Sorry to hear about this. My mom also grounded me when she first found out about my cutting. She also took all my stuff of me :/ It didn't help at all. I think it was because she didn't know how to handle it.
Could you try talking to her when shes calmer and explain that punishing you is not going to help. Instead you need her to be supportive and helpful.
If you want to talk im here


xxxxxxx Take care xxxxxxx

If you ever need ANYTHING just ask (:

Hey there.

I am really sorry that your mum has grounded you because you have started self harming again. I am against that because I feel like that she is punishing you foir self harming and you shouldn't be punished for it at all. You don't do it for the fun of it. You're hurting and you deserve support and advice while you're going through this. Perhaps you could try talking to your mum? Or you could write her a letter. I know sometimes talking to people can be really hard. Perhaps you can just explain to her how you are feeling right now and why you self harm and how you don't like that she has punished you for doing so.

I don't know whats going on for you right now but I just want to make sure you know we're here for you if you ever need anyone or just need to rant. You don't have to be alone in this! You're worth so much.

Keep smiling.
Jessie,

Although I haven't told my mum, I think that is how mine would react. Maybe you should explain it to her and show her some websites like this one : http://www.distanthealer.co.uk/self_harm.htm
As a cutter I am understanding of you, but many people who have not had these urges do not understand it. If you were a parent and didn't know about self harm think about how you would react, the many different ways. She may not know what to do and think by taking things away you will feel forced to stop. She may not understand why you feel sad or whatever the reason is for your cutting. I'm sure all this is out of worry and ignorance. If you explain it to her she should come round.

If you ever need to talk, PM me! Go in Peace!


When life gives you one thousand reasons to cry, show life one million reasons to SMILE!

Re: grounded?? - March 22nd 2011, 11:39 AM

Thats what my mom thought when she first found out. She called me a attention seeking bitch and grounded me.
When she had calmed down i explained to her that i don't want attention i just wanted to stop feeling so bad and horrible. I explained if i wanted attention i would go run down the street naked or something not hurt myself and then hide it. Wouldn't i? This made her think and she came around after a week or so and ungrounded me and apologised. She said she simply just didn't understand why i would do it. It was so unlike me. I am sure your mom cares she just will not understand about it. Try talking and stay strong <3
If you have any other questions or want to chat or anything feel free to pm me <3 x
