My mother has recently fallen off the wagon and is drinking again. She says this is her last day, but I can't believe her anymore.
My father wants us to support him in being strict with our mom. We were supposed to sit down and talk with her as a family today, but I skipped class.
My family knows I've been skipping my college classes too often. Usually I only go one day a week. I lie to myself and to them, saying that I can afford to skip because the classes are just workshops, or I can get the homework done without attending. In reality I'm too embarrassed to see my teachers because I haven't explained my depression is the reason I'm struggling so hard. I'm afraid the professors think I just don't care, which is not true.
As a result, everyone thinks I'm a lazy procrastinator who sets myself up for failure and I have no one to blame but myself. My younger sister goes to class everyday, so they don't understand why I can't go as well.
I'm on medication. It helps, but not enough.
So today, my father told me we can't have a serious talk with my mother since I am not setting a good example for being self-disciplined or sticking to my commitments.
I feel like it's inappropriate for me to bring up my depression right now, because my family is already worrying about my mother's drinking. I don't think piling on will help.
I don't know what I'm looking for here, I just wanted someone to know, I guess
