Brother with depression taking drugs
Posted by Lisa Jane x on 22 December 2014.
I'm 15 years old and my brother suffers with depression. It's been on going for around 3 years and in all honesty it's made my life very difficult. He has attempted suicide twice before. Over the past few months he has decided to start taking cannabis, and smoke cigarettes on a regular basis. I worry a lot about the drugs being kept in the house and I worry about this turning his depression even worse than before. This is really starting to effect me in school, not concentrating, i just worry all the time, my mum works long hours so I feel I should take on the responsibility to worry when she's not around. I thought I would share my story because it feels nice to let it out about how I'm feeling, and I hope this helps anyone that's in a similar situation like mine, so they know they're not the only one going through this, because that's how I feel at the moment.
