Almost Killed Yesterday - February 11th 2009, 12:59 PM

So yesterday morning I went down and as I wasnt going to be in due to different like meetings I needed some oney for trains/buses/tea. So I asked my mum if I could lend £10, she said no you always f'ing waste your money (This is cos last weekend I spent 30 quid on things for my phone, food and then theatre) So I said no I dont but I need to eat, so she goes no you f'ing dont your fart enough already you twat. At I told her to piss up and shut up. She then got a knife that she was holding (carving knife) and put it to my throat.
"IF anyone is pissing off out of this house ba'tard it is you and you'll come home one day soon and i'll have packed all your f'ing bags" When she finished this I said mum just shut up right I cant be doing with it right now. And then she starts going on about my weight and that I never go to the gym and that is a waste of money, but tbh it really isnt just cos I dont go for like one day!

I dont know what to do, I dont really want to report her as I know that it is me that has the problem, or so it seems and yeah she did almost kill me yesterday but I suppose i deserved it. I suppose I deserve to be dead. I dont know what to do, my family dont even know who I am anymore. I have changed so much in the last 4/5 months. They dont know anything,
maybe I would be best just leaving everything

Hi Jamie!
I'm really sorry you feel that you deserve to be dead - no ONE deserves to die no matter what they've done. Your mum was obviously very angry but that doesn't give her a right to threaten you and almost kill you, and for that i think you need to speak to someone about her. Has this happened on more than one occassion? What about speaking to a counsellor and arranging for some family counselling sessions - it's evident that there is tension in your household and if you could possibly relieve that tension by talking through all of your problems instead of just shouting at one another then you shall get to the bottom of everything and hopefully work out ways in which you could all get along with one another in order to resolve those issues.

If money is a problem, perhaps you can get a job(if you haven't already got one) or apply for EMA or try and get some financial help - i'm sure there are help centres for this sort of thing.

Good luck!

& it's just like she's in another world.

Hey Jamie,

You do not deserve to die. And if your mom was acting that way, then it is her with the problem and not you. It is not right to threaten people, no matter the circumstance. I'm sorry you are feeling that way about this, but remember that you deserve life just as much as everyone else.

There are people you can talk about this too. Are there counselors at your school you could talk to? If you are uncomfortable with reporting this, then someone else can do it for you. Or you could just go to talk about how you're doing at home and stuff.

If the situation is dangerous at home and you are fearing for your safety or your life, then you really do need to call someone. Do not hesitate. You should feel safe at home.

If you are low on money, maybe you could look into getting a part time job? That way your mom wouldn't be bugging you about that all the time.

I really hope this gets sorted out and you feel better.
If you want to talk some more, let me know.

The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?

JAMIE!!!! i love yooh darll and u don't deserve to die!!!
There are places wich will help you and your mum out!
What she did was wrong! Totaly wrong and she need to learn to talk to you without expressing that much anger! Maybe try and get a job so you don't have to keep on relying on your mum for money?
i'm sorry i'm not that much of a help ut if you ever need to talk you know you can PM me or talk to me on msn!
loves x

You don't know about my past, and
I don't have a future figured out.
And maybe this is going too fast.
And maybe it's not meant to last,

Hey there Jamie
I'm sorry that you feel that you shouldn't be alive, and I'm sorry about what your mom did/does to you, it's not fair at all. But know that you are not alone and that absolutely no one here thinks that you don't deserve to be alive. If you didn't deserve to be alive, you wouldn't be. Simple as that.

I personally think that you should talk to someone about this. Someone at school, a teacher or counselor, or just someone in your family who will listen and give you some support. I know that it is tough to talk, but I know there is at least someone in your life who will listen. You deserve to feel relaxed and at ease at home and not always be walking on thin ice afraid someone could get angry and do something like this again, which is why I really think you should talk to someone who can help.

Best of luck, and stay strong. xx

If you ever need someone to talk to feel free to PM me, I'll do my best to try & help.

A lonely soul in a land of broken hearts

hey jamie.

there's no way that you deserve to feel this bad .. sometimes parents can flare up ( we all learn that the hard way) but the fact is that all parents love us and care for us.. some just show it the wrong way. however, thats nothing a good heart-to-heart chat wont solve just remember that, no matter what, there's always a part inside deep deep down that really loves you.

in case this is all getting too much, you have to tell someone you know about this in order to get emotional support. IT HELPS to have somebody who listens and encourages you.. and no matter what you get, some advice or just a hug.. it'll always help you feel better. and feeling better is definitely one step towards getting over this episode.

i definitely support the heart-to-heart talk option, as all doubts can be cleared when you and your family move emotionall closer again remember that you also have all of us to support and help you out, no matter what

Those who have went through more pain than everyone else, and want to protect anyone and everyone they know and care for from that pain, are stronger than everyone.

we come, we help, we stick and never leave. pm me anytimeee!

Don't listen to them. Your parents are obviously not giving you a fair living environment. Your parents can be wrong and I would argue that parents are wrong more often then teens.

Get by with your parents things don't have to be nice but just do what you can to get by with the littlest controversy.

If anyone deserves to die it would be them. They don't support you they don't encourage you. All you are being is what they say you are. Don't pay attention to them if they say your wrong say your bad. Even if you are no parent should insult and discourage their child like that. Try to find some people that are friendly, encourage you and will have a positive influence on your life.

If I were you I would get a good job and get out of there as soon as I could and when I was successful I wouldn't look back.
