  • I'm 16 and I live in a very mentally and verbally abusive home and I want out


    My situation started when middle school hit and everything just gets worse. My dad's not in the picture but my mother blames that on me. She always does on how I'm wasn't a good enough daughter. I suffer from severe depression and anxiety and a bit of ptsd. I've always been the one to clean the house, take care of the animals and myself. When I was suicidal my mom didn't help me, I had to help myself and put myself in the hospital to get the help. I'd come out and everything would be great until my mom would say something hurtful. I always got upset, then shed bring my grandfather into it, and it got worse. When he doesn't get the answers he wants, he's get abusive. He's pushed me in the corner and has balled up his fists yelling at me. I don't feel constable living here anymore. I do work, also.

    what do I do?
