I turned 15 yesterday, mybrother is 11 today and my sister is nearly 7. for the past 7 or 8 years my mum has been with this man. about 5 or 6 years ago he started getting abusive emotionally and physically at first it was only towards my mum but gradually i started getting dragged into the arguements. Recently he has moved out but is still around alot because of my little sister who is his daughter. i try and avoid him but it is impossible because my mum will get me to go downstairs to do something. he hasnt been round as much these past couple of weeks. But the real reason i have posted is because i am really worried about my mum. she is diabetic but doesnt look after herself properly, like takingher jabs when she is meant to and eating the right amount. she will usually only eat dinner but alot of the time will throw away most of it. she is always shouting at mybrother, sister and me and sometimes gets violent towards me. She drinks way too much. On a normal night she will pick my brother and sister up fromschool, get back and have a pint of cider then another two after that. Then around dinner time she will move onto wine and have about three glasses of that then around 9 she will move onto sherry till she goes to bed which usually means about 5 glasses. She will often have a hypo in the morning which is life threatening if she isnt helped quickly after it has started. One morning two years ago now was the worst hypo she has had. i didnt wake up soon enough and she groans when she is having one. my next door neighbours heard and called the police and ambulance because they thught it was somethin serious to do with my mums partener. evntually i woke up and heard people calling went downstairs and opened the door and let them in. the police sat and talked to me while the paramedics saw to my mum. I found out when they were about to go after everythingwas ok that my mum was unconsious when they found her and it was lucky i woke up when i did because if it had been two minutes later my mum would have probably been dead. Then i had to go to school that day but didnt tell anyone what happened just got on with it. i have never 4given myself for that. I am scared that if she carries on the way she is eventually the same thing will happen but she will die from it. A close friend suggested i should confront her about her excess drinking and lack of eating but i am scarred that she will just get really anoyed with me for trying to tell her what to do or something. Should i tell a teacher at school tomorrow and see what they suggest?? Or could that make things worse aswell?? Anyone with any thoughts on what i should do please tell me Please help!
