We're glad you found our website and decided to reach out for some help today. It sounds like you have a lot going on and are in need of some additional support right now. Asking for help takes a lot of courage but it's the best thing you could do for yourself and for your family.
You mentioned that you got into a fight with your sister last night and left, where did you go? Are you somewhere safe right now? We're very concerned about your safety so this is a top priority for us. Please let us know where you are and that you are safe.
We know things aren't easy for you at home which really stinks. It's not fun to live in an environment that you feel uncomfortable in or unloved. But you do have your sisters there and even though you guys get into arguments, you still love each other and can be there for each other when you need it. It's normal for sister's to fight, especially since you guys are so close in age. So don't let the arguments get you down, just focus on trying to avoid talking to each other when one of you is upset because all it does is increase your emotions and make you say things you don't really mean.
What else do you do to help you calm down? What are something's you enjoy doing? Sometimes if we focus on using those activities to side track us it can get us through some tough times. Do you journal or listen to music? Try to practice using some of these healthier coping strategies to avoid falling into unhealthier coping strategies such as hurting yourself or turning to drugs and alcohol. All that does is create more problems in the long run.
You don't have to go through this alone so please know that there is help out there. We are here to listen whenever you need to talk. Also, your school counselor is a great option to because they can help you get through rough days, plus it's better having someone in person that you can go to at anytime throughout the day. It's important to know who's available and when and how to get a hold of them incase things are bad and you just need someone to talk to. So far you have us, and perhaps a school counselor. Can you think of anyone else? Like a aunt or uncle, neighbor or friend? Reach out t0 those who want to help because you deserve to have support. You and your family have been through a lot in the past few years. You will get through this though!
Stay safe and keep reaching out for help!
