  • Struggling with Family

    Hello, I'm not very intuitive about doing these types of things. I'm 17 and I'd like to move in with my best friend and his family. Currently my status right now is that I have no parents aside my mother who is in Alabama. I'm currently being supported by my brother and sister and we live in a small home. I am currently searching for a job as well, but at my age its very hard and frustrating. You see, my best friend and his family are willing to take me because one they're military, two they have a large two storied house. Three they can support me along with their children. They make me feel at home and piece and when I'm with them I don't have to worry about my depression and my work ethic for school. When I'm at home, I am guilt tripped over and over. I'm told to clean and if its not their forte I'm criticized. If I fail a test my mother calls all the way from Alabama threatening and scolding me that she'll make me move up there with her. You see. I'm very popular with my friends and I'm family oriented, so I love all my friends like they're my family. If I move, I might have a break down and who knows what'll happen. I try so hard in school, but I can barely study when I'm the peasant and my siblings are acting like they're the royal family. I've tried to talk to them, but all I get is being scolded and being told that our mother should've taken me. I just can't anymore and I wish I could live with my best friend or so my second family. I spend the night there 3 days at a time at most because I feel safe there. I need help and I just don't know what to do. Help
