One day iI was desperate to know what she was doing and I know it's wrong but my mum was depressed and i was woried what she was doing. I found her backpack and looked inside, inside I found the following things...a container with garden soil from our garden inside...half burnt cans... a lighter...I need to now what she's doing..burning cans releases poisonous fumes.....this could be bad....I needed a site were I could post anonymously and i have asked her before what she does but she ignores me

  • I read your narration with deep sense of empathy. A lot of folks have had enough confusion from a "confused world" to last for a life time! Lack of "personal identity" can bore oneself sick even to having suicide thoughts . Have I once considered suicide in my life? Yes .. . and indeed, many folks you see that walk the streets are full of challenges and pains that were inflicted or innate. In my own case, in my teens like you, I thought I will not be able to achieve anything because I was abused as a child , lived in a home that always felt like an explosive device was about to ignite. I struggled with these feelings and tried to fill the void via alcohol and "street smokes". . I envied and wanted to be like others. I began to steal. Well, I am an adult now, well educated, employed, married, had kids, drug/alcohol/smoke free, and really free from all my demons. How? Yes, I know that this will be the question in your heart. It sounded foolish and dreamlike but it was real. Someone gave me a copy of "New Testament and Psalms and proverbs"; a little blue covered book which could fit into my pocket. It was published by Gideon international. I began to read it from "The Gospel of John" like he advised me. I love reading and it made sense. Well, I may not be able to tell you all that happened to me but I discovered that as I read it daily, I began to be attracted to and talk to the main character in the story; Jesus and it seemed like and old self of mine was dropping off daily. At some point , I was shocked when I was out with my friends and realized that I hadn't touched alcohol in the past 2 weeks! That was strange. And the stranger thing was that alcohol lost its appeal to me. In fact, it disgusted me. My friends told me that they will "give me just three months" and I will drink myself to stupor like before. well it has been years and I keep getting better; more pleasant than the person I ever tried to be. . Jesus is beautiful.

  • I wish i could call the cops I really do!!! But i can't because i am 11 and also I went through her stuff and I wasn't suppose to!!! I will just have to wake up early in the morning and catch her

  • If you dont call the cops now she will keep on doing this and if she does she puts herself in a bad situation as a user and a seller. She could die in both situations then you'll blame yourself. It up to you.
