    I need help. This doesn't involve myself,

    but I'd like someone to vent with and could possibly diagnose a family member of mine. It scares me on what she's doing and I need help. Maybe just someone to tell me what they think is going on. Just something to lead me. Thank you, and please contact me if you can help.

    I Don't Get It

    How can someone hurt you so much with his mouth to a point where you wanna die? how can someone make you feel so low, lower than dirt? on top of that of that, he always make himself out to be the victim. Is God watching? how can I give my life to God and still go through this?
