How My Mom Got Those Bruises. </3My father is an unbelievable alcoholic... He hurts my mom a lot. AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO!
Usually when my dad hurts my mom its just him yelling at her and making her feel terrible. He doesn't only drink brown liquor he also smokes marijuana. He always tells me, he does all those bad things because his back hurts and my mother makes him feel terrible all the time. Well I know his back is fine and he's the one making my mom feel terrible. And every Wensday he goes out to his friend Lee's house to play pool, drink and do drugs. And when he come's home around 11 or 12 at night, he always yells at me or my 19 year old sister. And my mom tries to protect us and ends up getting the brunt of my dads abusive actions. And one morning, around 1 o'clock, extremely early... Or late, either way... My father came home and, not for the first time, but the WORST time, abused my mom in more than one way.........
My father came home and was slamming the cubbard doors and the fridge in the kitchen at my house. Everyone but my sister down stairs could hear it. Which would be my nephew, my mom and I. So because later that morning would be my first day at my new school, my mom got out of bed to ask my dad to please be quiet for my sake. And my father obviously didn't appreciate that... He started screaming disgustingly mean and rude things to my poor mother. And because my mom is who she is, she yelled back. But not ANYWHERE NEAR like my dad always does.
When I finally got out of bed about an hour later, I stood at the end of my hallway watching my parents argue violently. And my mother was standing in front of the kitchens food cubbards doors about 10 feet in front of me and my father grabbed her by the neck and pushed her against the doors and broke them because he was using all of his strength he had. And my mom struggled to get free. At this time I unvoluntarily was scream crying for him to stop. But he wouldn't let go of her neck. My mom then, fist clenched, hit him on the side of his face. He then, pursued punching her over.... and over and OVER again. When I finally got them to stop by throwing a vase at my father.... He left and came back later.
My mom just went to her room and I couldn't sleep AT ALL. The whole rest of the day I shook crazily and whole bodied. At 5 in the morning when I had to start getting ready for school that same morning, my father showed up acting like nothing happened. Except he slept in our RV. That was the not only the worst first day I school I've ever experienced, it was the second worst DAY in the past 5 years I've ever experienced. My fathers been repeating nights JUST like that for the past year or so.
So first let me thank whomever comments on this and/or reads this, and please help me understand what I should do! Should I just not talk to my father ? Should I call the police ? Should I tell a counselor at my school or my payed therapist ? And please help me find out a way that I can show my mother that what my dad does is wrong and how she should finally fill out the divorce papers she looks at every day hoping to get the courage to fill them out !
