Ferahgo Posted February 8, 2007 Share Posted February 8, 2007 I'm a teenager and I'm living with my mom. We live in a big house, you know, on the outside everything looks nice about our family, and that we've got no problems and all that. But, in reality, it's a mess. My mom's been mentally ill for almost 10 years (Bi-polar disorder, Chronic depression, OCD, and severe insomnia) and she can't really do anything but get angry at my brother (13) and I no matter what we do anymore (why will be explained). We're not allowed to see our dad because he beat me a lot, and my aunt and uncle are trying to tell my mom that she's an unfit parent. Everyone in my family is giving my mom a lot of pressure to turn my brother and I in to one of them to live with, and a lot of them have threatened to file with social services/Children's Aide that she's an unfit parent, when my brother and I know full well that she's a fully capable mother, despite her mental incapacitations. She's been going through a lot of work and she's gotten a lot better. The thing that I'm concerned with, is that since they've all been pressuring her to give up Wyatt and I, she's been regressing and her mental problems are getting worse, and I'm so overwhelmed at what the rest of my family is doing that I don't know what I can do to help. Any thoughts? Quote Link to comment
