I really need some help deciding what to do.
I’m convinced my mother is mentally insane. She tried to kill one of my younger sisters last year. Literally had her down on the floor and was choking her. The only reason she stopped is because the other sisters texted me and I called her and screamed at her. (I live at school currently.)
I thought that maybe this was a one time thing.
But it’s happening again.
She’s threatened physical abuse on my sister multiple times since then. She’s been worse than ever. The amount of verbal and emotional abuse my sisters get is horrific. Two of them became anorexic because she called them fat so many times they believed it. The other has wanted to run away from home so many times….
My dad won’t do anything about it because last time he tried, mom threatened to divorce him. My poor dad is the victim of an abusive relationship with her. She verbally abuses him almost every time she sees him. But, he loves her too much to divorce her.
I am 17 and will be 18 in a few months, but I’m afraid that’ll be too long to wait… However, I am my sisters’ legal guardian as soon as I turn 18.
So, I want to take legal action and call Child Protective Services, but I have no proof. I want to be the guardian of my sisters and get them out of there. But, I’m afraid if I bring it up and I fail, the abuse will just get worse for my family. She’s so scary. So so so scary… Also, I wouldn’t be able to go to college and probably would have a hard time supporting the four of us on a minimum wage job. (These are things my sisters thought up). Not to mention they have to go to school and whatnot.
My sisters want me to wait until the next big event, but what if that means one of them dies?! I don’t know what to do… I want to help them, but I can’t. I’m too far away…
Thanks for reading……
