I live with my mother 50% of the time. My parents are divorced and both remarried, witch has never bothered me, but my mother continuously hits me an hurts me even 30 minutes after a fight, her and her husband show no care or respect towards me. We get in physical fights slot, and I'm not proud of it. I have tried being kinder to them but it never works, and they come up with arbitrary nicknames to call me EX: lanegina, or retard, or gay. But I am recently more fed up than usual, and have been having suicidal thoughts and actions. It isn't much better at school either.
I would like to change this, and live my life without these problems. Please help me /adv/
Are there any free counselors in your school you can see? Your mother is being abusive, and you should prioritize getting away from her. These are serious warning signs, not simply "issues." You need to take steps to protect yourself from your toxic home environment. It will get better, OP, and possibly soon, but you need to reach out to a helpline for domestic abuse and/or school/community counseling services ASAP.
Did the counselor actually laugh at you, or did your mother "explain" to you that they were secretly not taking you seriously?
Listen. Your mother is a bad person. She may not know it, she is your mother, but she is a bad person. She is hurting you. She is not someone you should trust. This may mean, for a while, you won't have anyone to trust, and this is scary and lonely. And I'm sorry you have to go through this, but at this point, you just need to get back out.
Go to the counselor again, cry if you need to, it's ok. I've cried in front of counselors (I mean therapist, not guidance councelors) countless times. You need to get out. How close are you to finishing school? You need to see the counselor and tell them that your mother made it sound like they were making fun of you. Your situation is serious and your complaints are completely valid, but obviously your mother, who is hurting you, does not want anything to change. There are many people in the world who are better than her.
I was there when the guidance counselor was snickering at my story, it hurt alot and I don't know how to approach the other counselors for help, I'm almost done with 8th grade but IDK if I'm gonna pass this year and I plan on getting my dad to help me out of the situation, but she doesn't leave marks anymore so I have no proof, except my brother watching it.

If your counselor laughed at you he is a fraud and does not deserve his job. Talk to ANYONE else who is some kind of authority figure you can put some trust in like a teacher.
Also I think you should be explicit to your dad about how you are feeling, and if he isn't immediately committed to helping you bring up the suicidal tendencies, and if he doesn't take action fuck him, bring this to the aforementioned authority figure who will hopefully be a competent human being about this.
New guy here, gonna leave some judgmental stuff so feel free to glance over the next few things.
1. The counselor is fucked up and doesn't deserve a job, let alone compassion
2. Parents are supposed to protect their kids from harm, your mom is a failure of a mom.
Advice= Be better than them.
Thanks everybody for helping me out, I'm going to try to go to a different school counselor and get the rights switched to 100% my dad, or close to it. I will also try to lessen my depression.

>bum is happy
>you are happy
>your father is happy
>your stepfather never touches you again

You can do it Crimson! Sometimes things feel hopeless and desperate, but after keeping yourself safe, you'll feel better. Just trust me when I say, you will be SO grateful that you did not take your life once the storm has passed. Your situation is not hopeless and a better life is closer to you than you think.
