idk mom and food? - May 23rd 2014, 02:24 AM

My mom knows about my issues with food etc but I don't think she realizesthat it's still something I deal with on a daily basis. Things that bother me now didn't when I was recovered.

Sometimes she responds to me in a way that I percieve as really harsh and mean. Then I end up getting really upset and sad. I'll start to feel guilty and bash myself, and ultimately have suicidal ideation. I usually leave to my room and give her the cold shoulder for several hours.

Right now, I'm on the verge of tears and rocking because of this. I logically know that she probably isn't doing in purposefully but I actually believe that she is doing it intentionally. Sometimes she apologizes if I bring it up though.

I just don't know what to do. I'm overreacting and I just hate myself for being like this.

My ears are always open. If you want to vent, chit-chat, anything, just send me a message

Every drop in the ocean counts.

Hi there, Donné! I hope you're feeling a little better.

It must be tough having a mom that doesn't understand. Do you think you could bring up this problem with her? I think it would be a good idea to sit down with her and explain that you've been having trouble. I also think it would be a good idea to reach out to her and then hopefully get some help from a counselor or a therapist. Getting professional help would be beneficial because professionals can help you develop good coping mechanisms and help you get to the root of what's causing you to have these issues.

When you're upset, you might want to try to reach out. You could call a hotline or a friend and talk out how you are feeling. You might also want to visit the TH chat room or Live Help when it's online. If you ever feel like you are in danger, reach out to a parent or call your local authorities. You don't deserve to feel like this and things can get better.

I hope that this helped and let me know if you ever need anything.

Find your light in a new dawn.
