    I Am Sick And No One Cares And I'm Barely Holding On.

    I'm only fourteen, you see.

    My mom uses her words to hurt me, "I hate you" "Why can't you be like your brother" "You ruin everything". My father tells me I'm not good enough. He hits me when I make him angry, like the time when I was typing a report and didn't look at him while he spoke. My twin brother...

    Growing up (though I guess I'm still growing up,

    ) I never really had anyone I could go to for advice or comfort. A mom with anger issues and a dad who was always gone working, married but hated each other; I knew the things I craved such as a loving family would never come from them. Yes I live with food, shelter, and clothes...

    What to do if you're thrown out by your dad?

    He threw me out a few times when I was younger, but I never left. Now that I'm 18, and I'm capable of taking care of myself, (at least according to society) I think I should leave and never look back when he throws me out again. My mom says not to worry because she doesn't want...

    I really can't stand it here.

    What ever I do isn't appreciated, and mostly from my mom. I mean when I cook, or clean she has something negative to say. So when I don't do either its always: "I'm always on my feet cleaning, cooking, and taking care of all you." That is pure bull sh*t. You have a room that...

    My mom frets all the time about my outward

    appearance and not about my inward, which has made me very insecure. And a bit dysfunctional in the head, probably, now that I'm looking at the causes of sadistic/masochistic personalities and maladaptive daydreaming.
