katie- don't spread false information. what she is talking about IS abuse! it's mental abuse and obviously is very harmful if she's already tried commiting suicide. my dad used to abuse me both mentally and physically and let me tell you they bopth take a humongeous toll out of your life. it was very hard but at least my mother divorced him when she found out. you should find another adult you trust and taolk to them. with it out in the open your mother will have to be willing to work it out with you. pehaps instead of something as drastic as going into foster care(which might as well happen) you can get away with some phsychiatric help for both you and your mother. good luck and stay strong. it's your life- she has no right commenting about it in those ways...

My mum used to be like that, and I know how hard it can hurt you. Even now she brings things up like my weight or my exam results (4 all u who know what they are I only got 3 GCSEs). On my 16th birthday I OD'ed. Its the worst thing I ever did cuz I caused my friends and family a lot more pain than I did myself.
Its not really abuse but It does feel like it. My mum got better, but it took time, I had to make myself feel I was worth something before I even started talking to her. you gotta love ureself before ne1 else will.
Also plz dont feel u have 2 lose weight because of what ne1 else says, if its your choice great, if not leave it for now.

Call the police. If she is abusing u u can get put in a foster home or the home of another relative. It sound like your mother has a drug or drinking problem if shes that bad. Also, don't commit suicide. That is never the answer. Pride yourself in the fact that u may have tried to commit suicide, but u didn't go through with it. Remember that there is always sommething to live for, even if its something small. Also, try getting involved in a youth group at a local church/mosque/synagogue. God/Jesus (or Alla, if you're muslim) can help u get through this part of you're life.
