  • Argument that got out of hand

    So me and my mother usually argue, and we get over it quickly. But tonight was something different... We came home from a drive around the neighbourhood when I said what we were doing tomorrow. She replied with angrily and me being myself I was aggressive. I swore a few times, but when I went to walk away, she throws a hard gut punch. So instinctively I push her back hard against the counter, though then she says you're done. She walks away, and I walk into my room. This isn't the first time she has made me feel like dirt. One time we were arguing when she picked up a thong from the ground and threw it towards me.. It hit me hard in my privates, and I fell to the ground, crying. She laughed at me, and that made my little brother and sister laugh at me as well. I tried to run away once, but she found me walking on the side of the road. She forced me to get back into the car, so I did. What should I do now? Because I feel so angry, she has basically turned my whole family against me. She sides with my pops when he yells at me, I get blamed for things I don't do, and when I am feeling down all she does is laugh at me.. So what should I do?
