I am 15 years old. For as long as I can remember, my dad has had abuse problems. They have been physical and verbal towards my mom, brother, and me. He is an alcoholic but denies it. He has been arrested in the past for domestic abuse; I called the cops and then was ostracized for it by my brother. Last week, he had a big fight with my mom. He punched her and now she has a huge bruise. He sat down with me and my mom earlier and they both apologized for what happened. He said he "guaranteed" that it would never happen again. But I don't believe him. He has said this in the past and then another fight has broken out. I am so confused. I don't know what to think. I absolutely hate him and wish he wasn't my father. He is an embarassment. Sometimes in public he will get in my face and pull his arm back as if he is getting ready to punch me. I am scared of him and really want my parents to get divorced. My mom has a lawyer already and just has to sign the papers. But she hasn't done it yet. She keeps saying that she'll do it (for months) but she hasn't. I don't want anything to do with him. As soon as I am 18, I'm gone and I don't ever want to see him again. I just don't know what to do right now. When we were all talking, he kept interrupting me when I spoke. So I called him an 'a******' and he shut off my phone service. I am REALLY angry right now. I wish he was dead. I am so angry and just don't know what to do. Can someone help me please? And any advice to get my phone back?
I NEED SOMEONE TO GET BACK TO ME ASAP BECAUSE I AM FURIOUS RIGHT NOW AND WANT TO SCREAM. HELPPPP.
