I Just Need Someone to Listen
At the moment, my family is in a mess. I don't have a father anymore (he is still alive, he just has no interest in the family) so my mother is by herself looking me and my brother. She is an alcoholic. We don't have much money but we get by. However ever day, more than once a day, my mum and brother shout and swear at each other and I am left to listen to it as there is nothing I can do. I hate it. I have run away once but was picked up by the police. I am at the legal age now where I can move out (and I want to and have somewhere to go) but I am too scared to talk to mum about it. She has been violent before, more verbally than physically, and I don't know what her reaction will be. Also at the moment I can't seem to catch her in a good enough mood... or awake.
Can anyone help or just be someone to talk to?
