I made one of the hardest choices of my life, and turned my sister in for abusing her youngest child physically and verbally. It had been going on for a long time, and I should have done something before this, but I just wasn't strong enough. I feel so much guilt for not protecting this child or his sibling sooner. The older sibling I am raising right now, and is safe. The younger sibling was left behind in his mothers care. I hate myself for leaving him behind, but I didn't have much of a choice. Neither of them have had an easy life. And my whole family hates me for turning my sister in, but I feel I did the right thing. These children are innocent and can't protect themselves. The adults have to take responsibility for their actions. I'm so tired of fighting with everyone. I don't know what to do. I am so tired. Crying all the time. I don't cry in front of the little one, but it is hard. I know I have to be strong, but it hurts so much. I feel used up. What if they don't help him? What if she stops long enough to satisfy them, and then starts again. This is so messed up. Everyone hates me, and I'm so alone in this. :(

I really want to die. I find no joy in my life. Everyone I cared for is dead or gone and the people I've met are I guess well meaning but clueless and disengaged because they have their own lives. I am terrified all the time. I'm terrified of losing my shelter, how to eat, whether or not someone is trying to hurt me. I'm so so tired of feeling this way and I've tried reaching out but I feel like...
