Hey young brother, I'm glad you shared here in time of need. You may not know it yet, but there are those here who care, and I am one of them. Sounds like you are where you need to be now, with your Dad. PM me sometime if you need to talk further. Do you know how to do that? Go to personal messages and enter "robslob" where it says "to". I am much older than you but I went through some personal hell when I was a kid myself.

it sucks...pray, focus on music as your release (not drugs or alcohol) and try as hard as you can to be positive...someday you will realiize( if you don't already) that people have problems that have nothing to do with you...it's not about falling down..we all fall down..it's about how you get up..

good luck man..

At first I thought I was re-reading some of the events I've been through, then yours were a little more extreme.

My mom's crazy as well... just gotta deal with that.

Press on through all the BS, and you'll slowly get by.

Sorry about these big troubles you've been facing, kid. To me the major thing sounds like stay away from your grandfather and if the courts try to send you back then tell your story to someone who can be an advocate for you (this may need to be somebody outside of your family). I hope your brothers are safe - couldn't tell for sure from your post whether they are younger, still in an unhealthy home situation, etc. You are with your father now - sounds like that is where you need to be and where you will find the most nurturing environment. Like Lefty said - it's good you have your music ... this will give you something positive and uplifting to concentrate on. Keep your focus there and on what is wonderful with the world and keep on keeping on. This too will pass. Good luck and God Bless!

What Lefty said about music - make that your focus.

As a graduate of a major dysfunctional family, let me point out to you that NONE OF THIS IS YOUR FAULT. It sounds to me like your grandfather is dangerous. Beating on anybody is against the law. Since you are (I presume) a minor, this is even more serious. If he threatens you with a gun, he's really tempting the law. Don't hesitate to call the authorities if dear old granddad goes off his rocker like that. While going to the authorities might sound drastic, they have nice folks (social workers) who can help you and your mom (if she wants help) find solutions to your situation.

You might also chat with a favorite teacher or counselor (if you are in school, which I hope you are).

Prayers for peace, strength and wisdom for you going up right now.

DItto to what has been said. Please remember that you are your own person and that you will choose a better path than these other people in your life have. Spend time with good solid friends and also talk to the arts - plenty of great music and literature has been made by wise and sensitive souls who have managed to triumph over some hard times, and you will learn from the rough beauty of those arts in remarkable ways. Make your own art too; the best triumph is to turn lousy times into meaningful art that you can share with others at some point - Jim

I agree with everything that's been said here. Some good advice from some very wise people. One other thing, I'd really suggest that you reach out & try to get some professional help for yourself & your brothers, if you haven't already. A school counselor was mentioned here. That's a good place to start. Most places have a crisis line that you can call, also. Someone there can help you immediately and also help you get connected with someone to talk to on an on-going basis. Good luck & stay in touch with us here. We'll do what we can to help.

this is very important..some folks think it is BS..I look at it this way...if you have the flu, you go to the doc..break your arm ? you go to the doc...your head is no different

try to remember that sometimes, you can watch people and learn what NOT to do...

Well, here’s wishing you some peace and happiness.

Much good advice previous to my post, but I’ll add this thing my dad told me a few times when things seemed bleak…

“The sun will come up tomorrow.”

So some days suck, some weeks, even some months or years, but things will get better.

Howdy everybody. I've got this little brother on my mind & thought I would bump this thread of his. It sounds like he is having a rough time right now & could use some community vibes & prayers.

Hey kid, I've been checking to see if you have been around looking in on the other thread you started. If you need to talk let us know.

Peace, Brian
