I can’t take it anymore

By February 6, 2023No Comments

I can’t take it anymore. As long as I can remember, my mom has slapped me or hit me in some sort of way. Today just a couple of hours ago my mom and I were having a conversation about school which then turned into her hitting me. I was protecting myself by hitting her hand away, she then yells “don’t hit your mom, I brought you into this world. I can bring you out.” She then continues to hit me. She then grabs my dogs toy, which is a big thick rope. She grabs it and starts hitting me waking towards me which I am walking backwards to try to get away. She’s screaming and yelling at me I keep walking backwards until I reached the front door. I grab to try to unlock it so I can leave my house. My dad wakes up grabs my mom and tells her to stop. I try to leave but he sees me and removes my hand from the door. I don’t know if I can take it anymore. My mom has given me depression, anxiety, and hate for her. She says she loves me but continues to hit me. I can’t take it anymore to the point where I want to leave my house and be with a different family and to end my life. I don’t know what to do.
