  • Need to vent

    I'm just gonna vent and get some stuff out here so I don't keep it all in my head as I don't think that's very healthy.

    I'm a teenager (not gonna give out my age for privacy reasons) but ever since I started school at the age of 5, my mum used to beat the hell out of me. Every time I couldn't get a question right doing homework and I needed help, guess what? That's right, she'd beat me. I'm not talking about a smack, I'm talking about my head getting repeatedly slammed on the edge of the table, her jabbing me with a pen and even threatening to slice me up. There are loads of times where she ripped up my homework or school books so I'd fail. And that's just when I was 5. It got worse later on but she has stopped beating me now, although the screaming, destruction of property and threats continue. Everytime someone raises their voice at me, I associate that with my mum screaming and beating me and become extremely anxious. Every person I talked to about it either laughed at me or didn't take it seriously.

    Sorry about this being kind of a rant, but I needed to get this out as I mentioned at the start. Have a nice day, everyone.
