Thank you for sharing your story with us as TeenCentral . It sounds like there is a lot going on right now, and there are some things that you can do to help yourself.

The most important is for you to be safe. At any time that you feel as though you are being harmed by someone you can always call 911. You can also contact the help center that I have added to this post. Someone is always there to talk to and to guide you to get the help that is needed.  You can also text “HOME” to 741741 if you don’t feel like talking to someone directly. This is a crisis hotline that is there to provide guidance and resources. Lastly, I have also included the suicide hotline. You mentioned the want to harm yourself. There is always someone here to listen.

National Suicide Hotline
Available 24/7
Helps individuals in suicidal crisis with support


Child Help USA National Hotline
Available 24/7, over 170 languages
Helps youth who are suffering child abuse

1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453)

You had mentioned talking to people in your family. Is there someone else that maybe you could talk to such as a religious leader, coach, someone at a summer program, work, or even one of your friends’ parents? Someone that you feel is safe with.


It sounds like there is some conflict in your home. Is there a way that maybe you and your mother or grandmother even could discuss how everyone is feeling in an informative but also respectful way? We have great resources on ” Fighting Fair” where there are suggestions down to taking breaks so that everyone can talk about how they are feeling.

We also have another resource that is called the ” Conflict Organizer” that discusses the same types of things, but in a more constructive way. This way you can also get your points out in a more planned out way. You could even ask your sister to do this with you to show how conflict at times can really make things worse.

Lastly, find a way to calm yourself when you are feeling as though you want to give up. You mentioned in your post that you would harm yourself. There is always a way to work through these thoughts and to find what works for you. In our Learn section we have a resource which I have linked here that gives information on these very topics. Know that you are important!!!!
