Hey there, and welcome to TH!
I'm really sorry that you're dealing with all of this... you certainly don't deserve to be mistreated by anyone, and neither does your mom. The fact that he's hurting either of you is absolutely unacceptable. You both deserve loads better... but I'm afraid that the fact that you deserve better doesn't mean that you'll get it from him. And I'm afraid that from what you've said, it doesn't look as if your mom is strong enough right now to take action against your dad. I think that it would be a really good idea for you to talk to a trusted adult about this... there are several routs that you could take, like contacting the authorities or even having someone close to your mom (an aunt perhaps?) to help intervene, and help the two of you get out of this situation. You should look up women's shelters in your area to get an idea of what sorts of services are available to you<3. Maybe do it at school, so that your dad won't know what you've searched? Hang in there. When I said that you don't deserve to be mistreated, I meant by anyone. Believe me, I know what it is to be a self-harmer, but you do deserve more from the people around you and from yourself. As for others at school, speaking with a counselor might be a good idea. And you're not alone<3. Unfortunately, this sort of situation isn't as uncommon as you think... it's just that these sorts of things are often hushed up and always under-reported. Stay strong, and know that I'm around if you ever need anything. I'm always around to talk.
Absolute best of luck<3. Welcome again, and I hope that you'll consider reaching out for help soon. You and your mom both deserve it.

I believe thatyou're inherently beautiful : )

I'm sorry things are rough for you at the moment, you don't deserve to be treated like this, tell someone you trust; It will help you and your mom.
As for the SH, try alternatives that can help such as reading or writing - things that will distract you. Have you tried any so far? I know it is hard but you have to try. Talk to someone you trust that can help you, SH is dangerous and abuse is not right.
Feel free to PM me if you want to talk,
Take care and stay strong
