I live with my mother and I am almost 16 years old. My mother hit me in the past and she yells on a daily basis about nothing. I do my best to be helpful in her house, cleaning it and helping take care of the animals but she does not appreciate my efforts. She has also done really weird things like gotten really mad and drunk and then purposely urinated on the floor and forced me to clean it up. She tells me on a fairly regular basis that she is depressed and wants to kill herself. She won't let me visit my other family over the summer vacation and she does other vindictive and passive aggressive things. I am trying to finish school so that I can lead a productive life, but feel that I am unable to do so in her house, so is there a way I can get away?
