  • I want to escape...

    I'm 17. I turn 18 next month. Last year my father was arrested and is set to be in prison for a long time. My mom is currently filing a divorce from my dad, and I worked payed for my own things, my phone, my braces, and somwtimes food. My mom had a bf within a month and she was late on rent. Now we are forced to move by the 15. My mom isnt a dependable option. She's crazy, she snaps and tried to overdose on pills. She's constantly kicked ME out and one night I got tired of her...and I left with my friend the next day she called saying she was going to press charges. So I should up back home. She's caused so much damage, she told me she wished I was dead. That she hated me. But now that we don't have no where else to go, my mom and my little bro and sister and going to a shelter. My older bro and younger bro are renting an apartment. But I want to move in with my boyfriend and his family. They have already offered. But I'm so depressed, cause I'm 17 unemployed, I dont know how to drive, no car, I can't do anything right now. I just want to give up!
