I'm 17... Ever since I was 13 my brother has been addicted to heroin there's been times with overdoses near death that if I didn't find him on the bathroom floor he'd be dead, I hate how I had to grow up like this. My dad had to stay home just so he could watch my brother and make sure he wouldn't steal anything for drug money my dad became an alcoholic and has gotten really bad over the pasts weeks my brother recently moved out went to rehab for like shit 8th time and is now clean after a few relapses and now my dad has to go? I tell my mom how bad my anxiety has gotten but she just says I'm fine I've recently had panic attacks and sometimes I just feel like I don't deserve this I don't wanna worry about one a of my family members dying just people don't realize how hard it is for the people around the addiction honestly it's hard too
