My parents have been split up since I was 2 years old. Naturally I grew up with my mom but I still see my dad. My life was pretty good till I turned 7 my mom started getting angry very easily. Nothing was ever her fault always someone else I went through everyday getting yelled at over nothing. When I was 10 we moved out of the house I'd lived in for 5 years with a boyfriend of my moms that had pretty much been a father to me since I was 2 because I didn't get to see my dad a lot. We moved into a house that we are currently moving out of because of another relationship gone bad. I just went into grade 9 and my mom has now been diagnosed with BPS ( Borderline Personality Syndrome) it causes her to make rash decisions and make her think nothing is ever her fault she'll be happy as ever one moment and screaming at you the next. I live with my grandparents currently because my mom is a nightmare to live with. The thing is everyone thinks I'm just dealing with everything that's happening when I'm not I can feel myself starting to get angry over simply things. I feel very violent at times and start punching walls and pillows. I'm not as tolerant of friends anymore and frankly as much as my family says friends aren't everything they're the support beams to the bridge of my life with out them I would have no reason to get up in the morning. I'm starting to think that the stress that she's causing to me and the rest of my close family is starting to have an effect on me mentally. It seems like there's no end to whats going on even though everyone keeps telling me there is .
"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather is one of those things that give value to survival."
