Ok, My grandfather and my dad are both alchoholics. I go to Alateen and it helps, but my grandfather verbally abuses me. He says he wants to kill me, and that he hates, me, and he tells me to get out of his house. (My family lives with him.) My mom will not call the police. He scares me. What if he does kick my family out of his house? I'd feel responsible. Please Please Please help mod!


hey! I am really sorry that you're in this hard situation. it's important for you to stay calm and try to be brave, because when fear takes over, it can be hard to think straight and make good choices. First: know that your grandfather's alcoholism is not your fault. Any hurtful things he says are completely untrue, and you are not to blame if he kicks you out of the house. Here are some resources for you if you ever need help and your mom won't call the police:

I don't know what to do anymore. I just feel blah all the time.. like no emotion. I don't get excited about anything or upset. I cant have depression-im not sad. I just want to be alone and ive started sleeping a lot.. I don't know what to do cause I feel like there's no point in anything. I cant tell my parents because I don't want to make them upset or worried. Its almost like I want to be sad. Or happy. I just want to feel emotion even if its sadness…i just need SOMETHING. whats wrong with me?!




Hey Girlie, definitely talk to someone. Depression isn't always characterized by extreme sadness, but low emotion is. I'm not an expert, but if you aren't happy, it's always best to talk to someone. If there is a way to make you feel better, you should try to get help. Better safe than sorry. I would tell your parents, but if you need more encouragement before you do, talk to someone you trust like a guidance counselor, teacher, or friend.

Yeah..I'm glad you've mentioned this because of drug use being so terrible.

i had to do a health report earlier this year on drugs

by myfatsquirrel on 1/30/2013 6:02:16 PM


I'm glad they pointed out the medication deal. I have asthma, so I carry an inhaler. People who don't have asthma but use an inhaler can get high, and plenty of people try that.

@fungirl123 @rockinlishy GL is actually right it's the nicotine IN THE DRUG. So it technically makes you addicted to it by stimulating your brain.
