Hi. I'm a 15 year old girl. My parents are divorced and I have a special needs brother. I live with my mother and brother. My mother is bipolar and depressed. She has attempted suicide many times, landing her in the hospital each time.
She's hard to live with mostly because of her paranioa. I have to watch what I say every moment I'm around her because I could never know which way she'll twist my words in her mind.
Last year I started a new hobby. Its called cutting. I've also tried killing myself which landed me in the psychiatric ward of a hospital two times. To add to my problems, I'm in the process of being molested by a girl who was in my school last year, but she graduated 12th grade so maybe I won't see her as often. I am currently seeing a psychologist and a psychiatrist but unfortunately due to past accurances, I no longer trust anyone. Technically speaking, I'm thinking of killing myself right now. Its gotten that bad. If anyone has a word of advice, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

PLEASE DON'T DIE!!! I care about you and need you here, and Hashem cares about you and needs you here. Your husband will need a wife and your children will need a mother. The world will NEVER be the same without you!

Yet, your situation is very, very difficult, and it is very hard to give advise without knowing you, your family, and your community. However, in a general way, here is what I think: 1. Please tell your psychiatrist and psychologist what is going on - trust is not the issue right now; keeping you safe and sound is the issue. 2. Please go to your community Rabbi and tell him what's going on. He is an objective observer, and has "pull" in the community. Together, you and he can make assessments as to whether or not you need to leave your home or school.

Your story is such a painful one. Yet, I believe from the bottom of my heart that you CAN overcome this.
