  • 17 runaway

    I’m 17 years old and don’t turn 18 til July. I live in Pennsylvania and currently went to my cousins to get away from my mom; i made the choice of wanting to stay because i’ve been dealing on and off since i was a child with my moms toxic behavior. i’ve literally been doing dishes since i was 6/7 and would clean other places around the house. i’m tired of hold my tongue for my mom ,so i don’t know what to do to get out of her home without causing a big problem.
