I've been cutting for months. My mom didnt even notice. And i doubt that she even cares. And she'd the one most of the time that makes me feel like i need to escape life and all the shit that happens in it. Sometimes she'll flip out on me when i do nothing. and sometimes she has a problem and drinks waaayyy to much. She hurts me to sometimes. Well all the time. But physically she hurts me sometimes. Every time she calls me a selffish bitch. And especially when she calls me fat. Because i already have an eating disorder... and her saying that doesnt help with me wanting to not eat at all. I'm always fighting with someone. Her, my brother, my friends- always someone. And i kinda hate it. I know, i'm screwed up... eating disorder...suicidal thoughts....cutting. But that doesnt mean she should totally desert me and never comfort me. Oh and i have no one to talk to anymore... i hate my guidance counseler in school since she told my mom. my best friend isnt my friend anymore. her mom hates me... and i dont trust most people... i need to know what to do. i feel so helpless and lonely. I wish i didnt fight with my mom every day or want to kill myself or want to cut myself... any advice?

My gut reaction Ashlee is to tell you to contact CPS. You need to get out of the situation as your mother is hurting you and judging from your post, that may be the primary reason you feel the way you do. She has no right to treat you this way and I think this constitutes abuse.

In your type of situation I would recommend family counseling but I think you are in a pretty tight position where you wouldn't be able to get this. Considering your situation I think you should get out of this mess first before trying to mend ties with your mother later on. Then most likely things will start getting better for you.

Something (or multiple things) brought you to this point... and I have to agree with what was said above. Your mom's abuse may have been the big factor that led to your depression/suicidal thoughts, self-harm, and eating disorder. Before you can begin to treat those problems, you need to eliminate the thing or things that are causing all of this to happen.
