My mind is losing control

Posted by Jade unknown on 7 June 2015.

Hello. Im 20 neaely 21 im an only child that live with my mum and dad. I found out from a very young age say 7/8 that my dad is a heroin adict, i used to find needles i used to find bloody tissue laying around i used to find him slouching everywhere it was horrible. My mum was the only one who knew how i felt she used to say she hasted it aswell she was really there for me. Untill abouy 3 years ago i found out that she know to is a methadrone adict which is the suppliment for heroin so its just as bad. She is also an alcoholic she loves a beer! Everyday she drink all throughout the day aswell i find cans all over the place! I offten evem find her slouching around the house out of her head. Its hard enough growing up knowing that your dad is a druf adict but its even harder know comimg to terms that both of my parents are! Like i said before im an only child i have noone to talk to no one will understans not even my parents. My mind is losing control
