  • Family Abuse and Problems

    I got my SAT score back today, and it's not what I or my family expected it to be. It was my first try, and I know I tried my best, and so does my dad, but my mom began to go crazy. She started screaming inappropriate comments. After my lessons and such, I came back home, where I came back to my mother bombarding me with insults and verbal abuses. This then began to proceed to physical abuse. My dad, at first, became angry with me, and started verbally discouraging me as well. Then, my mother grabbed a wooden stick and attacked me. I tried to defend myself, and ended up accidentally hitting my mom in the eye. My dad became even angrier, grabbed my arm, and threw me at the door and screamed at me to get out of the house and walk away. I ran out, but my parents ran after me, and grabbed me and threw me back inside the house. After more screaming and insults, my mom attempted to attack me again, and grabbed my hair and began thrashing at me and pulling it. I started screaming, and I think I mentally broke down at this point, because I tried to get out of the house by myself (my dad tried to stop me), screaming desires for suicide. My dad took me for a quiet drive, but now i'm back at home, and scared if my mom will hurt me again or if they will kick me out. I don't know why I get all of these over a number. I'm scared, I have nowhere else to go, I only have $20 in my wallet, and I'm only 16. I'm hurt emotionally, mentally, and physically, and I'm considering dying for the sake of my family. I don't know what to do.
