    Is there a reason, I suppose is the first question to ask?

    Believe me, you don't want to purposefully detach yourself from your parents. Worst mistake I made.

    ive emotionally detached myself from my mum about 2 years ago, now i just feel resentment and anger towards her. it wasn't done purposely but if you want to physically detach yourselves from them don't stay with them it does the trick.

    For reasons I cant specify in detail. But all I know is that it is hurting me emotionally and mentally to be around them. Its affecting my education, social life and the way I act in general.

    Its making me want to hurt myself and I know wouldn't want to do that.

    Severing your umbilical cord would be a good start I think

    I do not think anyone here could give sensible advice ...
    Discuss the matter with someone you can confide away from TSR first.

    I guess, for me, its just one specific parent. But if I choose to detach myself from them, my other parent will never talk to me for certain.

    You may want to consider getting a professional opinion on the matter - talk to a therapist if needed.

    I don't really know a proper answer...maybe if you just talk to her as a matter of a formality and show no emotion towards her...
