Dad priorities

Today, as he was going out, I asked my father if he stop by the store and buy some tampons for me and toilet paper for the house, because we have been out for the last 5 days. He came home with a 30-pack of beer and cigarettes instead. I just started my time of the month and we have no more money. FML

Hi, first of all, don't be ashamed to ask for help...I'm sure a friend would help you buy some stuff. Planned Parenthood, other health clinics, and Women's Shelters havw them for free. Otherwise, actual rags/washcloths can work. Rip up some old t-shirts if you have to. And of course, your school nurse. I'm sorry this has happened and if you are under 18 does count as neglect. After this, I'd recommend getting a part time job to have your own funds. Good luck and I repeat PLEASE ask someone for help, because I can't imagine a person who would say no or judge you.

Not to accuse someone I don’t know anything about, but I personally wouldn’t trigger someone with such bad addiction issues by bleeding all over their belongings. Sounds like an excuse to get violent with the person who did it.

Also, regarding any child abuse/neglect arising from his actions, calling the police is not always a viable option for the disadvantaged person (not going to assume OP is a victim of anything if I don’t know the whole story).

If in school, ask the nurse or a female teacher for help. If not, ask a neighbor or friend. Situations sucks, but sometimes you just gotta roll with the punches until it improves :/
