    I am 17 and I lib with my mother and my stepfather. Things never been good with him and they got worse 6 years ago. H started drinking a lot, he started getting home at 4-5 am. When he gets home drunk he yells, he insults me, and even hit me once. Thing between him and my mom are not good but the thing isn’t that she doesn’t wanna leave him. I’m a junior in High chill and those things are affecting me. I can’t sleep because of their fights, I can’t go out because they won’t let me. I literally go to school and back to my house. I can’t hang out with friends. This situation is killing me. I have a 10 year old sister and they make me babysit her like if she was Muño responsibility I love her and all but I need to go out. I’m sick and tired of babysitting a burn that’s not mine. I don’t have fun. I don’t know what going out with friends feels like. I’m pretty sure It’s illegal to force me to babysit but I honestly don’t know what to do. My mom is blind. Way worse she’s in love and Love makes people blind. I really want to Move out of move out of my house but I really don’t know what to do anymore. Please help I would really appreciate it.
