I am Shanna.

My father abuses me whenever he is drunk
or whenever he is pissed at me for no reason.

I have tons of bruises.

I dont really know what to do because i dont want

Maybe you should stay with a friend or family member because he is hurting you?

Hi there Shanna,

Welcome to TeenHelp I'm really glad that you are here.

I am so incredibly sorry to hear about what you are going through. I want you to know, first of all, that this is NOT your fault. I don't know if blame is something you struggle with, but just in case, it is never okay for someone to hurt you the way your father is hurting you--no matter what you do or say, and no matter what he drinks.

You do definitely need help. And reaching out can seem like the absolute scariest thing in the whole entire universe. But it's worth it to make this abuse stop. Imagine not having to live in fear, and being taken care of instead of beaten up, and not having to worry about being hurt. It's possible, Shanna. The good news is that you don't have to go directly to the police. There are plenty of adults who can do all of the work for you. All you need to do is tell an adult who will listen. A good place to start is usually at school. A teacher, school nurse, or guidance counselor are all people who will listen to you and do what needs to be done to help you. You don't have to tell your friends if you don't want to, but if you think it might make it easier, you could tell a friend and have them come with you to support you when you talk to the adult.

Again, I know how scary this must seem, Shanna--but you're right, you do need help, and you want it. And you deserve it. Please reach out ASAP. It's hard but so worth it. I promise. Know that we are all here to support you, okay? And if you need anything or want to talk, you can always PM me.

Take good care of yourself.

It's wrong that he hurts you. Is there someone you can stay with? Maybe calling the cops on him would give him a wake up call so he can see that he is hurting you. Have you told your mum about it?? I think its important to keep you safe and telling someone is the best thing you can do for yourself.
Pm me if you need someone to talk.

Hi it isnt your fault, Like jen said but you do need help and it may seem scary at first but it will help you in the long run and you will not have to go through it anymore and you dont need to call the police you could tell an adult that you trust and he will still get introuble but that is what he gets for hurting you and he shouldnt be doing that, no one should hurt you.

If you need to talk PM me anytime
