Depending on how many were added, there is a chance of fuel lines/filter getting clogged. Other than that, you wouldn't have any problems. A one time occurence shouldn't be that bad. I would run the tank empty, refill with clean gas AND change my crankcase oil. Mothballs are made of D-chlorobenze which, in a liquid solution, is a solvent that can break down the lube characteristics of motor oil.

Who do you turn to for help?

Who you turn to for help usually depends on the type of problem you are having. If you need someone to talk to, you can turn to a good friend, but for homework help you need to choose a teacher, tutor, or someone who is doing well in and understands that subject. If you have a serious problem and are still living with your parents, you could turn to them. It's very likely that they will find out about the problems anyway, and most parents will appreciate you coming to them. For problems in relationships, a good friend who will give you sensible advice, not just tell you what you want to hear, is a good choice of someone to turn to. For more serious problems like abuse, there are professionals who could help, especially if you need to leave the situation immediately.
