Angry Shes making it hell! - July 13th 2011, 04:17 AM

So i told my mom about my sh. Well she went off the deep end, shes gone through my whole room, taking all my bobby pins, blades and anything thats hard plastic. I am no longer allowed to close my door ever. I cant sit with my legs crossed without her making me uncross them to make sure im not"hiding" anything. Every 10 mins she comes and checks on me, and badgers me with questions. Shes driving me nuts!!!!! I dont even feel like a human being anymore I thought this was going to help! this sucks if she keeps it up Im permanently going to move in with my dad because i cant live with this!!

First of all, congrats on telling your mom. I've never had the guts to do it, because I'm afraid of what is happening to you, so you're much stronger and braver than I am.
Second of all, communication. Tell her this is bothering you, and that it is not helping you not feel better, but making you feel like a criminal. If she cares, she'll listen. If she really wants you to stop, as it seem she does, she'll want the best for you.
Good luck!

Like Traci said, congratulations on telling your mom. I'd would kill for the courage to do that but I know based on conversations that we've had about people who do it, she would go off the deep end too.

To try and help you out, I'd tell her that this is all bothering you a lot. Try to tell her you need her to trust you and be supportive rather than an annoyance. Personally, I think the situation can be fixed and if you move out then I think it will drive a large gap betweenvyou and your mom. Then again, I don't know your relationship with your mom.

So I hope I could help. PM me if you need anything.

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts,
And I looked and behold: a pale horse.
And his name, that sat on him, was Death.
And Hell followed with him.

That's great that you worked up the courage to tell your mom. I know how difficult that decision can be to make, so I'm really sorry to hear that your mom is acting like that.

I definitely think it would help to maybe talk to her about how she's acting. She might not realize that she's being that overbearing and ridiculous. It does seem like she's concerned about you and cares about what's going on, so maybe she'd be understanding if you let her know how you feel about how she's taking it.

Good luck with your mom! Feel free to PM me if you ever need anything.

I'm sorry to hear that, but i would tell my mom that its making me feel as if i went to the loony bin and its not helping me and that she can trust me because im trying to stop, but you have more courage than i ever will because my mom would take everything except my matteress and beding and lock me in my room with no way to get out...
