Exclamation First Day/Night - June 9th 2015, 03:18 AM

Hello, My name is Johnetta. I'm 16 years old, and I've been cutting since eighth grade (2012), and I've been suicidal since Fifth grade (2008). I've been bullied my entire life, and that's really shattered my self-esteem. I was adopted at the age of five and my adoptive mom is very overprotective, not to mention that when she's angry she says the worst things imaginable, and I've made it 12 years dealing with it, but now I think I've reached my breaking point because cutting isn't having the same effect as before, and I really think I don't belong here, and I'm ready to give up, and take my final breath. Well thanks for listening!

Hi, Johnetta!

Welcome to TeenHelp, I'm Ellie. Remember me? We talked a bit in chat. I'm very sorry to hear about what you've been through and are currently struggling with. I really hope that you find some helpful support here at TeenHelp. On that note, you're welcome to message me anytime if you need someone to talk to, I don't mind!

Take care and keep holding on. I haven't been through some of the things you have so I can't say I fully understand, but I do know that you seem like a really nice person and that your life is worth a lot more than you know, and you're more important that the way your adoptive mom makes you feel. Hope you're feeling okay right now.

Hey Johnetta,
I'm sorry to hear about what your going through, but luckily there are people here who are willing to help you through the pain. Don't give up just yet, things can still change and get better.

TeenHelp really is a fantastic community where you can get support, have people cheer you on in your recovery, and work through whatever issues you may be facing. I really hope you decide to stick around to see what this site has to offer and that you find everything you need here.

Take care!

Hi, there, I'm sorry to hear you've been going through a rough time. Is there anyone you can talk to about the way your adoptive mum treats you? Don't be afraid to use the resources TeenHelp provides and use the forum to ask for support or advice. Hope to see you around!

First off, welcome to TH, Johnetta I'm sorry to hear what you are going through - it sounds as if the relationship between you and your mother is complicated, but self-harming will only worsen the situation and it appears you may have already discovered that.

It sounds like your mother cares a lot for you, but perhaps is dealing with some issues of her own, which causes her to lash out. This is no excuse, of course, but sometimes people say things that are out of line when they aren't thinking clearly.

I hope you find the support you are seeking here. TH is a great site with a lot of very good people willing to help. Best wishes.
