Any advice? (TW: S*icide and cussing)

_gr33n_d8y_n_fn8f_f8n_ 2/23/2021 01:43 pm 342

So I recently told my dad that my "stepmom" was making the way she treats me and my brother that it's starting to lead to thoughts to KMS. He said that I was"Dramatic" and i was so f*cking mad. Any advice for persuasion? He doesn't believe me and these thoughts are starting to f*cking scare me.

(edit: I talked to my dad yesterday and it's "MY FAULT" she's giving me those thoughts. WTF????)

@ChiefCard: Yes, I am a minor, But thank you so much!! (it's not my actual mom, it's my "stepmom")

sorry if I'm wrong but I'm assuming you're a minor. With that assumption, if your mother is treating you and your brother in a way that is making you feel like that I recommend the therapy route as well but that behavior is mental abuse and can continue to get worse as a result of her not fearing consequences or being shown it is actually wrong, not to mention long term affects on both you and your sibling leading to issues within yourselves later in life. If you aren't able to or are denied therapy I recommend finding a way to report this to a social worker at your school or through your county, even call a su*cide prevention line and tell them how you feel and what treatment you're receiving , they might be able to help you get the resources you need.

Without giving too much info I was denied therapy when requested by my parents and it took my being hospitalized because of ulcers I developed due to the stress I was inuring at home to finally have the chance to tell a social worker that gave me the information to get the help I wanted to deal with my surroundings and forced my family to allow me to attend. so before it gets worse , do know you aren't the only one that this happens to so don't allow others to dismiss you and invalidate you. If you think its serious and will continue, seek out resources in your county and find laws that can protect you (especially if you guys are underage) and can allow you to get assistance in the resources you need for help.

Just because you feel emotions doesn't mean you're dramatic, You are valid <3

@stella_luvsfnaf: No problem! It might be better to ask ur mom abt therapy if ur dad is acts like that when it comes to mental health.. My dms are always open if you gotta vent or ask for advice!

@kokichi_brand_soda: It's not abuse; she tells me and my brother to STFU in front of my dad and he does nothing about it and says she "didn't do anything wrong". she also thinks its ok to call my brother a b*tch. and lies to my dad. But thank you so much! (also i do swap houses)

asking if you can get a therapist or asking a friend if ur able to vent to them helps, if u swap between houses, talk to ur mom abt it. Talking to a school therapist can help as well... gathering comfort items or finding healthy coping mechanisms helps me w/ my depression. Try to get ur stepmoms abuse on video to show ur dad could work, but idk
