No, it's not supposed to be like that when you're 15, especially the part about your supporting yourself and your family. You have a lot on your shoulders for your age.

Things will eventually get better for you, you have to believe it.

Are you still going to school while working? Planning on going to college? Sounds like it might be a good change for you.

I hear you. I was that way too. It eventually gets better but make sure you know there is a line between helping and just giving. From what I've learned, you have to help yourself and take care of yourself in order to help others. Being 21, it took me so long to realize that and to actually start doing that. When I was 15, I got a job and helped support my family too. I remember I'd just keep giving and giving because we were poor and needed to pay bills. I realize that its suppose to be my parents job to take care of me to support me not the other way around. I just recently graduated high school, it was so embarrassing that everyone of my high school graduated right when they were suppose to and I just got my GED after 4 years. My family really dragged me down and burned me out. Please know when to say enough is enough and even if you have to get out of the house and move do it. Eventually this stress will play a BIG factor to your health. Life would get in the way like mine did with my family and before you know it, you could have a delay on graduating. Hope this helps.

Hang in there. I will get better.
I too had to work at 15 to help out paying bills. We just immigrated and had nothing, starting with zero. My parents were honestly doing all they could and simply couldn\'t make ends meet. My brothers and I all worked to help out. Things gradually got better and I completed my school while my brother did not. As long as they weren\'t making you do this for \"Bad\" reasons, I believe a family should stick together to ride things out.
