what to do now...i need help with this...please?
my family sucks right now both parents are really abusive but in different ways and are divorced the entirety of my moms family believes my mom is a little angel and my dads in afraid of my dad so ive decided today after i decided to tell mom yet again how i feel and her yet again treat me badly so ive decided now that i need out of the house i need to get out and do something i dont know so the choices are: emancipation and get a job and apartment, foster care, live with a friend (if i could find one who'd be willing to take me), mercy ministries (in another state & residential care & school goodness), pressley ridge (though im not quite "troubled" enough to go there but its similar to foster care but with therapy & stuff), stay in the situation to endure more abuse & more pain & flunk out of school (because considering, my grades arent too good no matter how hard i try its never good enough) something else...any ideas?...when i was little at 16 i never thought this would be my life that last part what i meant was when i was little as in like 5 i never dreamed at 16 how old i am now that my life would be this bad...but it doesnt matter because everyone in the world thinks i should just stay in this situation anyways apparently r**e is now insignificant along with daily beatings and complete mental breaking me down apparently this doesnt warrant anything apparently neither does the fact that my mom mixes her medication with a 6 pack of beer every night apparently this means nothing...how stupid am i for writing this question...
