn't get me. I tried talking to my parents and they didn't get what i was saying. I know that because they tried to have me talk to my brother and I told them i wasn't ready to talk to him yet. And the attempted conversation i wanted to have about me turned into a conversation about him. Please someone tell me i am not alone. That you know how this feels? I can't stand it any more. Is there any advice anyone can give me?

pretty much the same for me.
my brother was diagnosed with ADHD and aspergers, so he's pretty crazy and wild. he stresses us out a lot and my mom defends him with his "condition", like its so annoying! everytime we get in a fight its always me. never him, because he has a "condition." not everything can be excused by that. and he is abusive and stubborn and i've grown to hate him, but whenever i tell someone that they seem so outraged like "how could you hate him! he is your brother!" but they dont understand. so ya i know where you're coming from. its so frustrating isn't it!? i dont really have any advice-besides maybe tell your parents you feel like you're being put on the back burner-but i have empathy

always here to talk

What lies behind us
and what lies before us
are small matters compared
to what lies within us.

just got a formspring! ask me stuff
