My parents made my siblings hate me as much as they do
We are so sorry to hear about what you are going through. It is never okay for your parents to be abusive towards you. Have you ever reported this to the police? If not we would encourage you to do so. We would also encourage you to reach out for some support from Kid Helpline (Tel: 1800 55 1800) and your local Headspace.
Thank you for being part of our forums, it takes a lot of courage and strength to reach out for support and we are so glad that you have done so. We hope that you can get some support here, the community will be here to listen and chat with you. Feel free to also give us a call at Beyond Blue 1300 22 4636.
I'd like to join Sophie_M in welcoming you here. I'm glad you met her as she gives pretty good advice.
Life certainly has not been at all kind to you, between abusive parents that poisoned the other kids against you, having bipolar and now with your mother telling you to leave your home. Its all pretty heart-breaking and and even frightening stuff, particularly as this latest thing is so unexpected.
To you really think your mother means it, or was it a burst of anger?
You are not alone, as Sophie said the Kid's Help Line will be understanding and practical. If you do have to leave home the other things like having money and a place to stay can be sorted out. I know of a young person I've talked to often who had to leave home at exactly your age, however between Centrelink and Anglicare she was helped a lot in practical ways.
Not easy and pretty lonely at times if you are used to seven kids around all the time. Is there anyone in your family, or a friend, who is more on your side and you can talk with?
Given the sort of life you have lived I'm not surprised you have anger problems, they can be overcome in time. Do you have a GP or other health professional who is looking after you and the bipolar?
I would like to say one thing that is important, you said yourself you got your dad into trouble, well everyone makes mistakes, and between a harsh family life and maybe anger taking over it happens. We all make mistakes, for all sorts or reasons, but that does not mean you are not entitled to help when you need it.
As I said you are not alone, you can come here anytime and talk about anything you like, we'll understand as we have been though hard times ourselves.
We would like to know how you get on so please post again to us
