Never thought I'd be posting how I feel about my siblings on a website but I have a feeling people around me are getting sick of me complaining about how I miss them. I'm the oldest child my mom has but my dad has 5 other older children (3 girls 2 boys) and I grew up close with all of them when I was a baby and kid but they are all about 5 years older then me atleast. Anyways now I'm 17 and all my siblings are either alcoholics, drug abusers or in jail. And it just really sucks because I remmeber them how they use to be and now it's like I don't know who they are anymore. I'm closest with my sister Laura who is in jail, she calls me everyday and those calls seriously make my whole day. My other sister is. meth head & the other one is an alcoholic who gets spoiled from her grandparents she's like a big kid. My brother is aways in and out of jail I don't remember the last time he stayed out of jail for more then a month. And my other brother recently went to jail for selling drugs. Even tho this is who they are today I just keep remembering them when we were all close & no one hated each other and it sucks because I know it'll never be like that again. I just hope I don't end up like them. This shitty feeling is coming more frequently and I know it shouldn't bother me but it does. I don't like telling friends about them because it is pretty embarrassing & I feel annoying when I keep  bringing them up. Idk maybe no one will even read this but idc it feels kinda good typing out my thoughts. So if someone does read my boring story thank u. :)

Your story is far from boring......I think you are a remarkable sibling who loves them no matter what addiction they have....You obviously miss the people they were..and thats ok, cause you had that bond with them...They are very lucky they have someone who loves them like you.....and you wont end up like your life and enjoy the partnerships you meet along the way.....xxhugs xx

You should not worry about putting your feelings down on paper or on a website, it really helps to express your thoughts. In so many case there is loads of support for the people with the addictions but what about those close to them. The Icarus Trust is a charity focused on supporting those close to others with addictions. We have a team of Family Friends who will never mind if you contact them and can help find you the best way forward. Take a look at our website,, use the contact page and register.
