  • I don't know what to do anymore.

    I'm 15 and 7 months and I live my dad and his mom. They constantly call me names, yell at me, throw water on me, threaten me and my dad has hit me on a few occasions but it doesn't happen that often. His mom (my granny) is crazy she has gone through a lot and she takes care of her mom (who hates me to the point that she won't even look at me) but that doesn't give her the excuse to treat me the way she does. She has come in my room and put water all over all my stuff just because she wanted to, she is filthy and leaves trash everywhere then she expects me to clean it. She gets into my face and calls me names and I get angry and start yelling back because I don't know what else to do. My dad sits and watches it and no matter what it is he sides with her and yells at me too. Sometimes it gets physical with him he hits me and I hit back to make him back up. He's tried chocking me but i hit him to make him let go. But when this happens he threatens to call the cops on ME? I haven't done anything wrong and I'm still the bad guy. DCF has come in and out of our lives because things start to get bad and I always feel bad and lie because I'm scared if I left my dad my go off the chain and hurt himself or something. They wont let me see my moms side of the family because they called DCF a couple years ago trying to get me out of the home. My dad is on drugs and always talks about killing people and my mom and sometimes when we argue he's told me that he was going to kill me. I don't doubt he will but I'm not scared to die so honestly it doesn't bother me. Ive tried to get him to take me to a therapist because I thought maybe it would be easier to stay with him if I could talk to someone about it. Lately its been getting worse and I'm scared that him and his mom will team up and call the cops and lie so that they will take me to juvie. I have somewhere to go and my granny keeps saying that she is going to kick me out but she is just saying it. Im thinking aboout waiting the 5 months and getting emancipated but thats a lot of work and I would have to quit school to pay for myself and that is frankly not an option. I could go to my uncles house but I can't leave my dog (a tiny chiweenie) I just wouldn't be able to live in good conscience without him being with me. I also still love my dad and don't want him to hate me. What should I do? Is this actual abuse? If I told DCF all of this do you think that they will take me to my uncles once and for all?
