I was assaulted by my father and brother. They took turns, shouting insults at me, grabbing me by the neck and throwing me around the room. It's been almost a month now. When will I feel normal again?

Have you been assaulted by a family member? Because if you havent you can go ahead and get the fuck out now.

I have. It's a fair question. What are your other options except to move forward from it? There will be people in your life with more power and they will use that power to hurt you on purpose. Vengeance is an attachment, justice is an attachment, get rid of attachments.

I could cut them open while they sleep so they can never hurt me again.

Already done. I still think they want to murder me and that I won't be safe until I kill them first. They dont talk when I do somthing they dont appreciate. They just shut their mouths, pretend to laugh, and then after a few months of repressing their displeasure, they fucking explode in a violent rage. It's a cycle.

The idea that you should accept nothing short of a total victory is an actual Russian social media influence campaign. You may have come to this worldview on your own, but it doesn't matter, does it?

There are many kinds of violence. If you feel unsafe around them, which I would assume you naturally would, that's a continuation of violence in a different form, particularly as you share a home.

A knife wound can't scar if there is still a knife in it. I would suggest you find a way to protect yourself from your father and brother. The easiest way, at first glance, seems to be to find a different living situation. At the least, have a secret and secure spot you can bolt to if things go south

Way to follow my advice bitch

If you don't want a metaphor, you should rethink the title "healing after domestic violence"

Maybe you could also try getting a clue. If you read my posts again, you might notice i agree with the posters I quote

Damn OP, didn't realize you were trying to heal while still living with your attackers.

Get someplace safe then worry about moving on emotionally

Dad invited me to live with him while I go to college. Seemed good on paper but after a couple years of beatings it's pretty clear he is not actually interested in helping me. I am dropping out of school, grabbing a job and getting out of here.

I was assaulted by my brother too and also immediately moved out. It was a good choice. I didn’t see a therapist until like 5 years later, i wish i had seen one way sooner though. Is hard to cope with that shit

Honestly, I was abused as a child and Im not a 240lb powerlifting man who has done martial arts for over 10 years. I still feel like a scared 6 year old when I get triggered right.

If you have any way to get moving out further up the list do it. Any friend's couches to crash on or anything?

But yeah, good plan. Move out, cut the ties so they can't reach you again and then once you're safe, therapy and look at moving forward.

Maybe let your school know why you're dropping out though I'm not sure it'll help it might mean you can pick things up in the future if that comes on the cards.

I was also abused by my brother for 3 years on a weekly basis. I don't talk to him anymore as I've cut all ties with him. I understand your situation OP. Move out ASAP! It's only going to get worse and killing them in their sleep will only land you in prison for the rest of your life. Not worth it. Just work your ass off making money and look for a place to live out on your own. After you move out cut all ties with them and live your life. If you have to go to therapy. I'm in therapy right now trying to get my issues resolved from all the beatings I took from my brother. Getting help doesn't make you weak. It's doing the right thing for yourself so you can move on with your life and leave those two pieces of shit in the dust.

Clint Musson used to beat the absolute FUCK out of his little sister Mandy like every single day. Kathy Olsen, their mom, knew all about it and let it continue because she was busy taking all kinds of dick. This happened in the 80s in Michigan.
