  • Want to cut ties with verbally abusive mother at 18

    My mom is such an angry person to the point where I'm scared of her. She gets so mad over the tiniest things and over nothing to the point where she's screaming horrible things and stomping around the house and scaring the HECK out of me. I've never met a more hateful person in my life. I'm terrified of her. She's also lowkey racist and I don't need that in my life. She goes on these rampages where she screams and says horrible things about me my sis and my dad. She makes my life hell to the point where I would rather die than be in the same house as her.
    I want to cut financial ties with my family so that I don't have to see her anymore after I turn 18 but I don't know how. Anyone have any advice? I still love my dad and sister, but I have to come home and see my mom and take her abuse because I'm financially dependent on them. I want to become self sufficient so that I never have to see her again if I choose not to. I feel trapped right now so please help me. Any advice at all?
