Mom Problems. - November 14th 2009, 04:42 PM

So ever since my grandmother died it's been non stop fighting with my mother. Things will be good for like a week or so and then it's a battle of words. And her verbal abusing me. In some way. First she starts by saying I make her my slave. I'm lazy and I never do anything. And that I'm never gonna go anywhere in life. Then we just don't talk for a while. And then she'll see me go to eat something and she'll say "Do you really think you should eat that? You're getting pretty fat." I'm only 16! Who the hell tells a 16yr old that's only maybe 15-20lbs over weight that their fat?! Oh and a 16yr old who's just trying to build up her self esteem?! I swear, sometime it's like she only wanted me so she can make me do things she doesn't want to do. She's always given me so much responsibility it's crazy. Like what 8 year old do you know that has to do their own wash? And everyone always say "Oh I love your mom." "She's so nice." "Wow you're lucky your mom is so cool." But it's like they don't see what I see. And I just don't know what to do anymore. Because it's gotten so bad that she'll tell me we don't have money to buy me a $15 pair of jeans and then go spend $80 on a carton of cigarettes. And I guess I can understand that she's addicted but come on. I'm your daughter for crying out loud.

She's completely killed my self esteem. And she won't let me go see a therapist for my stress & school phobia because she thinks "I'm stronger then all this." And I'm so lost. I have no idea what to do. I'm sorry this post is so long but I don't know where else to turn.

hi thischick. im jamie. im seventeen, and i dotn really get along with my mom well at all either. its not as bad as yur situation, but i feel for yoo. i think yoo should go see yur school therapist or school counselor. if yur mom doesnt care enough about yoo to giv yoo the support and lov yoo need, especially at such a difficut age as this, then yoo need ask somewhere else. rememeber, there is always soemone there to help. whther yo reaslise it or not, whther yur mom cares or not. if she doesnt rest assured, soemoen else does. yur nevr alone in anything. <3 hop it helps.

Hi Jamie. I've tried talking to the people at my school, and they've met my mom so they assume I'm over reacting. Things are getting better now. But I know it's only for about a week. And after that, I'm back to square one. And I'm honestly scare. She's the major reason for my cutting. And I don't wanna get back to that :/

you just can't take the me, out of me. and that is what i need the world to see.
