My so-called father is abusive. he kicks us, yells at us, slaps us, if we so much as a say a wrong joke. As I am writing this, my mother is beside me crying. I have an exam in 5 hours. I have slept for 3. My father came at me for no apparent reason. I fought back, shouted back; he kicked me and slapped me. Enough was enough today. I called the police. They said they couldn't help. My father promised me he won't let me study law. because, obviously, how can he have a lawyer in his house while he plans on making life more and more hell for us?

We are all alone here. None of our family members seem to be of any kind of help. I am not a lawyer yet, heck, I am in only first year of college. I am one hairbreadth away from giving up. I just want to die. Help us, please.
