  • Friend With Bad Home Life

    My friend lives in Florida and I live in Maryland, I want to find a way to get her here. Her mom is verbally abusive and Bipolar. Im on call with her as im writing this and her mom just blew up at her, saying my friend needed therapy, that she was insane, and all these other things. It’s really upsetting, sends my friend into complete panic attacks. She has other family in florida but most are either in contact with her mom or are just as crazy. Thats why I want to get her here. I know my mom wont care if she stays here but im still going to ask her. I want to get her out of this situation, she doesn’t deserve this and it hurts to watch it happen multiple times a day, she’s always getting yelled at for something. Im proud of her though she fights back every time instead of just enduring what her mom is doing. I’ve witnessed them argue and her mom throws me and other people in whenever she gets the chance, she also said that my friends mental health could wait and that school was more important than it.
