  • I dont want to live with my grandma anymore

    After my dad died a few years ago my grandma has been very sad she has been drinking and smoking when she previously hadn’t. My house has tons of clothes everywhere and we have mice and ants (as pests) and I’m very unhappy living there. A total of 4 people live there me my grandma my grandpa and my little sister (14 this year). My mom who had previously not been there very often, lets us come over every weekend and we have a bedroom all to ourselves(at my grandmas we all sleep in the living room together and my sister sleeps on a mattress on the floor). And we each have a bed although mine is a pullout couch, but I digress it’s better than a bed with springs poking me every night. My mom does drink but she always has and she doesn’t yell at us like my grandma, and me and my sister actually respect my mom more than my grandma. My grandma will only accept the best grades from me and my sister because she screams about me having even c's. So I’m just wondering because I turn 17 this year if I should just wait until I turn 18 or try to get out of my grandma’s house and try to live with my mom or do something what do you recommend I do?
