  • I am stuck in a bad situation

    I recently moved and i ended up moving away from my girlfriend, we are on oppoaite ends of the state, we have been together for years. I have two horrible parents that have forced me into a religion i dont believe and have been verbally abusive and have cause alot of emotional distress. My girlfriend has great parents, would it be leagal to move in with them since they are basically my family, i only ask because i am 16. Normally i would just push through the abusive behavior of my parents but i cant take it anymore, last week my girlfriend found out she had cancer which is why she has been coughing up blood. I have been really emotionally unstable and have been slightly suicidal because of all this. WHAT DO I DO IN THIS HUGE DISASTEROUS SITUATION?
