    I was super frustrated with life last night and ended up overdosing. I woke up in the hospital, no one's talking to me. The doctors wont let me see my parents and they arent letting me leave. I keep asking them when I can leave and they just keep ignoring, and talking over me. one dr just came in and asked the nurse "how's he doing?" as if I werent laying right in front of him. I feel fine, I screwed up, i get it whatever but they are blowing things way out of proportion. I'm obviously not suicidal now, and even though I keep trying to explain to them it was a mistake and I was just tired, they just keep saying "ok" and that I need to wait for the "specialist" to come in, they arent even listening and I just want to go home. Im about ready to pull these stupid tubes out and leave if I have to. Am I allowed to do that? Like if you arent charged with a crime police cant hold you so is it similar with doctors.

    My brother (18) decided to participate in a gay porn job where they pay straight guys to participate in gay sex. Long story short he described it as being the worst decision he ever made and that he felt violated as the shoot went on. He said it started out as one thing but escalated and when he hesitated about certain aspects of the shoot, the director/producer or whatever told him that since he consented to the shoot that he had consented to what all they we doing. I dont really want to get into the details of it but the whole "safe word" thing was a joke, and even though, in the end, they paid him what they said, he didnt consent to most of what was done. Before anyone goes on a rant about how he got what he deserved and that what happened was a result of dumb decisions for quick cash. He was a mess afterwards and even though he told me he was gonna do it beforehand, it took him over a week to talk about it afterwards. I already lectured him and it didnt do any good but just upset him more since he was already blamming himself to begin with. I feel bad and want him to maybe take legal action but idek if he could do that since he did sign a contract and took the money.

  • Does this mean he's gay??

    My friends and I decided to prank another friend since he refused to even show up to prom. The boys grabbed him, tied him up and blindfolded.

    My friends and I decided to prank another friend since he refused to even show up to prom. The boys grabbed him, tied him up and blindfolded. Then, the girls that he rejected to go to prom sat on his lap and gave him a 5 second kiss on the lips. It was honestly just supposed to be a joke, there was no ill intent but he completely over reacted and had a meltdown. Everyone got pissed off with how he was acting, not just the girls, and left him tied up to cool off. When he finally stopped yelling and b*itching we let him go. Now, all week, he's been playing the victim card. We asked him to hang out and try to smooth things over and he's acting like he doesnt even want friends anymore. So freaking ungrateful, most guys would've enjoyed that kind of prank. Even the other guys are saying he's overreacting, and he's avoiding them too, and they didnt even do anything. I dont mean to sound rude but I feel like he's acting like this because he's secretly gay or something.

    I'm much slimmer than her but I don't see how she could be jealous of me. I'm with her little brother! Since the day she saw me she gives me dirty looks and I bet she talks about me to him and tries to put him off me.

  • Is it time to kick my son out since he flunked out of college?

    He wasted thousands of dollars that I worked hard for to party during his freshman year. It's probably time for me to kick him out.

    Well my sister is 17 already but she's still super shy, quiet and avoidant when it comes to social situations. Even around me or our parents she is way too quiet and usually she only speaks when someone talks to her first or she can't avoid it. She never tells us anything about her life, doesn't say what happened during the day and doesn't randomly utter some funny remarks - nothing. She also struggles with making eye contact which makes her appear really rude and cold. But honestly there also isn't much that happens during her life since apart from school she just sits in her room all day and hardly ever goes anywhere. She's even afraid to go to the store on her own or make phone calls, isn't that silly for a 17 year old girl? Of course she has absolutely 0 friends and other kids at school don't like her and just avoid her because she sits in the corner all the time without saying a word and she doesn't even try to have a conversation when someone tries to talk to her. Most people in my family don't like her either because of her strange behavior and my aunt even thinks she has aspergers because she can't interact with others normally. I'm sick of her being this way and want her to change. She can't be like this forever and as an adult she needs to be confident and social. What should I do with her? How can I make her interact with people more and get over her extreme shyness?

  • What should I do if my 13 year old suddenly has tons of expensive items that she can’t afford?

    My daughter is too young to get a job. No money is missing from mine or anyone else’s wallet. None of our friends or family know about this. She’s been acting happier lately.

    My daughter is too young to get a job. No money is missing from mine or anyone else’s wallet. None of our friends or family know about this. She’s been acting happier lately. All these expensive clothes and items are appearing out of nowhere. I have no idea where they’re coming from. Her brother suggests that someone is buying them for her. It is a possibility, but all my friends/family always ask for permission first before gifting my children. I doubt that her little 13 year old friends are able to buy such expensive items (unless they’re extremely rich, which is not the case at all). So I’m guessing it’s someone who isn’t her own age giving her these things. My kids aren’t even allowed to go anywhere far. Should I look through her room to find out exactly how many items she has, or confront her? It looks like as weeks go by, she gets new items.

    My sister is 16 years old and I’m 19. I will call my sister Rochelle. Rochelle doesn’t have a phone or computer of her own yet, so she uses my Mom’s laptop. My mom told me to get her laptop from my sister’s room and I did. She didn’t shut it down before she left for downtown this morning, and I found different websites and tabs open for Judaism studies about culture and history and other things related. I showed my mom and her mouth literally fell open. She asked who search it and I told her that Rochelle did this. She was in utter shock and looked disappointed, confused, lost, etc. My mom said that will have a “talk” with her when she gets home again. She was yelling things and angry about this and that. For some reason, my mom hates Jews and she would never allow this in a million years. My family is christian. My sister is still gone right now. How do I handle this situation before and after she comes? I have a terrible feeling of what my mom will say or do.

When I was around 10, we were driving and he kept putting his hand on my thigh and I had to tell him to stop, he also signed me up for modelling at 10 even though I didn't want to. After that I've never felt comfortable around him, I have pretty bad anxiety and depression. I recently told my mom how I felt but she's basically pretending I didn't say anything. The big problem is that in every other way, he's not a bad guy and my mom is in love with him. I dream a lot about my mom and me and my brother living without him. I'm scared my mom will resent me if I ask her to leave him but I don't think I can live with him anymore.

    So, I'm almost 20 years old, living at home because I'm going to school and (for reasons you'll find out) can't afford to leave right now. My dad has always been extremely controlling, my mom will say yes to something but if he's ever heard of it and said no, both answers change to no, he forces me to give him most if not all of my paychecks I earn because I work for our grandma to help our family out. He takes it. He used to be an architect but decided to quit after finding that Herbalife was his lifes passion. This makes next to nothing in profits and our whole family suffers, but instead of getting another job, he continues to do this and steal money from all of his kids, the youngest is 14. I want to save money but he takes everything I have, I started putting it in the bank so he couldn't, and he calls me selfish and ungrateful. He's gotten so much worse since I've met my girlfriend. We've been together for almost a year now and in that amount of time, he's become 10x more controlling and demanding. He tells me awful things all the time and it really hurts us and I don't know what to make of it. He says things like, my girlfriend is trying to get pregnant on purpose to extort me, (she's extremely wealthy so it's not like that and she wants to wait to have kids), she's wanting to sell my organs to the black market, that she doesn't really love me, just tons of stuff like that and it really brings me down. Is he being abusive or is it just in my head? Am I overthinking?

    My 14y/o was manipulated into a relationship with an older woman. It started off online and ended with sexual encounters. When we found out, we called the police and had her arrested. My son however, felt betrayed and started acting out and distancing himself from us so we've been making him go to therapy. Well, he had a huge argument with his therapist and has been refusing to go to therapy since. I asked him what the fight was about and he wouldn't say. I called the clinic and they wouldn't say much except that he was triggered when his therapist used the term "rape". I get why it might be upsetting but not to this extent. So I figured there was something more going on. When I tried to talk to him and told him he needed to speak to someone a out the trauma, and I used the term "statutory rape" he went into a rage and took off. I'm confused bc he's aware of the charges against her, knows she was arrested and why but he's getting angry with everyone else who are only trying to help him through it.

  • Is it fair that my parents force me to babysit my brother everyday?

    Now that school is out, they force me to babysit him while they're at work because they don't want to pay for daycare or a babysitter. It's so not fair that I have to spend most of my free time watching an 8 year old. I'm just a kid myself.

    My 14y/o daughter's friend told me my daughter keeps harassing a boy in class. I thought she was being a bit dramatic and even lying but when I asked my daughter about the boy and if she like him she got angry, we started arguing so I took her electronics away and checked her phone and social media. Her friend wasnt lying she kept messaging him, the same boy from different platforms trying to guilt trip him into a relationship saying stupid stuff like she'll kill herself if he wont date her and literally begging him to send her inappropriate pictures of himself. All of their chats are basically the same and he's obviously not into her. Im honestly still in shock, her father and I have already taken her phone away and havent decided about the laptop. I feel like she deserves more punishment, especially since she'll still be able to see the boy in person, but we're not sure what else to do.
