Hey Rebecca,

Sorry to hear you're going through a rough time. I think what you need to do, is break up with your boyfriend. I know it may be hard, but it's for your safety. Even if he isn't abusing you all the time now, things always get worse. It's not worth staying in an unhealthy and violent relationship. There are many other guys out there who will treat you right. As for your mom, do you live with her? If she abuses you, you can always call the police and have them sort things out. No one deserves to be treated like this. If you don't live with her, I would advise not seeing her often. And when you do see her, make sure you don't go alone. Go with a friend or another family member who knows about the situation.

Cutting may seem like a release, but you really just feel worse after. Every time you cut, you are tearing down your self-esteem. Don't forget to use our alternatives sticky in the SH forum for ways to divert your attention rather than focusing on cutting. Also, it's important to tell people you are suicidal so they can help you. Whether it's a friend, family member, or counselor, it's important to let others in on how you are feeling. Don't be ashamed of it, people will help you. And remember, you're not going to feel this way forever, you will get through this.

Stay strong,


Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

Hey there Rebecca,

I'm sorry that you're in such an awful situation right now.

I think that it's very important to talk to someone if you're facing abuse. It must be difficult being abused by two different people who are meant to be close to you. It's not your fault and you do not deserve to be hurt. You deserve to be healthy, safe and happy. I would strongly suggest that you talk to someone that you can trust and who can help you. You need to keep yourself safe, Rebecca.

You also need to talk to someone about how you're feeling emotionally. Feeling suicidal is very serious and you need to keep yourself safe. Cutting is not a safe coping mechanism and there are other alternatives you can use. I would like to insist that you do reach out to someone about how you're feeling because although it may feel like these bad feelings are in control, they're not. You are in control and you can get through this.

Take care.
