It sounds as though your parents are so busy trying to deal with their own lives that they fail to see what it's doing to yours. They've relinquished parental duties to your brother; and his models have been less than stellar. It's no surprise that he would "parent" you in the same way he sees and hears them parent you. And it's not right that he be put in that position. It's not right for either of you. What's most important here is that YOU are dealing with very real depression, and that you get help for that. You've got the right idea about surrounding yourself with happy people, but if you don't address your very real feelings, your depression will likely worsen. Don't keep what's happening in your life to yourself any longer. Please talk to someone: a trusted teacher or school counsellor. I also urge you to contact Kids Helpline in Canada at 1-800-668-6868. They are staffed with professionally trained counsellors who will help you with your options. You can remain anonymous.

I'm sorry

Angela, I can't believe that your parents would abandon you to the so-called care of that sick monster of a brother and even allow him to abuse and berate you everyday...how dare they! That's not babysitting; that's just torture and I'm sure that there is plenty of professional babysitters and even your (sympathetic) relatives (if you have them) who would love to watch over you. Oh, and something is seriously wrong with your mom because she has problems and needs help. As for your brother, if he didn't want to be there, then he should've had the courage to leave and seek as much professional help as he and, like I said, your mom need instead of abusing you in this way. The path that he and your parents chose is inexcusable, so the sooner you tell someone, the better, so please tell someone you really trust and keep telling until he/she will finally listen to you and help you.
