  • I think my mom is emotionally abusive

    I’m a 16 year old girl living in california. I have 9 siblings and my currently in our home is 8 including myself. I have struggled with suicidal ideation since middle school and recently was admitted into a hospital to ensure my safety. After i left my mother told me that it was a nice stunt that’s i pulled. She does not allow me to practice any other religion besides christianity. And if i want to threatens to take my phone and my privileges away. She also has an orphanage in mexico which she is at most of the time. My dad is home taking care of us because he recently had surgery and is an active duty military personnel. When my dad isn’t home i have to pickup my siblings which are of the ages 9,9,7,7,6 from school. not everyday . But my 14 year old and 16 year old siblings are also left to watch them. I attend school until 4:30, come home shower and feed my siblings . but recently my dad has been here to help. My 26 year old brother threatened to call CPS on my mother and my mother now has forced me to block him and all forms of communication. My mother will force me to go to mexico and to her orphanage. and let my two younger siblings stay home,(who do not attend school and don’t even do their work for online school) My mom singles me out and i can quote times where she has said i am the cause of the confusion in the house. and that i am the problem . i feel singled out and my mom is my main motive to cut myself and pushes me past my breaking point, u can never be right with my mom and she invalidates my opinion and makes me feel emotionally neglected. the other kids aren’t treated like this it’s just me. is this abuse? (also there are other instances that could be used as examples. i just need to know if it’s worth reporting because if i do i’m afraid she will find out and my situation will worsen)
