  • I want to leave at 17!

    I have a question. I am 17 years old, I have a job, go to school and I want to leave my house. I am treated horribly here. I have to pay for everything. Groceries, gas money for work, bills and I'm only 17. My mom is a travel nurse so she is gone all of the time. I am basically independent and do things on my own. My mom has physically and emotionally abused me numerous times and I'm sick of it! I can't take it anymore! I live in Florida and am going to be turning 18 in 6 months! Is there anyway I can move in with my friend and her family until the end of graduation. What will happen if I do this? Can I be forced to go back home?
