I'm not a psychologist and as far as I know nobody else here is either. if you think that you have issues that need dealing with and you feel that you can't deal with it alone I would suggest seeing a proffesional, Visiting your doctor would be a good start.

Good luck

Fuman - Thanks for sharing your feelings with us.

You may have a form of anxiety, but always know you can count on us for support, and that you're not alone, even though it's hard to believe at times.

You'll find a way out.

Having grown in in an abusive home, I say yes - seek help.

You sound as if you are in a sitution that I found myself in - needing and wanting to seek help, but being a minor and still being at home. It was exceedingly difficult for me to get help about my parents while I was still living with them. They did not want "the secret" out, and they did everything they could to keep me quiet.

I took some rather drastic measures. A few years of calling Child Protective Services finally found me a foster home. In the end, (after being placed BACK home at 17), I ran away. Called a lawyer. Explained.

Never had to go home again.

You have to decide what length you are willing to go to get help. What is safe for you to do. I don't always recommend drastic measures. But I don't always dis-recommend them, either.

Try seeing a school counseler and explain to them why you are afraid. They may be required to tell someone - but that may just be your saving grace.

Hold tight - the ride is going to be bumpy. No matter which way it goes, if you are "found out" by your parents, it is going to be one hell of a hard time and a whole lotta heartbreak. But if you really need it, in the end, it will be worth it.
