  • Please help ASAP

    Hi. I am 17 1/2 and currently live with my 85 1/2 year old great grandmother. She is no longer working and turns down every job opportunity I get, so there is no income being brought in at the time. She is mentally and emotionally abusive at times and is starting to show signs of memory loss. Things are also becoming physically harder and harder for her to do.
    I am due to graduate from my senior year as early as January and plan on going straight into college to pursue the career of becoming a Criminal Defense Attorney. But family friends see the stress and depression I go through on a daily basis. They also see how living in this household puts a serious strain on my future.
    I have been talking to a family friend who wants to get custody of me from my grandmother but I know that process takes while to do. I've gone through it once before about two or three years ago. I was thinking about running away to either her house or out of the city for awhile until things get in order. I need absolute help and advice, please!
