My father, up until a couple years ago, has always been an "absentee" parent. He lived in the house but acted as though I did not exist and showed little, if any, interest in my physical or emotional well-being. (I have had therapy off and on for years to deal with issues brought on by physical abuse and neglect from before I came to live with him.)
I am in therapy now and am medicated for anxiety and depression. My father exacerbates my issues with frequent violent outbursts (he does not hit me; he attacks inanimate objects) and daily insults and lewd comments. I have no money and no place to stay, but this is an extremely destructive environment in which to live, and it's been all I can do not to kill myself. How can I get away from him without ending up on the street?
