Why is my life so horrible?

Everything in my life is going wrong.

Report as

About a year ago I posted a story on Ask about a guy named Bomber Brown. Bomber and I used to work the night shift together and when it was quiet we played cards. We kept score and, at the end of the week,the loser had to buy a lottery ticket for the other. It was always very close but Bomber never had to buy a ticket -- he always won.

The reason was that although we both played our good cards well, he played his bad cards better than me and once in a while he won a game he should have lost.

So why is your life so horrible? Honestly, it isn't. That's just the way it seems to you at the moment. When things go wrong and you don't know what to do, hang in there and handle it the best way you know how. Like Bomber, you'll sometimes beat a situation that should have got the better of you. And, like Bomber, you'll be a winner.

My life is horrible because... Well where should I start? I am 14. I have no friends. I was just diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Which puts me in both physical and mental pain all the time. There aren't any medications or anything to help my Fibromyalgia. My parents just got a divorce. I am loosing all of the people close to me. My mom might die of cancer. All of my pets seem to be dying. Most days I can't afford to buy myself food. My mom never goes grocery shopping. Instead she buys alcohol and new stuff for herself. Every night my mom gets drunk and yells at me for absolutely nothing. I am now officially failing all of my school classes. I used to be a straight A honor roll student. I hardly ever get to see my dad. Even tho my life would be better off with him. I probably have Bipolar Disorder. And nobody will even talk to me any more. I honestly can't think of one good thing that has happened to me in the past 5 years. I try and try and try to play my bad cards right but no matter how hard I try I always end up loosing. I just want to say I am not trying to be rude or anything if what I just said came across that way.

It's kind of hard to pull myself together when I just got diagnosed with Fibromyalgia which puts me in constant physical and mental pain, my mom will probably die of cancer soon, I have absolutely no friends, I am 14 which it self is hard enough. All of my pets keep dying, my parents just got a divorce, the anniversary of my uncles death is coming up. And my uncle was my best friend and I didn't even get to say good by to him. I used to be a straight A student but now I am failing all of my classes because of my Fibromyalgia. If you have any suggestions on how to pull my self together from all of that... My ears are open.

Because you let it be. Positive thinking changes your whole perspective. You have control over your life....don't like something about it, change it. :) simple as that. Cheer up and be awesome!!

It truly is everything... Both my mental health and physical health are down the drain. My social life sucks. My family is completely torn apart and there is no way to fix it. I have no friends. And I am loosing everything and everyone I love. Oh and I am failing all of my classes... I can't think of one thing that is good in my life right now.

Just keep your head up. Thinking negatively and giving up will surely kill you. Just do the best with what you have and work up from there, keep faith in whatever religion you may have or just keep faith that things will take a turn for the better soon. Don't sink down in to the depression and seemingly terrible smoke that is fogging up your life. Please, don't give up, I honestly wish I could physically help you but I don't think i can. Please heed my words and do you best with what you have.
Report as
I am actually not religious at all. I don't believe in any god or anything like that. And it's kind of funny that you used the expression terrible smoke that is fogging up your life because, there is a part of my Fibromyalgia called brain fog which is basically a brick wall in my head that stops me from accessing information and memory's I have stored in my brain. That's why my mental health is so bad.
Report as
I'm sorry. That sounds extremely frustrating. Is there a cure for it?
Report as
Not yet... Most doctors didn't believe it was a real thing until a few years ago. They don't even know what causes it.
Report as
I'm sorry. I know everything seems bad but just keep your head up.

Because you're pityful. Stop feeling sorry for yourself. There's a light at the end of the tunnel, start searching.

It may seem that way, but you may be only focusing on the bad. Most people go thru rough patches where nothing seems to go right. You need to just sit back and look at what is going wrong and why. Then figure out a new plan and put it into action. Believe me I have had to do this several times. Plan A didn't work, so after a good cry I went to plan B. When that didn't work I drank a bit and went to plan C. I think I am on plan G about now. Life sucks sometimes, you just can't let it suck the life out of you. Regroup, move on and be stronger for it!

Because sometimes things just suck. But hold on, if you can get through this better times are coming. You said you're 14, in 4 years you can be a totally different town with new people to meet. My life sucked until I moved out at 18. Stay strong

Q... I read your comment to Dozy. I don't know if this will help but, the past 3 years I have felt like one of those "Whack-a-Moles". You know that game? As soon as he gets his head above ground a person is just waiting to whack that mole down.
Just keep poking your head up. And when you survive all those whacks, you'll think: wow, I'm stronger than I thought. My best advice, as soon a "whack" comes along, tell yourself: I can handle this and I'll be stronger (& more experienced) than the average joe (or jane) for it. It might help to have a goal, like college- technical or otherwise- to aim for or focus on. Best of luck to you!

Raleigh, one of my kids was asked to write a high school essay on stress in the home and the teacher made the mistake of saying, "It doesn't have to be completely factual."

So the essay read something like this. "Dad is an alcoholic (I don't drink) who comes home drunk every night and beats us. Mum is a hypochondriac and is always pretending to be sick so that I have to cook the meals, clean the house, and look after the other kids."

The teacher called Garry aside after class and asked if there was anything she could do to help. She swallowed it, hook, line and sinker. Garry didn't tell us about it till years later but I'm glad I never met that particular teacher.

Now I would never use a word like "troll" in a situation likethe one Questionit described but, if even part of it is true, he's certainly having a horrible time.

Yeah, usually I read some background. If nothing else, it was a good pep-talk to myself... still going through plenty of whacks. :)
.... NOT Garry!! ;)
