I made a mistake and am now being shamed for it, I went out with a couple of friends because it was the night of my senior prom, there was drinking and a lot of other things and sometime in the night someone slipped something into my drink, I blacked out and when I came back to my senses or as much sense as I could, I was at home with my father looking down at me telling me how much of an idiot I was I twisted my ankle and might have a slight concussion but am not allowed to go to the hospital for it bc I did this to myself, I made the mistake of going out for one last hurrah before I graduated and now I'm being shamed and shunned for it, what do I do? How do I deal with this?
@Catalaya22 I have been where you are at right now. I know it is very hard to be an adult today, but you must get out from under your family. If there is a Youth Services in Mount Vernon please call them. They can arrange for temporary housing. It can't be long until you graduate. If you can trust a school counselor ask them for help. There are a lot of people here who care about you and have been in your situation with a family of believers. If I can help you please message me.

Just own up to it.
Welcome to the club. I’m 52 and have blacked out many times. It happened just a few weeks ago with others in the same state of drunkenness. Don’t let it bother you, shake it off and move on. Wait, what? Do you know that someone roofied your drink? Were you raped? How did you get home? A visit to the hospital may be the best thing for your foot and maybe a drug test along with a rape kit.
I've known adults who left a drink unattendended for a moment and someoen spiked it when their backi was turned. You are a victim.
Your dad is beign unreasonable, not to mention irresponsible about getting your injuries checked out. If you brok a leg, woudl he not take you in because you "did it to yourself?"
Did you asked us before you went out what may go wrong? Cant find your post with your question... I reckon you knew all your answers then. Not trying to be Rude or Evil but you want us to look at you as a child now when your acting as a grown up backfired at you in your face. Are you showing any remorse for your actions... not to us... we are not your keepers... remorse to your Father. Was he on your mind when you went out? You can't switch back and forth child/adult/child when you screw up. Life do not function like that.
