But the main reason I'm posting here is because of the mental/emotional abuse. It's breaking me. My parents just got in another argument, and my mom went yo her bedroom (the spare bedroom) that's across from mine, and I can heat her cussing my father out. I don't know what to do with this anymore. I've tried ignoring it. But k really can't. I hate this. I've even confronted her about this, many times, and she'll say she'll stop.

She never does.

I really ******* hate this, and, God, I want to run away.

But I can't.

Because that would ***** up my life.

Is there anyone out there that knows some tricks to ignore this? Because I've honestly had enough
Hi there,

I know what it's like to be in a situation like that. It's very scary, and things can get so heated. I know at times I got so scared my heart would start racing really fast.

And it's not healthy for you either to be living in conditions like that, in addition to all the other things that you've already been through -- it could be traumatizing.

I think you're worried about your parents -- at least one of them, enough to ask for them to stop fighting, and I admire that you're a caring person.

I'm sorry to hear that it's gotten so bad that you've wanted to run away, and this even happened to me before.

I'm currently in a similar situation like this. I'm hoping that by the time I go to college things will be better, or at that point, I'll have my own place. In the meantime, maybe you could speak to a school counselor you trust? Is there a friend's place you could visit for a few hours a day or something to get away from all of the negativity? Your safety is equally important, and so is your education -- you can't focus on school in an environment like that, and it's also very unhealthy for you to develop and mature in a healthy manner.

I hope things get better, but -- take care of yourself too.
