  • I can’t deal with life- just like a lot of people.?

    I was raised in a chaotic house, with an older and younger brother, with my single 23 year old mother. My dad was not in the picture- as he didn’t look at me like I like I was his child- only a mistake that was created by my parents night of “fun”. I was taken as well as my younger brother by Children’s Aid when I was 4 years old, and constantly in and out of foster care until I was 7. My mom finally had all of her custody and visitation taken away until I am 18. I was adopted at 10, to a single women. Having many behavioural issues, and a very bad temper- I wasn’t any angel child. My life went to comeplete hell when I found my bio mom on Facebook in February 2013. I was 12 years old. I am now 17 and have been in and out of the damn hospital multiple, multiple times. I am very confused on my meaning of life- because honestly it was just a game to start with. I’m not trying to loathe in my self pity, but honestly it wasn’t my choice to be here on this world, and I couldn’t change it. I know so many people love and care for me, but really- I cause so much stress and anxiety...everywhere I go. Please no trolls- and embarrassing at it is I was diagnosed with BPD, and I feel horrible to say it. I don’t want to be hated because I have it. I want to be there for everyone in this world. Just I need to figure out what to do with my life. Any suggestions on what I should do from here? It’s so hard having a bio mom and adoptive mom.

  • Am I a bad Father for being attracted to my daughters friends? Or am I a normal male?

    Hey everyone, I'm a 53 year old Married White man and I have three daughters between the ages of 19 and 23. Their friends are in the prime of female youth and I find many of them to be irresistibly beautiful, sexy and very attractive. My mind says this is not right, but my body really wants them sexually. My feelings for them are such that when they visit my house I usually get very aroused being around them and I can't help fantasizing and pleasuring myself over them after they leave. Even they can see how obvious it is I want to have sex with them and at times it can be tense and awkward when I try to flirt. I have also made questionable actions such as collecting their sexually charged party photos from facebook and instagram (short skirts, high heels, make up, low cut tops, bikini etc) for my erotic pleasure. Am I a bad Father for feeling this way or is it natural biology for an older man to be attracted to younger women in their peak even if they are my daughters friends?

  • 15 and raising my siblings?

    I’m 15 years old and I’m raising my three siblings. A four year old, a ten year old and a eight year old. My mom is an emotionally unstable woman. All she does is sleep all day and lock herself in the room. Sometimes she leaves to her boyfriends house and doesn’t return for a few days, leaving me with no choice but to keep my siblings. I’ve been doing this and living like this since I was 10, raising my siblings. I didn’t really have a childhood, it was like going straight to “adulthood”. Our family has been involved with child family services and my siblings and I were all separated I do not want that to happen again I feel trapped with no other options because I know In the end cfs will be involved. Everyone tells me that And I don’t want that. I don’t know what to do...I feel like reaching out to some family members but everyone is busy with their own lives. I’m tired of living like this I love my siblings with all my heart but I need to focus on myself my education and my future.

  • My dad doesn't think I'm ready to start driving. Is driving really that hard?

    I turned 16 a few months ago. I'm now old enough to get my driver's license. However, my father is giving me second thoughts about driving. He doesn't think I'm capable of driving. I told him I'm ready to start driving, and that I want him to teach me. He refuses to teach me. He told me, "You may think you're ready, but I don't think you're ready." This made me a little angry. Who are you to tell me what I'm not ready for? He told me, "If you proved to mom and I that you were ready I would." I asked him, "What do I have to do to prove that I'm ready to drive." He couldn't really answer my question. He then began to get an attitude and told me, "You're being very combative and argumentative." No, I wasn't. I genuinely wanted to know why he thinks I'm not ready to drive. He couldn't answer my question because I think he has no reason to think I'm not ready. I'm not an out of control teenager. I don't party. I don't do drugs. I don't sneak out. I help out around the house by; taking the trash out, washing the dishes, doing laundry, etc. I earn straight A's in school. I feel as though I'm responsible enough to start driving, so I don't understand why he thinks I'm not ready. He tells me driving isn't that easy. However, all of my friends in school that drive tell me it's very easy. My mother tells me it's not hard. So why is my dad telling me it's hard? How can I prove to him that I'm ready to start driving, and have him teach me?

  • I am the oldest child in my family and my mother is very upset about me moving out what should I do?

    Best answer: She likely upset because you are ONLY 18 and still a kid with little to no experience. I get it, you want to move, feel grown up, feel independent, but i highly doubt you will be completely independent from your parents and or their financial help. I'm sure if you told us the rest of the story as i'm pretty sure there is more we would better be able to help you.

  • Anyone wanna give me advice?

    Please read all of this. Long story short, I live with my aunt and uncle cause my father was a deadbeat and my mother couldn't care for both me and my autistic brother. But, I hate living here. I know it's a better place that where I was. However, my aunt and uncle fight constantly. He throws things at her, threatens to divorce her, and breaks her things a lot. After the argument, anger is taken out on me. I'm tired of being yelled and screamed at for no reason. Recently, after my mother fell into some drugs and started starving herself because of her new boyfriend, I've felt almost depressed. I could never tell my guardians, they'd laugh at me. My uncle doesn't think teenagers can be depressed. But, my grades are slipping and I been having some less than desirable thoughts. I don't know how to get out of this. Am I being overdramatic? It might just be something stupid, I guess I'm known for overeacting to normal things. I have no one to talk to, about any of this. And a therapist is out of the equation. I need some advice, I feel like I'm drowning here. I didn't write down everything I wanted to say, but I don't want to bother people with too much stuff.

  • How should I handle this (and should I involve my son-in-law)?

    Our grandson (7 y/o) spent last week with us while his father was away for work reasons and his nanny was having a week off (our daughter has sadly passed away four years ago). Usually my grandson called me Granny, but over the week he insisted on using my first name. Last night when I called, he also did the same. However, he called my husband Gramp, as usual. I told grandson that he should call me Granny. I asked where he picked that up and grandson answered that his daddy (my son-in-law) also calls me that way. My son-in-law calls my husband "Dad" because my husband told him to do so long ago. I didn't, because of some misunderstandings in the past, and as years gone by it has become awkward to change. I don't know if my son-in-law has told his son to be disrespectful toward me. How should I bring this up with my son-in-law? I don't want to have another fight with him. My husband said just let it go, but I don't want this to become a habit, or that our grandson grow up thinking I'm a witch or something.

  • Should I babysit my niece and nephew for free?

    Best answer: She is correct in that it's nice for aunties to spend time with their nieces and nephews. However, you do that on an occasional basis when it's convenient for's not a JOB with a required SCHEDULE.

    If it were my sister, I'd tell her that I'd be willing to fill in here and there if her regular carer was sick, but that your priorities are school and a paying job. You just don't have time for a five day a week volunteer position.

    Maybe your sister should make up with your mother. It's pretty cheeky of her to get into a pissing match with her unpaid employee and then expect you to pick up the slack.

    It's not like she is a single mother. These kids have two parents and they are responsible for them.

  • My uncle's brother in-law is handsome but has a mixed reputation. Should I ask him out?

    I am 22 and he is 51. I always found him sexy and he is not as bad as he once was though he is not in his son's life much (they only see each other at reunions and funerals). He was arrested at 21 for sexual assault my Mom says but that was 30 years ago and he hasn't done it since. He is a redneck but I don't mind that as my Dad and step-Mom are rednecks. So should I ask him out and if so how do I win him over? I have always had fantasies about him. I see him each year at my uncle's holiday party and when there is a summer gathering at his house as the guy lives with his mother (my uncle's mother-in-law). He has ever since getting out of jail 19 years ago but I find that sweet and don't know why people criticize him for it. He did move out for the 6 years he was married. He does not know his daughter at all but that is the mothers fault. So how do I ask him out and should I despite the age difference? Do I tell him I have always been attracted to him?
