  • I'm 17, with an abusive mother and I need to get out.

    For years my mom has been emotionally and mentally abusive. But more recently she's taken it to the level of hitting me. She punches me, slaps me, whips me with wet towels, throws wet cloths at me. She constantly degrades me and my dad is never around to see it. I don't think I can wait until I'm 18 to leave, I only see two options left and it's either running away or killing myself. I don't know what's gonna happen to me if I run away and nobody will give me answers. I can't stay in that place anymore. Please help me
