I'm 17, and I live with my abusive parents. The problem? I can't prove it. I mean, there's some physical stuff, but nothing that leaves a mark. But there's also things like them keeping me home for an extra year after I graduate from high school. They've set it up so I take all the tests one normally takes Junior year my senior year. I didn't realize what they were doing untill it was too late. Technically they can't keep me once I turn 18, but practically... Me leaving would involve living on the streets or something. I don't have a driver's liscense, I don't have a job. Technically I can move out the day I hit 18, but on what income and to where? Then there are the other things they do. Like always praising my older brother and bragging about the things he does, but never me. They don't respect my boundries, especially my mom. It's all these little things, that by themselves don't seem like much, but they add up. And when I complain about them, people assume it's just the normal teenager rants of "i hate my parents". And what makes it worse? Everyone says my parents love me. Maybe they do, but they have an awful weird way of showing it. And meanwhile? I'm scared. I'm so very, very scared.
