  • I want to move in with my older cousin

    My mom is bipolar and ever since a 2 years ago (when i was 11) we have started fighting every day. Sometimes up to five times a day. I try to calm her down by keeping my voice calm, but then she just keeps yelling at me and tells me that I'm horrible and evil. I was adopted by my dad now, because my biological dad died when i was one. My dad now is old and he doesn't really get involved except for when he gets annoyed at us arguing. Then he tells me to get out of the room. My mom constantly tells me how horrible I am, and its really bad. One time I had a severe headache and she yelled at me telling me that she hope it hurt all while I was crying because the pain was so bad, & I DO NOT cry. I want to be adopted by my cousin, who's old enough to be my uncle. He has two kids and a wife. He's from my unbiological dad's side. He and his wife are my secondary guardians after my grandparents. My grandparents are still working and I don't want to live with them. Can I live with my cousin & how can I approach the topic?
