My family is just like Sunny’s.
But my family makes fun of me, plus calls me names like ugly, stupid and retarded.
Please help me.
I am sorry to hear your family doesn’t know how to support you.
That’s right, I said “they don’t know how to support you.”
It shows their lack of understanding and empathy. You absolutely need to limit the amount of time you spend with them. Find a support group for people with a mental illness to join. See if there is a help line that you can call.
If you don’t already have a psychiatrist or therapist, ask your family doctor for help.
You are absolutely NOT any of those things that they call you. I know we all wish we could get help from our family but they have their own issues and you need to get help elsewhere. There are also many chat rooms on the internet that you can go to for information.
I am a big advocate of helping each other through the rough times. And if your blood relatives don’t know how to be supportive then find friends who are caring and compassionate.
Best of Luck,
