Unhappy My mom wants me to change - April 16th 2011, 10:15 AM

My mom wants me to stop cutting, as so do I. But cutting kinda is a part of me now. I'm just cutting, not trying to kill myself. She's leaving me now cause she thinks I don't want her around which she got wrong by the way. and now it only makes me wanna kill myself. I can't pluck up the courage to talk to her or to any body else. It's only driving me mad. I'm also having problems at school cause I'm the only cutter there. Mom told me that she'll send me away to a mental hospital because I was already crazy so please tell me if I am crazy as she says and I will willingly go. I also want to help myself so that my mom wont go away anymore.

Hi, welcome to TeenHelp. You're certainly not the only cutter here so if you want advice about that from people who know what it's like, try out the SelfHarm forum. As far as your mom goes, you've gotta see this from her perspective. You're her baby (yeah, even though you're 14) and it hurts for parents to see their kids hurting and especially physically harming themselves. I don't know you well enough to be the judge of your sanity, but maybe a better place than a mental facility would be a rehab. Honestly, everythng is up to you. Cutting is an adiction, but it's also a choice. Every cut is a decision. It's completely in your power to choose not to cut. It's difficult and scarry, but it's for your best.

Im really sorry that your mom thinks that you should go to a mental hospital. I agree with Blair, I dont know you well enough to know if you should go. But you really need to see someone about your cutting addiction. Maybe that would help. But if you think its best for you to go to a mental hospital, by all means please go. Especially if your mom is going to leave you. Does she mean she is going to leave you all alone or do you have a Dad? Im not sure. If you do believe you are having problems maybe talking to a personal counselor will help. If not, then I guess you should go to a rehab center. I went there to visit my brother when he was in there for smoking pot. It wasnt a bad place at all. It was a very nice center.
I hope that I could help you in anyway ♥
