    I don't want to live like this anymore.

    Hi so i'm 15 and adopted but I want to move out when I turn 16.My mom has been verbally abusive my entire life. Recently she has gotten physical and I am honestly positive the when she gets back from her business trip things will continue to get worse. Once when I was 8 and stole something from her she told me to wait outside so that the dhs woman could come get me. It was night time and cold all i had was my pj's and a bandanna. I just wanna get out before she takes me out.

      If you feel like it is best for you to leave immediately having a safe place to go would be the most important step to take.
