If you have ANYWHERE else to go, please, go now, before he follows through with his threats.

I find it shocking that the police won't do anything about this. Are they expecting you to provide evidence of abuse? In any case, there are safehouses and other victims' resources available. Perhaps an agent at one of those organizations could help you re-present your case to the police and, at the very least, issue a restraining order against your father.

I am so sorry that you have to deal with this. =(

I am so sorry that this is happening again. You shouldn't have to fight him off. It's not your responsibility to do that, and it makes sense that you're worn out. Dylan, what happened when you went to the authorities? Also, when was the last time that you went? It is ALWAYS okay to reach out and keep talking until someone listens to you. Reaching out to the police, or another trusted adult, can definitely seem scary but Dylan, you deserve to be safe and in a loving house. It is never, ever, okay for your father to be doing what he's doing, no matter how often he's doing it or not doing it.

Let us know how it goes, okay? Take good care of yourself and I'm here if you want to talk more. <3

Hello Dylan,

I'm so sorry you have to go through this but like Jen said, reaching out until someone listens is always ok. For now, I would suggest seeking out a trusted adult and going somewhere else. You deserve more than this. Everyone does. Did you try talking to the police? Or do you not think they will do anything.......I'm pretty sure something will come out of it if you try.

If you need anything, you can PM me. I'm new here and I love making new friends.

Hey Dylan,

I am so sorry you are going through this. No one deserves this. Have you considered talking to a school counselor or something? If you tell them what is going on they will have to report it to the authorities and then the authorities will have no choice but to take action.

Also, someone else said that their are safe houses and what not, and that is true. If you were to talk to a school counselor they might be able to help you find a safe place to go. If that doesn't work you could go to a homeless shelter and tell them what is going on and they will also be able to find you a safe place to stay..or they should be.

If you don't want to do any of that is there any other adult you can talk to? A friends parent or something? Please find a way to get away from your father and that horrible situation.

If you need someone to talk to feel free to aim or pm me.
