Ok, my mom remarried, and her new husband has....ehh.... what everybody likes to call mental issues due to a wreck he had a long time ago and a metal plate being in his head (i think its no excuse for what im about to tell you) whenever him and my mom get in fights and he hits her, i will tell him to stop and try to pull him offa her becuase most of the time hes choking her til her face turns blue, and i will make him stop and he will try to choke me as well, and he will push me or scream right in my face spitting all over my face while hes yelling, and cusses at me and calls me a little b**ch and stuff like that. My mother lets my stepdad rule everything, he decides on everything. I dont go to the doctor when Im sick becuase mom is always too worried about money and would rather me be sick and die then take me to the doctor becuase she has to pay for all the crap my stepdad has made her buy for him and she has to make payments on. My mom also refuses to get me mental help due to trauma with being abused when I was little, I have grown to be extremely depressed, my school (when i was in school, i just graudated this year) my school would tell my mom that i needed help and to get me a psychiatrist becuase I would need to e put on medicine. my mom took me to one doctor 3 times, after he put me on medicine she stopped taking me becuase she didnt wanna pay for the medicine and she stopped taking me becuase she didnt want me to tell the doc anything like how my stepdad hits on us and stuff. My mom now, also has moved into hitting me, whenever she gets real mad at me, she hits me and when i try to make her stop she will pin me down on the floor or osmething and just start punching me. I am almost 18, and i wanna leave so bad, only having 2 months until i turn 18, but dont know if the cops owuld make me return home or not. i hate it here. would that be enough to just tell the cops the reason thats why i want to leave and leave and not get in trouble for being gone? or would they just make me go home and stick it out until i turn 18? just wondering if anybody has any advice.and if any of that considers neglect and or abuse?
