I won’t ask for alot and I don’t like to ask but I need help getting out of my house. My family is very abusive and controlling and I am constantly under alot of stress and depression. I have been trying to move out for the past 5 years. I have been beaten physically, verbally insulted by my mother calling me every horrible name in the book and mentally broken.
They have never supported me in any of my dreams or achievements. They only know how to have their way by manipulation. I have a 5-year old sister that I’m trying to protect from all the things that I have been through. I do not want her ending up the same way she doesn’t need the constant way of life.
I do know that I should have told authorities but one of two things would happen I would get beaten, or my mother would be out of jail the next day. She would also take whatever money I had for her own personal things before my own such as school. She would pull me out for weeks just to do chores she didn’t want to do.
I have grown up at the age of 16 like this with her. Now I live with a close friend of my mother and she is no different, all she does is sit around in the house and complains about what she should do to cure her boredom.
We have both been looking for jobs but they are very hard to find in our small town and no one will hire us. She has stopped trying to look for work while I have been looking for jobs out of state. She clings to the fantasy that we will live together forever and I no longer can take the strain.
I do not have a car nor license, because both my mother and aunt refuse to help with anything I have been kicked out several times over me staying in my room studying so that I can finally get a good education. She is also a filthy person who does not clean up after herself in any way. I also have to feed 2 dogs that my mother decided too leave me with and $100. They are both very big dogs that she had no business having which are now my responsibility.
This may seem like it is all over the place and I am sorry, I have plenty of other things that I have not said and I know it may not be a good reason and I would never ask for help even with the way things are, but I would really appreciate any kind of help.
