THIS POST MIGHT CONTAIN TRIGGERS

I suppose my life was meant to be this way. I didn't sign up for it or anything like that it just happened to end up this way. Since i was little i ended up with the wrong end of the stick i guess you could say. First i can really remember was i 4 years old and my dad exposed himself to me. I remember being really confused. Then the touching and more and more. Finally after many years of this abuse from my dad I told my Nana who told my mom who confronted my dad. I remember the tests they did on me and then the police arresting my dad and my mom crying so much. My dad was put in jail for a long time but only lasted less then 2 years when he killed himself. My mom remarried and although my step dad doesn't do any of that he does verbally abuse both me and my mom a lot. So i do have a lot of pain inside that i deal with everyday and i cope with it by smoking cigarettes which i have been doing since i was 12 years old and i drink alcohol a lot which is really why I am here because i think it is starting to get bad. I also think i might be Anorexic. My name is Alexis, but everyone here can call me Lexi and I just turned 16 three days ago. I am in the 10th grade I don't practically like school as I get talked about by many boys as I suppose that is my fault. I do have one close girlfriend that I confide in, but she also has issues like myself. We stick together to help each other out I suppose. So here I am and I suppose you all will be seeing me around asking for help and hopefully getting good reports as well along my journey.

Thanks so much. I know i have issues but I suppose many people have issues and they deal with them. I saw this place and I thought this is great teens helping teens. I mostly feel my mom doesn't care very much about me so this place will be great for me.

Thanks, I really think this place and the members here will help me. I also know I will have to put in some work. I also have one special best friend who is going through hard times as well and we agreed to help each so I got her too. It is just that my mom just seems like she don't care about me much so this place is going to be great for me.
