My dad is mentally abusive. He would never hit me, but I was afraid he might last night. As a result of his mental abuse, I had been self harming for years until I finally managed to stop several months ago. Things have been tense lately. Lat night he got drunk and came in my room, mad because my window was open. And he just started screaming at me. Horrible things, over something that I never even said, something my brother told him when they were drunk. He started punching my door and finally left, slamming it. I was so afraid. I wanted to get out of the house, but I was afraid to go out the doors because he might hear me and come after me. So I tried to climb out the window. I fell and got several bruises, one of them is on my upper arm and it looks horrible and hurts even more. I'm pretty sore too. Then I had to climb back in the window because the doors were locked and I didn't want him knowing I had climbed out; I never know what's going to set him off. I'm scared now. He hates me. My mom and I have arranged for me to move in with her the first of next month, but I don't know what will happen until then.
