Well i'm wondering if this is emotional abuse or not. At the start it isn't, further down is where i'm asking so please carry on reading it all... Yesterday once I got in the car from school my mum started telling me how down I was making her what with my suicide attempts, self harm and running away. She was asking me for reassurance. I didn't really know what she wanted me to say. As most of these conversations, it ended in an arguement. She kept asking me if it was her fault. I'd never blame her, although i know my distance from her caused some of it. She kept shouting at me and I finally said (in these exact words) "We're not as close as some mum's and daughters but that's just the way it is sometimes. I know I pushed you away but I don't know why. I know it's my fault". Then I went out to get away. Later when my dad came home, he came straight up to my room and said "i'm so ashamed of you. I hope you're ashamed of yourself, i've had your mother sobbing on the phone to me after you said that. How could you be so unfeeling. I have to get out of here before I really lose my temper with you". Later when I went downstairs my little sister tried to hug me and my dad told her to leave me alone and ignore me. That part really upset me. He's trying to isolate me. None of my family are really talking to me now. Apart from my sister. No more than they have to anyway. Is this emotional abuse? I wouldn't mind it so much but I really don't think I did anything wrong... Thanks for any replies.
