I really need help... losing hope. - April 5th 2010, 12:19 AM

I have absolutely no hope anymore.

My parents think just because their kids are teenagers, they have to treat them badly to "keep them in check."

I have to admit, I do give them attitude... sometimes.
ONLY when they disrespect me.

They will always tell me I'm a bitch, that I am rude, and that I am a different person than I used to be.

I have NO idea who I use to be.

And today, they pushed me over the edge.

It was a simple, stupid fight.

I asked them why people use a certain ingredient in food, and they flipped out... saying I was disrespectful, rude, and so on.

They sent me up to my room and I simply couldn't take it anymore.
I cut myself for the first time.

And it felt SO good. It also got my anger out.

I cant understand this.
I've cried in the past year more than I have ever cried in my life.

And I think of suicide more often than a kid should.
I need help.

Hello there,
Do not hold your circumstances against yourself. You should not allow your crazy family to destroy your future. No son or daughter should ever have to take abuse from a parent and just live with it like you are. It is obvious that family counseling is needed in your situation, and I suggest that you go seek that. If your torment becomes too much where you feel that you can no longer handle the situation, there is an easy way out, but it is not death nor self-harm. I suggest contacting law enforcement or the Department of Children and Families, because what it sounds like you are going through constitutes abuse and can be punishable through the legal system. In the end it may be better for you to stay with another family if yours does not change.

try to give your parents a little more respect even know they don't even deserve it. You really need a different coping skill because cutting yourself is not Okay.

cutting isnt good, but her parents do NOT souund like they should get more respect from her.

i cant really help you here, but private message me. im going thru the same stuff you are.


"Now at the end of everyday I lie awake at night and wait
To feel the wires of my brain get cut and quietly rearranged, and
Hear my beaten heart exclaim, 'Still, I refuse to let her go.'"

So we escape to our mistakes for they wait patiently for us.
Oh, how they always wait for me.

If my fear has kept me here only my fear can set me free."
