Desperate to talk to someone
15 year old female
When I was about 13, that's when it hit me, that's when I felt alone. It sucked alot. I felt like I had no one to turn to, no one to talk to, no one to trust, basically I had no one.
I would constantly argue with my mum & her husband about small silly things. Like things I didn't do right - things like that. I would often cry myself to sleep knowing that the next day would be the same drama, different day.
I counted down the days until I turned 18 so I was an adult & no one could boss me around. I longed for that day but it seemed to take forever.
Just when I thought things were going to be fine, things went downhill again. More arguments, more getting-into-trouble, more horrible things that I longed to stop happening.
I tried talking to my mum but things would just end up bad, real bad. Sometimes the story would get turned around & I would be the bad one. I was desperate to talk to someone about the emotions & feeling I had towards my family members.
I was slowly giving up, ready to do something really stupid, something that just seemed so right at the time. It seemed like the right thing to do at that moment in time, no one would miss me, it would just be a normal day. No biggie. After juggling between wanting to do that & not, I finally thought 'no there are people I can talk to to overcome my problems & issues' & that's when I found Kids Helpline.
I googled their number online & checked out some of the stories that were on their website. Somethings shocked me. I rang someone not telling my parents & was very shy. I was really quiet & didn't know if I was doing the right thing.
After about 5 minutes on the phone to a lovely lady from Kids Helpline I was already started to feel better about myself. I got the lady's name & the days & hours she worked so I could continue to talk to her. She was great.
