  • I'm 17 and I need to move out without my parents consent

    Im 17 and a year ago I was raped at my sister's college in a different state while she was in the room and allowed it to happen. I've been self harming, seeing several different therapists, and turning to substances for about 3 years and am recently clean of everything for 10 months thanks to the support from my boyfriend. I ended up telling my therapist about getting raped and she forced me to tell my parents who then questioned if it even happened or if I tried to stop it, they also didn't talk to my sister about what happened and then did nothing to help me. I've never been happy at home and my parents push me around, put immense amounts of stress and expectations on me, and try to control every aspect of my life. My boyfriend recently found out about me being raped and that my parents and sister did nothing and he wants me to move in with him. I graduate soon and my parents have control of my bank accounts and college fund. I'd leave within a night if it was possible to get total access to my money and make sure that I wouldn't have to ever go back. I'm 17 with three jobs, that my parents forced on me, and without a license. I need help on what I can do because I can't stay in that house anymore. Please.
