I do understand that I am posting this in a forum, of people who I don't really know, but since you guys have families, parents, etc. I wonder if you guys can help me. I'm going to high school next fall (yeah, i know I'm young), and I had to fill out an emergency card. Anyway I fill it to the best of my knowledge, and give it to my parents. My parents totally freak on me, they yell at me, about how my writing is terrible, they can't read it, it is a psycho's writing and such. I do have bad handwriting, but I can read it, and so can others. Besides, it's just a bunch of numbers, not an essay or anything, not much to mistake there. But they yell at me, on my writing, how I'm doing it wrong, it is terrible etc. and I tell them "I can't help it". I really can't, my brother also has bad writing. Then there are a few spots which I don't know, and instead of helping me or anything they yell "FIND OUT! FIND OUT!" and say "GET OUT OF HERE!". I ask them "what did I do wrong?" They never answered, all they do is yell about how I can't do anything right. I don't know where this came from, I can be clumsy and make a mistake occasionally, but I can do plenty right. I'm a great student, I help out whenever I can, i tolerate many inconveniences, and they have always told me that I am useful and the like, I generally have a good relationship with my parents. and at the peak of it all, they scream at me, telling me that I don't deserve anything, that I can go to hell (saying hell is somewhat tolerated, but saying it at someone is extremly bad in my family), they threaten with selling my most prized possessions, they make me feel like total shit. I tried talking to them normally, and holding back the tears (I can only go so far without breaking down, especially in such a strange situation as this). I honestly don't know what to do. I feel terrible, and I don't know what to do. My mom even mentioned how just a piece of paper turned into all this. I agree with her, I don't know what happened. i'm posting it here because quite frankly...you guys have experiance, and at the moment are the only ones to talk to. This has all struck me by surprise, and I didn't mean to anybody to get upset. To be honest, I never mean to hurt or upset anyone, sometimes I say something and people take it the wrong way or something, but I hate fighting. I really feel crappy. If anyone can tell me what I did wrong or what I can do, I'd appreciate it.
