I am so sorry about everything you are going through.
I have no idea how hard it must be.

But i was really shocked when i read this,it is not your'e fault.
And i'm really suprised your family would say these things to you,but please remember they are NOT true.
They are probably just upset,and looking for someone to blame,but that's not fair atall.

My best advice is to talk to someone,is there any adult you trust? A friends parent, a relative,even someone at school?

I really think you should let people know at school,because bullying is never fair,and they should try and stop this,and they may be able to offer you some kind of guidance/councelling.
And i really,really think it would help to talk about it,And im really sorry i don't know much about the situation to help you.

This link might help you out a bit;


Hope i helped,and please,stay positive,because this isn't your fault.

Hi Sophie,

No matter what, do not believe what your family is telling you. It is not your fault if your father has a disorder. That is not something you can have an influence on, so don't believe it for a second. And furthermore, if your father does have a disorder, then he should probably see a doctor about it. It's important that he get some help and learn how to treat it, if possible.

If people are bullying you at school, then you should talk to the office and guidance department about it. They will be able to manage it better and have those people dealt with. That's not fair of them to do that and you don't deserve to be treated that way. It takes some courage to go talk to someone about it, but just stay strong. It will help in the long run.

As for your father and brother saying those things to you, I think that is just terrible. Don't listen to them and do your best to ignore them.
Is there another relative you could stay with for a while? It doesn't sound like a very positive environment for you at home. It might help to take some time away from your father and brother.


The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?
