    :hug: you can talk to us :D

    theres a lot of people on here who are/have gone/going through similar situations, and im sure they can share alot of hindsight and useful advice for you.

    Unfortunatley im not one of them, so i cant even imagine what you are going through right now :arms:
    Hopefully you'll be able to come and rant here and get everything off your chest and we can talk to u too, which'll hopefully be enough to not go back to cutting.

    i wish you the best. thinking of you :hug::hug:

    bud hang in there. i went through alot of that myself but i never saw any help but then again i wasn't really sure that i could reach out. i would encourage you to try to reach out again for help. you and your sister deserve that. you don't deserve all the abuse. i find the young to be cherished and should be treated with respect. i hope you can find it.

    i also encourage you to try not to cut yourself. i know it seems like a temporary solution i've been there myself, but in the long run it really resolves nothing.

    please take care and if you need to continue to talk please feel free to do so. you can even pm me if you would like. please take care and continue to lean on us here as you can.

    seriously don't give up talking about it to professionals. if you don't let up they will end up listening they will have no choice. it will be the only way to get you to quiet down. i would also encourage you to make a journal of exactly what goes on and then you could take that before the professional and they do consider that to count as alot. so don't minimize that one.

    don't give up here. we're here with you as you can be. please take care

    btw yes i made it through my experience and alot of scars that have followed. i am now an adult in my 30's, but to be honest with you the abuse even continued into my adult life so i cut my ties with them nearly ten years ago now.

    Hey Jade, welcome back

    Nice to hear from you again, I missed you :hug: :hug:

    About your stepdad, I really think you should contact Social services again. This can't go on any longer :sad:
    How is it with the drugs use of your parents? If I remember correctly you found weed in their drawers? Do you know if they still do that?

    Honestly You need to get back in touch with social services, this can't go on any longer. Please don't keep forgiving him. He has no right to do this to your mum, you nor your sister.

    Ps - way to go on no longer selfharming. I understand it's difficult right now, but I'm sure you can do it :hug: `

    williams :hug: good to have you back. im so sorry hear your story, personally ive never been abused by my family, but you are very strong to support your little sisters :) perhaps they is any kind of counseling at your school that could help you to be protected again??? With the scarves, dw too much; unless they have been very deep cuts they should disappear after a couple of years, im so happy for you youve been able to stop cutting.
    Wish you all the best hun,

    Heya! aww thnku every1 is soo nice on here! i posted last nite but then it just came up sayin "page cannot be displayed"! Ester is graet 2 talk 2 u again! hope u r ok?!
    The problem with talkin to social services is tht they dnt actually beleive me about anything and plus it makes soo much more tension at home because i've told! My step dad is still smoking weed infront of us all but i have kind of got used 2 it now especially as some of my m8s smoke it!
    I had councilling both professionally and at skool and it neva realli helped but i suppose its an option again but the child protection person 4 my skool said tht i shudnt have skool councilling cos its onli with 6th formers tht obviously arn't specialised and i have 2 major problems 4 them 2 deal with! And self harming i havent done in a year but last nite i was soo close its unbelievable but luckily my friend talked me out of it! xxx

    williams, be proud of yourself that you havent started self harming again. It must be horrible with a weed smoking dad, if you can confront him and tell him what a lousy example he gives you :( We are here for you to listen,your step dad probably doesnt. Please stay strong, its a major achievment that you havent started selfharming again. Please feel free to pm me anytime.

    Hey, do we have any professional people working on this forum? Like is there anyone who actually knows about most of the laws and regulations about child abuse and the child's rights?

    I mean, j, you seem to need someone who can DO SOMETHING...

    do you see case workers or therapists or what? like, whats the title of the people you see? do thhe see you at school, or at home, or in some other place?

    what do they want you to say usually? what are there questions?

    honey, you need to be a man for your sister (which you seemingly are!! proud of that) and what you need to do is write down everything that happens to you, don't get emotional about it when writing, it's just a log of what happens and keep it safe, hide it or something, also, write down what happens at your sessions with this person you talk to from the social services....make sure you write down anything they say if they deny you are having problems, or if they say anything that is rude or mean or just ignoring your needs, OK?

    keep that log because in the long run, when you are a little older (how old are you? I guess what I'm askin is if you could take a little time and write more about your situation, what and who you're talking to about this, and what is going on) you can use that to get some of your rights heard.

    If you live in the UK, I don't know what the general custom there is, but I think there's gotta be resources here for you to use...maybe someone who can anonymously talk to you about your situation and give legal advice to you or something like that.

    but really, I'm proud of what you're doing and your sister is precious, do keep her and yourself safe. Don't fight your stepdad unless you need to defend yourself, just avoid him as much as you can.

    I know that there's a way you can get out of there just have to find it. I know that in the UK you can move out at 16 or something? I know u dont want to leave your sister, but if your life is in danger at any moment you should get out and THEN find some lawyer or someone that can help you figure out how to get your sister out and stuff.

    do you work? that'd be a good idea, to make money save it so when the time comes you can use it when u need it the most
