  • my parents are very abusive please help

    I really just need to talk about this because its starting to get worse.

    Im 15 years old and live with my parents. I wouldnt say im a very good student I had lots of problems with my school and have bad grades. Its somewhat because of my mental illnesses and just me as a person. I was never good in a school enviorment. Ive had problems with drugs in the past but not much anymore. I know i dont sound like a good kid but i really stopped trying because im so depressed all the time. I also suffer from multiple personality disorder. Last year my parents took away my phone bcecausei got in trouble with the law, but i since cleaned my record. I havent had my phone for a year but i dont even care about it. They dont let me see any of my friends I havent hung out with any of them for about a year and never went out all summer. My dad is mostly the abusive one in the family. He punches my door and screams at me constently. We have had a bad relationship with him for a while now. My mom has threated to strangle me and hurt me for not doing simple tasks. They always say how i have such low self confidence but they dont know its because of them. I know i cant run away because i have no money they take all of it. And I have no where to go. Im just so sad and depressed all the time. I really hate living here and just wanna turn 18 already. I just want to get high so I cant just forget about everything and be in my own world.
