Emotionally abusive mom? - April 1st 2012, 06:29 AM

The last 3 days have been especially terrible for me. Ever since thursday, i've been going into my room to cry for hours. Every little thing has been setting me off. My mom doesn't even notice me coming out, suddenly not wearing any make up and having puffy, red eyes. Today, i finally broke down and started crying and yelling at her. She didn't even bother to look away from the tv. she just waved her hand at me and said "whatever, go have your stupid little fit somewhere else" so I told her to stop treating me like I'm nobody. All she did was laugh at me.
Ever since i was about 11 (I'm 16 now) me and my mom always fight. All she cares about is school (even though i get straight A's, with an occasional B) and she never stops screaming at me about it. I have an older sister, and my parents were never like this to her. They all get along perfectly fine. My parents constantly fight about me, and they call me "out of control" and a "problem child" all the time. I have never even done anything that wrong, and I get better grades than my sister ever did, and I'm in way harder classes than she ever was.
I really can't stand it here anymore. i have depression issues, and have issues with self harm. I just really don't know what to do. My dad doesn't care. He just agrees with whatever she says and gets mad and yells at me too when anything serious comes up in conversation.
Is there any way i can leave? or get help? I have a friend i talk to, and my boyfriend, and his mom who i talk to about this. But I think i need counseling/therapy. But there's no way my parents would ever let me go, i can't pay for it myself, and my school doesn't have counselors.

If I can't stop you.... Leave me a note?

I think you should bring it up to someone who can help, through talking to the people you talk to already is a good start. Maybe ask your boyfriend's mom, or your friend if you can stay at their place for a while. -I don't want to say this exactly, but you can also go to social services about therapy, but I'm not sure how it works in the US (I'm Canadian).

I also suggest maybe just trying to put a little distance between your mom and you, for a while at least, or maybe even trying to talk to them about it. You could also try talking to your dad without your mom around, because it sounds like he's trying not to get in a bad spot with her, so talking to him without your mom around might help.

I'm sorry that things aren't going so well, but at least you only have two years until your out into the world as a legal adult, and don't have to deal with that. I hope it gets better.


I've said it once, I've said it twice, I've said it a thousand fucking times
That I'm OK, that I'm fine, that it's all just in my mind
But this has got the best of me, and I can't seem to sleep
It's not 'cause you're not with me, it's cause you never leave
