I need help getting out of this situation - February 16th 2009, 06:30 PM

My mother triggers me, constantly. I have gotten very depressed and am finding it very difficult to concentrate in school and have almost dropped out already only a few weeks after I started my first semester. Already attempted suicide a few times. I have numerous cuts on my body. I can't live like this any longer.

Is there ANYONE I can contact to get me out of this situation? I can't call the police because they only deal with immediate abuse, and it has to be physical(kind of hard to prove mental abuse), but she hasn't hit me in a while and is smart enough not to. That and she is a very good manipulator, my sister called the police on her once because my mom hit her, and she got away with it and my sister ended up looking like the bad guy. And I don't think I can report it on the abuse hot line because I don't think you can report yourself as the youth in danger.
I don't care if I am taken to a orphanage(if they still have those), or a foster home, or where ever. I can't wait it out till I am 18, I've tried that for the past two years. I just don't can't be here any longer. Please, does anyone know what I can do?

Hey Dasha :

I'm sorry you have to live like that. But if it's really an issue and it's really messing with your school work you can certainly tell a guidance counselor in the school. They will get you back on track and help you get the help you need. Not to mention will reccomend things to get you out of the house and stuff so you don't have to deal with that stuff as often. I really hope this helps, and I hope you can get through this.

Take care, please. and Don't be afraid to talk to me =] I'd love to talk about this stuff with you anytime you want.


So where did everyone go?
And you don't even know
So don't pretend that you do

It's just a set up
For all the failures
Always playing after something cool

Hey, if you feel in danger of hurting yourself or are thinking about suicide call samaritins or similar suicide hotlines where you live.
To report your mum, try to talking to your school guidance counciller, or maybe a teacher at school who could refer you to one
take care,

Re: I need help getting out of this situation - February 16th 2009, 07:16 PM

I don't have a phone I can call anyone from unless I am home alone, and I am never triggered when I am alone. Also I am currently going to college, all the counselor's they have are just for educational guidance I think. Is there really nothing I can do but suffer through it? It just doesn't seem right. A counselor wont tell me anything I don't know already anyways. I know what needs to be done emotionally/educationally, I am not stupid. But I have tried everything I can to cope with this. The only solution I can see is to get out of the situation.

Hi there Dasha,

You should still check up with the guidance office about this. I'm pretty sure every college has counselors for school work as well as emotional support. Make sure you look into it and find out if your college offers that as well.

Counselors can report this for you if you are unable to. They can get in contact with foster care if they think there is reason to. Just let them know everything that has gone on and ask them what you can do about it. They will know more about it and what is available in your city than we will.

If counselors are unable to contact the fostering organization for you, it would be a good idea to look up the number online or in a phone book. The least your school can do is let you use the phone for this. I'm sure they'll be able to do more.

If you want to talk about this, please feel free to send me a PM at any time. Manipulation is difficult and it can help a lot to talk to someone about it.

Nat.
