  • I don't really know what to do

    I made a report around the last week of November to CPS and they only left a voicemail I'm not sure what my aunt told them but they never came I left really hopeless and wanted to run away so many times. I live with my grandma and she had threatened to kill my dog before and that she doesn't know what to do with me and that I should leave and stuff. She's also hit me in the face with a bottle (she threw it at me cuz she got mad for no reason) also she's thrown a glass bowl at me but I ran and she made my little brother clean it. My grandma and aunt are so over protective they won't let me go anywhere because they think I will turn out like my mom ( on drugs and having sex and lots of children) I hate that they compare me to her and always remind me of it I really want to leave but I don't know how I need help or some advice. Is there anyway I could move out or put a restraining order against them or something. Btw if I didn't mention it already I'm a 15 year old girl in Texas.
