  • She makes me leave

    Can I be a real runaway if my mother tells me to leave and sends me texts messages telling me not to come home ever, and she sends pictures of breaking my stuff, or trashing it. And then on my PAYDAY every 2 weeks, she threatens to call the cops on me for being a runaway if I don't come home and pay her my paycheck money. I am 16.5 and live in Oregon. I stay with my just recently turned 18 yo boyfriend and his parents. We have been together for over a year now. My father is ill with cancer and my mother abuses drugs and alcohol. So she always demands my paycheck for her personal habbits or I will get the police called on me. Yet the other 13 days she refuses to let me home. My 14 yo brother even lives with his gf and her family it is so bad at home for us. But we have too much love and guilt to involve child protection services.

    How can I be a runaway when she forced me to leave? I am trying to become emancipated but she says she can still call me in as a runaway and ruin all of my progress. I am confused as to where to go and do now.
