  • im 12 and i need to get out of this place

    i'm 12 and last night i was dragged around my house, beat, made shower while being stared at (almost had my clothing dragged off of me but i fought enough so i could shower with my clothes) and i had the door to my bedroom taken off of. i'm already packed with 5 water bottles, 3 cans of chili (safe to eat cold), a sleeping bag and thermal blanket and extra clothing (1 more outfit) but i'm wondering if this is illegal in any way. i dont want my parent to get in any legal issues because i dont blame them for destroying me mentally, as im a pretty garbage child not gonna lie. can i get some help here???
