  • i have no idea what to do

    i'm 15, i'm currently living in my mother's friend's home, with my sister. we are living here cause we can not afford to stay anywhere else. she is verbally abusive, and emotionally abusive mostly to my sister, and occaisionally me. she's mostly very neglectful to me, and i think somehow favors me more than my sister at the same time?

    i have depression and anxiety, which are completely ignored, and im too afraid of mentioning it to my mother in fear she will act how she acts with my sister. im just so done living with both of them. i wanna get out. but i still have to wait 3 more freaking years.

    if i call cps, what would happen? im scared of going into foster care, ive heard a lot of horror stories.
