I say that things will be better tomorrow and then I count to three. Then I just focus on breathing and then I'm asleep :D

I put on a movie I've seen a hundred times and mute it... It distracts my mind trying to figure out what they're saying and then I close my eyes after a few mins

if its work stuff, leave it at work. tell yourself I'm gonna need sleep to do my best when I'm there. but im not getn paid to think about it when not there. life stuff, deal with what you can change make a list. change what you can or are willing to and let the rest go. I find just making the list help. knowing I can see on paper the things I have changed, ideas on future change and the things that aren't changing. slip it under the bed every night and have sweet dreams

I like to read a good book about an hour before I go to bed every night ! Relaxes my mind and body and takes me away from any problems of the day . I just think about what I'm reading and get sleepy and drift off in Peace !

It was my dad btw, being a jerk again :/ I was going to wait till summer to ask my mom about moving out, and do it then, but I can't wait anymore. Going to talk to her when I get the chance, and maybe see about doing it in the spring. I just can't do this anymore.....

Probably the sooner the better ! As soon as I saw this question , I figured that's what it was !

Yea. I just need to get out of here. He broke my trust on something we talked about, and he told me I could trust him. I don't know why I believed him, but he did exactly what he said he wouldn't, and I got after him for it. I see it as lying. I was very upset, and dramatically he went to take aspirin, and said "you're giving me a headache". He doesn't even give a dang about me, he never has.... He says "we sometimes drive you to school, don't we? We let you go to school." Seriously? Like that alone makes you a "good parent". And that's my MOM that does that for me.

I hate to say anything about anyone's parents , but after having the abusive Father that I had , I have to agree ! Getting sent off to Vietnam was actually the best thing he ever did ! I became a man and learned to live on my own ! I think for your own sanity that moving would be the best thing ! He can say things on the phone but it won't bother you as much as when you're home ! I'm very sorry to hear this as it brings back old memories . But being gone was the best thing that ever happened in my life ! I learned independence ! I hope all works out and your friend spiritually helps you also ! Like I said before , don't ever hesitate to find me and I will always try to help !

Thanks:) yea, I remember now: I said, "you don't care about my happiness at all, do you?" And then he said "I let you go to school, don't I?" As if that accounts for my happiness... Not regarding my emotions or feelings at all.... For a "parent" he sure knows very little about caring for others happiness... I just hope I can move out soon enough! And thanks for your comments, and for listening... You're a huge help:) it's just hard, because the way he treats me, makes me feel sad and anxious... And also seeing my friend in pain is hard too... (She has to take new pain meds... They never last long, her mom told me.) so it's been effecting my grades :/ I could have straight A's without all this garbage in my life...

I hope you can move and put most of this behind you ! It's hard at first but you adjust and learn to live ! It's time to live Your life now ! I wish the best for your friend and I hope that God will take good care of her and you ! Sea_Trish had an abusive Father also and we talk about it too ! She's a great lady ! I wish you the best ! Don't hesitate to talk to me anytime you wish ! You're one of the few that I talk a lot to !
Report as
Thanks. I feel the same way. I can't talk to anyone else about parents on here because everyone on here seems to think all parents are "perfect" or that the offspring is just spoiled and deserves it. They honestly have no idea. I'm sorry for what you went through with your dad, but appreciate and am grateful that you understand.

I understand all to well ! Think positive ! I know you can ! You've always been nice to this old fart and I never forget ! You'll make it , I feel it inside ! Get a good nights sleep tonight and try to block the negative things out and smile ! Smiling is good for you and will drive your Dad nuts .

I'll try my hardest! And aw, you're not an old fart! You've always been nice to me. I wish I could be so sure-but lately, I'm kinda doubtful. And ok!

You'll be fine ! You're smart , talented , pretty , and caring . You're going to go far in life ! Sounds like it's time to spread your wings ! Freedom is the medicine for you . You'll meet more people and make new friends and neighbors . It'a a big world out there ! Now , SMILE !

oh well thank you so much! I know I'll probably be ok, just a little scared. I just feel like everyone is waiting for me to fail... sorry, ok, smile got it :) thanks though, honestly.
Report as
You will not fail ! You will do well ! Coninue your education and get a degree and have the job of your choice ! Be confident ! At least you get to move into an apartment or house ! I got to go to Boot Camp ! Scared out of my wits ! Then a year in the Green Hell ! Came home and it was even worse , so I went back and did another tour ! Just take life with a smile on your face and everything will be fine ! It'll be a little rocky at the start , but it will smooth out ! Sure , they will want you to fail , but you'll be strong and do well ! I can tell ! Things start to get you down , SMILE !

Ok. I'll try! And I can move out if I'm lucky... I talked to my mom about it last summer near the end, and she didn't seem all that opposed to it, said that she'd have to see if woodland has any independent living programs or something, and that it's a lot of work though, I'd need to buy my own groceries, and buy some new furniture ... But hey, I'm up for it! I just hope it's not put off too long when I ask... I want it ASAP! This is off topic-but do apartments generally have wifi? I would need some kinda Internet connection for school.

You got me there ! I guess you would have to call a few and ask ! Good luck ! I sure hope it all works out ! Let me know OK ?

Ok, I will:)
