Hi everyone! Before I start this, if you have something like this, I’d love to chat to someone who understands.
Well, I’m 12 years old, and my little sister is 10, she has: ADHD; attachment disorder and tourettes. Most of the time she says some really horrible things that really get to me. Everyone always says that she doesn’t mean these things, but how do I know that? Also, I’m scared of her, so I just, don’t speak around her, but that has affected me speaking to my friends as well, I’ll be asked if i’m alright, and even if I’m sobbing, I will still say that I am fine, because if I say what I want to say around my sister. So I can’t tell anyone anything, that’s what it feels like. so I can’t have friends over my house, in fear of her embarrassing me. However, the other day, I invited my boyfriend over when my sister was out, and at the table, we were talking and my mum came in, we were talking about like home life and stuff, and my mum said somethings that I had never told anyone. After dinner, my boyfriend told me to tell him more about me, and tell him the truth about what I’m feeling, but I don’t want to put pressure on him, or anyone in a matter of fact.So, should I tell him more about my family and sister? Anyone in a similar situation or got any advice?
