Please help me. ): - June 9th 2009, 11:55 PM

I don't know where else to go. My boyfriend doesn't really understand what I'm going through. I need help. I'll start from the top.

My mom got laied off a couple weeks ago, and ever since then she likes to take it out on us. She screams at me and my brother constantly, saying we're using a tone when we're not. I try and be nice to her but she's never nice back. She has retreated to a bottle of wine a night. She goes out every weekend. And just today, less than an hour ago, I asked her where my Sims 2 game was because she was the last one who was playing it. She said it as under the CD player, so i go and look there and don't see it, I tell her that and she totally freaks out. "JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP! ALL YOU EVER FUCKING DO IS RUN YOUR FUCKING MOUTH, SO SHUT THE FUCK UP AND GO DO YOUR CHOURS!". I feel so lost. I need help. I've cut, I've had thoughts about running away, I just want someone to love me. Please, please help me.

I'm sorry your mom has been acting like that. Has she always been like that or did it change after she got laid off. Sometimes when adults are under stress they snap, just like anybody us. They're human and they have methods good or bad to cope as well. Have you tried sitting her down and talking to her about how you feel and how she is making you feel. If not, try that. Communcation is the best route to go!

I'm sure people love you! Even if you don't feel loved. Friends, family, etc.

Don't cut yourself! It's a very addicting habit and it's not worth it. Pain can't cure pain. So, try not to resort to tha behavior as a coping method again. Running away isn't going to help the problem but make it worse. Running away never helps because you're not facing your problem head on, which is what you need to try to do. I understand wanting to get out and away from the atmosphere and that's perfectly okay, but just go spend a couple of days at a friends house and make sure your mom know's where your at !

I know this hard but you can get through this! Hold on! If you need somebody to talk to PM me. <3

when life is in discord; praise ye the Lord

keep your faith alive.
we're not alone <3

Hey Peyton

First of all, welcome to TeenHelp (I do like your name by the way).

I'm sure people do love you Peyton. It's hard when a central figure in your life like your mom is having a negative effect on you right now. You do say you need help. Perhaps you can get other adults opinions on this. Do you have any neighbours you can talk to or any relatives you can call? How about friends that you can confide in? I do think that having someone else in the house with you can help against your mom lashing out at you. Maybe you could talk to a counselor at your school about this. They are great sounding boards in order to let your feelings out.

Do you think she may be addicted to alcohol or is in the process of being addicted? If so, I would highly suggest that you tell her to get help (something along the lines of Alcoholics Anonymous). I think that it would be good if there are a group of people supporting her in order to help her identify her problems, and then take action to help them. Your mom is having a tough time, but it never makes it okay that she is taking it out on you.

You are loved Peyton. PM me if you do need to talk. I hope that the situation gets better for you and your mom.
