  • i may need some help

    my girlfriend is in a bad place and i really want to help. she’s 14. her grandma adopted her and she lives with her aunt and grandma and is constantly put down by her grandma saying ‘you’re a disappointment’ or ‘you’re a failure’ ‘you’re acting like a child’ ‘don’t you dare text anyone painting me as the bad guy’ her grandma grabbed her arm and called her a disappointment while they were doing tests for seizures. i’m scared for her and i personally believe she should run away but we’re afraid that whoever she goes to will get arrested and if she gets caught her grandma might actually beat here. at the doctors she had a panic attack and her grandma punished her by taking her phone and banning her from her room other then sleeping. we live in california so she won’t be arrested. i could really use some help
