I'm going to be seeing my parents today and I've lied to them about whats going on in my life. I wanted to wait to tell them in person, but I'm afraid that they are going to be angry with me. I haven't told them that my depression has become severe, I don't know how my dad will take that, and I know that my mom will cry. They don't know that I started cutting again. They don't know that I am failing all of my classes and going to withdraw from this semester. My dad will be angry because thats eight thousand dollars gone to waste. They don't know that I started taking prozac and sleeping pills my doctor prescribed me. They don't know that I came closer and closer to killing myself everyday. They don't know why I can't come back home and live there for awhile. They don't know that my drinking got so bad that I was no longer sober. They just never understood. I'm afraid to tell them all of this, I don't know how they are going to react. The only thing I can remember is the first time they found out that I was depressed. My mom was crying and my dad told me that I was the only child he has ever been truly disappointed in...because of my depression. Because I wasn't happy he was disappointed in me. I need some help. If anyone has any advice about how to tell them I would appreciate it. I am going to be seeing my dad later tonight and I am afraid. Thank you.

She was terrible to him when he got frail and sickly.He had done everything for her always and did...
My family member has been in rehab for 9 days of a 60 day stay and wanting to come home because they are happy, the plan is not right and so on. Can’t deal with it. Their spouse has told them they can’t come home or things are over. It has been 17 plus years we have dealt with their behavior. It is beyond sad and exhausting.
