  • 13 and living in an emotionally and verbally abusive household

    my stepmom and dad are constantly judging me, blaming stuff on me, criticizing me, telling me i’m too much for them, saying i’m depressing to talk to, just anything that could make me sad. i don’t have all this time to type out all the stuff they do, but this situation is the cherry on top. my stepmom lost her $3,000 wedding rings, and she’s blaming it on me and my friends, saying it’s my fault when i have no idea about them, saying i stole them to “intentionally hurt her”, when i don’t even know what the rings look like. they’re saying if i don’t find them, i’m going to be paying back the thousands of dollars. there is only one way out. i can’t get out of this unless i die. it’s the only thing left for me. i have nothing left to lose besides my mom and my sister, and i haven’t seen them in 2 1/2 months, and they are saying i can’t leave the house until i find the rings. they are y’all g away my only chance at happiness, and my only thing worth living for. i don’t want to live anymore. i’m going to kill myself the second i get the chance.
