The Tragic Princess
What are your siblings like and how do they affect you and your SA? I'm the oldest of 3 kids. My brother is a complete jerk. Constantly doing things to hurt, bother and put me down. My mom lets him get away with everything he does, she doesn't have a clue when it comes to being a mother. He is 17 and got his GED about a year ago and always sits around playing video games or watching tv and has the nerve to tell me what to do with MY life. He doesn't even help around the house at all, in fact I'm pretty much the only one who cleans anything around here. The other day I was sitting on the arm of a chair and he told me no guy would ever want me cus I was sitting that way(which considering my SA is a low blow and really hurt)! He says everyone who says they have depression or SA is just "stupid", "making excuses", and it's "all in their head". He, added onto other family members makes me feel like crap My sister and I don't talk a lot since she's married and doesn't live nearby. She is into drugs and getting drunk and other things that is totally against who I am, but I'd rather be around her than my brother. Maybe this should be in frustration, but I don't think everyone's siblings are gonna read like mine so I'm sticking it in Coping.
