  • How can I leave my family at 13

    Im f 13 and ever since I was born my life has been really hard. I really love my mom but she just can't handle my sister, my sister is supposedly bipolar or autistic but in general is just a terrible person. Everyday I have to deal with her screaming at everyone and everything she's broken many things and has cost us lots of money and even my step father job. She would often beat me and I couldn't do anything back or even protect myself because my parents would defend her because she "mentally ill". My mother always has mental break downs over almost everything and cant handle her emotions well, but I don't complain because she's had a harder life than I could ever imagine. My father's always set extremely high expectations and I was never good enough for him. I've recently started physically developing and my father has been acting weird. He's started to touch me a lot (i.e. hugs, kisses, etc.) it was weird to me because he knows that I sensitive to touch and he only started doing all this recently. He'd hold me by my waste and call me his "little girl" and he's never done anything like this before. One day I fell asleep on the couch and woke up with him lying next to me with his hand on my breast. I have no friends or family that I can escape to, and I can't put up with them anymore. The only reason I haven't told anyone about this is because Im scared my mom wont believe me or that it will make things harder for her. I really really need help ever since I've been stuck at home with the pandemic I've felt empty and have started cutting and starving myself.They never have time for me and I've mentally dying. I don't need therapy I need them to go away things will never be functional. I really don't want to call CPS or anything because I don't want anything bad to happen to my mom, but I can't find any ways out. I really need help.
