• Have you ever stumbled unto other people's secrets and wish you hadn't?

    I learnt that my cousin has been raped when I stayed at his place and he was away.

    I learnt that my cousin has been raped when I stayed at his place and he was away. He put a map of his forensic medical exam in the bottom of a box where he also put his old books and papers, which I happened to open (just to kill time). I didn't know what it was when I opened it, as I thought it was his old term papers and I wanted to see what he wrote. I only skim the first page and put everything back in. I'm back home now and don't know what I should do, or think. We're like brother and sister, but I couldn't bring myself to tell him what I've learnt. Perhaps he'd be angry, although I didn't mean to snoop and we were in the habit of borrowing things from the other's room when we were still living in the same building. I know he was suddenly very withdrawn early last year, and my aunt said at that time that he was having troubles with his studies, and that it would clear up. I don't even think my aunt (his mom) knew, because no mother could have said that casually (as she did), had she known the real story. I don't know if he has told the police (I don't think so, or we should've heard, right?), or gone to a shrink. He's still with his girlfriend, though, who lives near us. He stayed at her place last Christmas, but I don't think she knows either. I remember telling him during Christmas dinner at my place that he always looked sadder now, and she said (without malice) that it's called becoming an adult. What should be done in my position? I feel sad now knowing this.

    Parents refuse to take me to medical treatment . What do I do?

    I am a 21 year old male who wants a test to see if I have low T(highly likely. I can't even do 50 push ups) but they refuse to take me. Any time I bring it up a nasty fight breaks out.

My fat ***** mother is home constantly and they'll know that I went to the doctors. Plus I'm not sure if insurance companies will cover

    To sum up the situation: I am 19 and I plan to move in with my boyfriend to Texas due to my abusive household and I told my mother in advance so I wouldn't leave her in the dark. She then tried to tell my siblings that I was leaving because I didn't care about them. She has always been very manipulative and abusive because she wants me to stay to take care of her 4 other kids despite the father living with her too. She said that if I left that she would cut all contact and that I'm not one of her kids anymore if I disobeyed her. We don't but he told me to contact him when I'm ready to leave. I announced again yesterday that I planned to leave and now she claimed she'd call the police if I leave so that when I get to Texas, he'll be in jail and I'll end up homeless.

  • My parents are against shacking up and keep telling my brother he's in the wrong. They say they should get married soon. What do yall think?

    Best answer: Your brother is wrong to think a 20 year-old can even handle cohabitation (let alone marriage). Pushing him into a doomed union is pointless. If she gets pregnant there's a reason abortion is legal. No one under 25 and/or who doesn't have a good job has any business getting married.

    I don't have much family left, my mother and siblings left me after they borrowed money from me and refused to pay it back. I disowned a large amount of my family that stood by and watched me get abused throughout my childhood, some even helping to cover it up. I only really have my Dad, Grandad and Grandma... I'm not really close to my Dad anymore, we seem to be just getting further apart every time I meet him he just talks about how I'm wasting my life away. My Grandad doesn't understand emotions and my Grandma who is the kindest person I've ever met has cancer so I can't stress her out. Truth is I'm really struggling, I have constant nightmares which leaves me tired 24/7. I'm spending a lot of money on weed, I don't feel supported by my family, I'm lonely and miss all the family I disowned however can't face it happening again. These people had chance after chance until finally, just recently I gave in and stopped bothering with them. I have friends but it just feels like they're using me and taking advantage.

    I looked up the house, the nearest gas station is a 30 minute drive from the house, the nearest Walmart is a 45 minute drive away, and the few other stores are huddle around the Walmart. The house can’t even get cable or fiber internet, just horrible Hughesnet and slow mobile service. There’s no Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, Postmates, even the Pizza Hut by the Walmart won’t deliver there. My mom doesn’t even want to go but my step dad threatens to divorce if she doesn’t do what he says, and my mom only makes a few hundred more dollars a month than I do, and my sister isn’t even old enough to move out, so she has to take care of her. You’re supposed to have an income three times your rent, for me the max is about $300 a month, even with roommates, this can be a challenge to find, and then I’m still left with just $700 a month for food, phone, car, etc. I hate rural life, and without being able to drive, I can’t even get a car to commute to any city!

Around 9am my mom sent my sister to tellme to get breakfast or else i wasnt having any, i was awake and on my phone by then, so immedietly put down my phone and went downstairs. I got into the kitchen and my mom was all like "Youve missed itnow, no breakfast for you" i was all like "Mom that was literally like two minutes" Then she told me shed woken me up earlier. I said i wasnt woken up properly (Im a deep sleeper) and if she wanted me up early for whatever reason she needed to just tell me and id go to bed earlier and set an alarm. She was having none of this and saying 9am was just too late for for breakfast, i dont understand this because shes never done this before and we didnt have anywhere to go today. So is my mumbeing unfair or am i just overreacting?

    over 30 years! Why would he think I would want life insurance money or anything else from him? He hated me and I hated him! Life insurance is stupid anyway! It's just blood money! Making me your life insurance recipient won't ease your guilty conscience about the horrible way you treated me, Daddy Dearest!... show more

    Recently I quit/took a break from my sport because it really wasn't something that I enjoyed doing anymore. I've done it for about 7 years and have achieved lots in it. I was on the top. It caused so much pressure constantly and anxiety for me. Our practice schedule was so intense, and I had little time for anything, our coach lacked interest in the team and was not supportive in anything we did. I wasn't motivated in it anymore and I'm worried that my other teammates will think that I'm a loser. Doing the sport made me feel very unhappy and a little suicidal. After long talks with my parents, I eventually decided to take a break and see how I felt after a few weeks. My mom always complained about how I achieved so much, and now I want to throw it away. She "respects my decision" but every time we have a conversation, she has to bring up my sport 24/7 and talk about how much of a quitter I am. I know deep inside she hates that I took a break/quit. She says she needs time to "process" this. I understand this, but she always has to make it about her. To me, I was doing my sport for her happiness. Every time I won, she would be very happy and proud, but I wasn't, and acted like I was. My mom said that I can find other hobbies, and so I did. I asked her politely to take me there, and she said she didn't want to. I got really really mad today and wanted to vent my feelings somewhere. I honestly don't know what to do. I can't talk to her because I know what she's going to say.

    I’m currently the step father of two, four and one and a half. I’m having a lot of problems with the four year old, she has a big attitude problem, always talks back, never listens and throws temper tantrums when she doesn’t get her own way. Whenever I try and correct the behaviour or even get the slightest bit mad her mother freaks out on me and sticks up for her, I understand I’m not the biological father but I’m the one who’s looking after them and the one who stepped in when their real father abandoned them and I don’t think it’s too unreasonable to ask for a little respect. My girlfriend always says she considered me an equal when it comes to parenting but doesn’t seem to want me to enforce any discipline to the kids even when they’re flat out disrespectful, what should I do?

    So, I have a son who is 21 years old who is immature and super lazy. He acts like every single thing he has to do is torture (cleaning dishes, doing laundry, vacuuming, general cleaning and organizing, etc.) He acts like he's out of breath every single task he does! On his free time (which he has way too much of in my opinion), he lays in bed and listens to music and stares at pics on his. This behavior isn't acceptable and I am considering getting tough on him. As much as I love him, I think it's time to use tough love. If he doesn't change this behavior by his 22nd birthday (coming up next month), I will call the police and have him arrested. I don't mind him living with me, but obviously I'm not going to be around to lift him up forever, so he needs to step up and stop acting like everything is so tiring! I don't care if he doesn't like it, feelings do not matter in a case like this! He has three choices: Get a job, attend a school, or go to jail! I talked with my neighbor about this, and she agrees with me. It's time for my son to face tough love.

  • Is it a bad that my own mom can’t tell me what she thinks is good about me?

    Best answer: Your mom wants you to be strong and know this for yourself. However, what she should have asked is: what do you think are your good points? Because what she did right now implies that she doesn't know, while she probably does.

    You can ask her again and say, well yes I know but I am curious what you think?
