argh! feel so alone! - March 9th 2009, 09:10 PM

hi everyone
well i know from other threads that people feel like their parents dont understand them and stuff, and i feel exactly the same! my mum always puts me down by calling me fat and stuff. ive just come on my computer crying because i'd had a really bad day at school, and i'd come home hungry and wanting some comfort food so i started to eat a sausage roll that my mum said i could have. i wasn't even thinking about what i was eating, i just wanted it, and then as soon as i'd bit into it my mum said "i thought you were a vegetarian? look at you mrs-animal rights and then you go scoffing a sausage roll".

it felt as though she was waiting for me to bite into it so she could play a trick on me. its like this all the time and im sick to death of it. and ages ago i told her about my abuse and she acts as if she doesnt care.

i cant talk to my dad either cos he's never here, hes always away working, and even when hes home he doesnt seem to care about me or my brother. and its not like any of my teachers would care.

sorry for rambling on, but ive really had enough of it. i feel so alone.

Hey there,

Don't feel alone about this- you are not alone! I have felt exactly the same way, so do not worry about it.

Your mom really isn't being very nice, and really it isn't productive to say things like that. There is a difference between concern for what you are eating and just being mean. She is being mean. Ignore her and don't let it bother you. It's hard, I know, but you've got to try.

Look into preparing some vegetarian snacks yourself, then your mom can't sneak anything you don't want to eat into your food. Make healthier choices on your own.

You aren't alone. PM me if you ever want to talk.


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?
