    I need help. Every single time I do something wrong. Not bad, but just.. Not perfect. My mom goes off. Last night, I was late home and called her to come get me. She stormed into my boyfriends house and started full fledged SCREAMING at both of us. Cussing me out. She tore off my boyfriends necklace. yelling about how irresponsible his parents are. When just the night before she had been totally drunk, and she clawed the hell out of my arm. It was bleeding for about a half hour. Now im grounded for a month. And she comes up every few minutes to scream. What do I even do?

    Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline for help. It sounds like a difficult situation with your mom. Have you ever talked to anyone else about it?

    We also have a national database of resources if you would like us to help you locate an emergency shelter (safe place) in your area. Just so you know, most shelters will need to contact your mom to let her know you are staying there and may need her permission for you to stay. We would be happy to talk to you about what is available in your area.
