*hugs lia and helen* not doing to well, am getting really confused about my family situation and dont really know how to handle it :(

MammaMia 13-07-2010 02:49 PM

Why you confused about it darling? *cuddles Nicole*

nicole94 13-07-2010 02:53 PM

because before, i hated my dad, i loved my mum, but at the same time hated the way she treats me, hated my sister, and ****ing loved my cousin, now my mums treating me nice, my sisters still being a bitch, my dad is trying to be nice, and my cousin ****ing hates me! and im confused, about my mum and dad, my cousin-i know why she hates me, my sister is a bully anyways, but my mum-she may just be being nice cause my sisters not here. and my dad?! i THINK hes just trying to mess my head up again-and its working :(

MammaMia 13-07-2010 02:57 PM

Wow :/ That is confusing. Wish I had some useful advice but I don't. I'm sorry *cudles*

nicole94 13-07-2010 03:01 PM

thats okay *cuddles*. i also found this online while researching running away-
A very small number of 16 or 17 year olds will not get housing and support from social services. If you are in this situation then you are automatically in priority need. This is only likely to be the case if you:
  • had been living independently for some time before you became homeless, or
  • do not accept an offer of accommodation because you do not want to be 'looked after' by social services.
Even if the housing department does decide that you are in priority need, they may still want to check whether you could go back home to live with your parents or carers - eg by arranging mediation to help you resolve any problems. But they can't force you to go back, especially if your parents or carers have been violent or abusive in the past. If you don't want the council to contact your parents or carers, you can ask them not to.

does that mean if i run away, i will be able to get help from the council if i refuse it from social services and then i wont be forced to go home again??

*hugs mark* you okay?

I'mJustMe 13-07-2010 03:36 PM

Nicole-Hmm...really? As we're 16, if we didn't want to be at home, we could get support from the council? I could run away? Yes, I take it that does mean you would get support. Or you could go to a refuge or something. Is there any reletives you could stay with? I asked that on the other post but haven't been back there yet. I'll look now in case you've replied.

Hey Mark- You alright?


nicole94 13-07-2010 03:42 PM

i think so, if were 16 and we run away, if we go to the council they will pass us on to social services, and if we refuse that then they have to help us! i feel like ive seen the light! and noi havent :( stupid family.

nicole94 13-07-2010 03:52 PM

i feel ****ing AMAZING! i have just spoken to childline about my plans on running away and i have their support completley! they said that im 16 and if i feel its best to leave home then they will support me! :D im happy!

MammaMia 13-07-2010 03:55 PM

*Hugs April* I'm sorry I had to dash on you on Facebook earlier , I wasn't expecting company , sorry :S

To everybody who asked - Things are going... not well, but not horrible. They're bearable for the moment. My counselor has phoned my parents in for our appointment on Wednesday, and I'm definitely anxious about that. The only other time he had one of them there was after my suicide attempt...

*hugs Crimson* Congrats on the essays! :) I always have to fight with myself to get any done. Crystal Light really does rock. I'm partial to pink lemonade though :P

*hugs Lia* I'd notice. At least now that I'm aware of your presence (if we haven't previously met, hi :) I'm Taz). I can get the sense of how you're feeling, especially about the wanting to run away and escape life. If only it were really that easy...

*hugs Oliver* I love getting into conversations in public that only serve to confuse people. And besides, people shouldn't be eavesdropping in the first place. Nor should it affect them in the slightest.
*hugs* hope the appointment isn't too awkward. If I may ask why are your parents going to be in this time?

Thank you. and yes, yes it does rock.

Lia~ we here would notice and miss you. All of us would.

Speaking of public eavesdropping... why is it when I look away from people speaking in sign language (my ASL is a bit rusty but I pick bits and pieces up none the less so I feel like if I look at them while they're talking I'm eavesdropping) people look at me like I'm doing something wrong?


Morning ward mates,
I'm sorry for the lack of individual replies it's just I'm feeling numb, numb and Low ( note the capital L ) , you would think they would cancel each other out but not today it seems.

I Hate being lonely too guys, and I'm so sick of it , I don't have many friends IRL , ( Only 1 that I see regulary ) , we met about a year ago , in hospital , Man was that a whole year ago !!!?

*Group hugs*
the numb and low don't cancel each other out for me just make me apathetic...
And I'm in the same boat friend wise...one person IRL that isn't my family... that's ok though I find better friends here :D


I'm... I don't know. The reality of Jarrod potentially getting in the army and me having to "survive" up to year-long deployments, and the changes that will take place between him being there & him being gone... that really hit me hard last night. I still want him to go for it... but I am scared. I guess that's typical, but I don't know. :-S I don't have anyone to compare to.
Another thing you may want to look into is the spousal support groups... They get together and support and distract each other while their spouses are deployed. And plan the welcome home parties :)


and es ist sehr gut
learning German or are German? Sorry you don't have to answer just curious...

*huggles to all and plushies and care packs left on the table with cookies*
