  • Abusive Sister and Unhelpful Parents.

    I have a twin sister exactly one minute younger than me. She's been violent towards me for years, but it's getting to the point where she's not only making death threats, but acting upon them. When I run away from a fight, I find the toolbox open with a hammer or so missing. Sometimes the kitchen drawer is left open with various knives gone. If I didn't run and hide, I might not even be here right now.

    I've talked to my dad countless times to the point of him becoming annoyed. People have started to assume I'm lying. A lot just think this is a simple quarrel.But I feel I can honestly say we hate each other.

    My family has had numerous family counseling, therapists, phycologists, I've gone to the school counselor. every authority figure I can access. This feud in myhouse just continues. It's not like I can go anywhere else. I have no relatives nearby that haven't been violent themselves and some have harassed me sexually.I don't have any friends at school. I don't know what do to. One of these days, my sister just might succeed at her littler mission.

    Hi there,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to us and sharing your story. It really sounds like a very scary situation at home but we’re glad to hear from you. You’re brave for reaching out and asking for help.

    It sounds like your sister is making you feel extremely unsafe at home and it’s understandable why you would be concerned. This is a lot to try to be dealing with and avoiding, especially with authority figures not taking this concern seriously. It sounds like your family has tried several different things to try to intervene and it just has not worked. This has to be frustrating. Another option that may be a possibility to try would be contacting Child Protective Services of your state to make a report. For help doing this, you can call us at 1800 RUNAWAY (786 2929) or Child Help USA at (800) 422 4453.

    You shared that you do not have any other place to go, because of past experiences with other family members. You deserve to feel safe and we are sorry to hear that you have not been feeling this way. If you are ever in immediate need of assistance, you can always call 911. In the meantime, there may be shelters that we could try to find in your area if you are wanting to leave home. We’re not here to tell you what you should or should not do in your situation, we’re just here to help keep you safe in what you decide.

    Please do call or chat to talk more through your situation. We’re here to help you as much as we can.

    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
