I'm a 16 year old female. My parents have been divorced ever since I can remember. They have gotten along so that they could share custody of me for the past 11 or 12 years. My parents are both remarried and happy with their own families. My dad seems to have a problem with me and everything about me is wrong. for example when I do something little wrong he flips out and calls me a slut, a whore, just anything he can think of really. He says things that really bother me emotionally. My stpdad does it too, so it's not like I can get away from the negatives at one house by going to the other. My mom and stepdad are constantly fighting and arguing over anything they can think of but mainly their relationship. I have told my mother that I do not like my stepdad or even respect him numerous times, because of the fact that he has been caught cheating on her over and over again. I know it is wrong I have no respect for my mother either though because of the fact that she puts up with what he does. I have tried just staying at a friends house to get away from my parents and the chaos but they have these really strict rules where I can barely leave the house. I have tried to get away many times and I will admit that i have ran away before and gotten put into a correctional facility but all they did was blame eveerything on mw and no problems were solved. The day i got out things were back to normal. For example on the 14th of February I called my friend to tell her happy valentines day and when my dad came home from dinner with my stepmom he checked the redial and seeing that I had yusd the phone he starte yelling at me and smacking me on the head. Then he proceded to grab me by my neck and pushed me against our back door. I couldn'yt get him to let go but when he finally did, I went to my room and i packed my things and planned to run away again. The next morning I left feeling overwhelmed and I didn't want to ever go back. I was gone for a whole day. I decided to return under the condition that my mom recieve full custody of me or I would get emancipated. She promised but when I got back home she was ther with my dad and he started the verbal abuse the second he saw me. He wasn't even happy I was home All he wanted was me to be put into Juveile Detention. The police stated that ther was nothinf He could do about the situation and that running away wasn't illegal in Florida. But obviously running away isn't getting my point across. i need to be out of that house hold. I have been sucessfull in school recently and I currently have a well paying job. The other day I was upset and I accidentally slammed a door at my dad's house and he chased me down the hallway. He again grabbed me by the throat and I couldn't get him off of me. he slapped me in the face numerous times and told me that i was a whore and made some other degrading comments. My stepmom heard the commtion and came to pull him away from me. He pushed her out of the way and stormed off. I immediatley got to the phone and called my mother thinking she would do something but she wouldn't even leave work to come get me. She told me my stepdad would be there soon. He did show up. He had been at the bar and was apparently intoxicated, like usual. He took me back to my mom's house and dropped me off to stay there all night by myself. No family member of mine offers me support or help when it doesn't benifit them. Also my mother claims that the reason that she and my father got a divorce was because he was mentally and physically abusive. I want to know, if she found a way out , why can't I? My dad has even told me berore, "If I could just beat the shit out of you one ****ing time it would make my day, even if I did go to jail." The main problem is that he is always careful not to leave marks because he knows I would call HRS on him. He is currently taking madeication for anger problems though, Im think the medication is called Effexer. I don't know what lse I can do! Can you offe any suggestions? or is there anyway I could get emancipated because of this?
