  • I don't want to Live at Home anymore

    I've been terrified of my dad ever since I was 12, I'm 14 now and it's gotten worse. Sometime in January/February, he had hit my mom, so we had lived with my older brother and his wife for something weeks. I'm afraid that he'd hurt me, and no one seems to understand that he's scary. Then sometime this summer I forcefully kissed by an older guy. I told him my age before hand, he was off of the Cruise ship and I was working alone in the store, so that made me more afraid of my dad. I Don't feel safe at home, I can barely sleep, now all I want to do is sleep the weekend away so I can get it over with and I can get to school. I just want to be left alone but then I don't, I just don't get along with my mom, I don't know why. My Uncle is staying with us, because he cheated on my aunt, the girl dumped him. Then a bunch of other stuff is happening. I was mostly alone this summer, so I'm used to being alone. My siblings ignore me, and I got backhanded by my sister because I said a bad word, I wasn't really talking to her. I wasn't feeling well, and was really tired too so of course I didn't feel like cleaning. No body in my house, or family understands me. It doesn't help that I'm depressed, and it's been getting worse. I made a mistake by telling my 'Best Friend', because she had told my mom and my mom told a lady at church. That's something you don't do! If you just search up on how to help a depressed person, it'll tell you what to do. I was looking for help, but then I quickly regretted it. She had just made everything worse, the only time I actually felt happy and slept good was when I was away from my House and Family. Which is sad, I think/guess. I just don't know what to do, I've felt like running away a few times but never actually did. I just don't want to live at Home anymore, but then I'd feel bad. My parent's are getting along, but I just don't want to be here anymore. I know how I can help myself, but I can't. I've told my sister that I was afraid of my dad, and she said that I didn't need to be. I know that I don't need to be, but I just am. He makes me hug him and kiss him on the cheek too, and last time I didn't do that he snapped at me, and I was terrified. Even my friends are afraid of him, I just need some help and some advice.
