Hi @DayD1994.

I'm so sorry for what you are going through. I'm out of my element here as far as giving you detailed advice, but perhaps you should call 911 (if you're in the United States) and tell them that your father is physically and emotionally abusing you and that you fear for your life. See what they say. Good luck.

You could report him to your local law enforcement agency.
Maybe go to a woman's shelter,for safety.
You could go to counseling.
The list is endless.
I hope this helps.

I agree with what Candycane says above, but it depends which country you live in, as to which resources are available. You say yours is not a culture that denigrates women, but even if it were, your father's behaviour is unacceptable and is still abuse - physical and emotional.

I imagine you are from Europe - is that right? If so, then the things Candycane has mentioned above will be available to you. Wherever you are in Europe, at the very least you will be able to contact the police. But if you don't want them to take action over your father, this could be a problem, because they probably will, if you tell them all you have told us.

As you are studying, I think the best thing would be to go to someone at your college and ask if they have a counsellor you can speak to. Explain things are very difficult at home and you can't bear it any more. That might be your first step to getting away. But you MUST get away from him. The abuse you describe is horrific and ongoing. I wonder you mother hasn't left him, but she is probably frightened of him and also bonded with him (the link between abusers and victims is often very strong). I know that I could not watch a child of mine suffer like that. But you say she is sweet, so her will and sense of right and wrong have probably been broken over the years.

You got away to study for 7 years. I hope and pray you can get away again: you need to in order to survive, emotionally and physically. Once you are free, you can work on repairing your heart and becoming stronger. In time, you will be able to flourish and develop your many gifts. I promise you, your future is there, waiting for you. With kindest regareds, Ginger Kitten.

Thank you dear for taling your time and responding to my post.. i am actually in north africa not europe... and thr thing thst stops me from going to the police is that i dont want people to talk about our family "the father in jail" i dont care about what people say but my mother does ndmy little brother too.. my mom yes you are right she is so calm and have no power compared to him he affected her terribly she is scared of him more than i am and that what made him feel stronger.. i am sure there is nothing to change in him or her ther are both over 50 years old he is 62 too late to change for someone that never feel sorry.. but i hope its not too late to fix myself.. i got some bad habits from him honnestly worrying, anger... and i was always blaming him deep inside but inwanted my blame to be true i dont want to be that person who is bad and blame it on others.. because he was alwys agressive and i had no chance to talk back if i do he beats me i feel rage and anger are accumulated inside and now im a sensitive person but also always in the edge if its correct to says i mean i overrect sometimes and im alwys attacking when talking.. so now he sys with cold blood where did get this tradhy personnality from im ready to spend a fortune to a psychiatrist so you get treated .... funny isnt it?

Feeling angry is a natural response to being mistreated, DayD, but I perfectly understand that you do not want to feel that way because it reminds you of your father's anger. But you are a different person; you are not an abuser, please try to bear that in mind. I also understand what you are saying about this, because my father could be aggressive, humiliating and spiteful. He is better now as he is 90 and has calmed down, but I always feel slightly wary of him. We have had many arguments over the years because I frequently stood up to him; what I now realise is that it's safer to walk away, and anyway, I don't like my mother getting caught up in the middle of the friction. It's all so damaging.
Paying for a psychiatrist privately will be very expensive, but if you think you'd like therapy, you can now find it on the internet - just be sure you go through a professional organisation to find someone. Personally, I think face to face is better, so perhaps you could find a local therapist/counselllor to help you.
Meanwhile, keep talking to people on this site. Many people with mental health issues have experienced abuse and trauma at some point in their lives, often in their childhood, so they will understand. I wish you the best. Kind regards, GK.

There has to be a solution somewhere. Are there any women's refuges to go to in your country, as Candycane suggests? I don't know what North Africa is like in terms of protection for abused women. But if this kind of organisation exists, that would be the place to go. They would protect you and keep you safe from your father. He may have connections, but he is not all-powerful; I think you are overpowered and scared by him at the moment and unable to think of solutions. As I said before, you got away from him before - and I think you said he is going to pay for some more studying abroad? If so, that's your opportunity to get clear of him and seek sanctuary elsewhere - if that is what you want to do. GK

Hi, that must have been awful to go through, sending virtual hugs. Been left by myself in a secluded area by my parents, yelled at in public places, and suffered abuse as well. I don't have anywhere else to go, so I mostly read/watch a lot to distract myself from what's going on. I find the internet especially helpful. You're not a terrible person for hating your dad. Unfortunately even after all that my family has done to me, I'm unable to hate them because even though what has happened before I'm just stuck in a mental state where I would willingly be with them rather than leave so far because of how my mind is wired from trauma and emotional abuse. I hope you find these forums helpful, there are lots of different categories on here.
