My mother has smoked Crack Cocaine for some years, still does pills, smokes marijuana. She has left me a drug houses when I was a baby, she has left me with my 80 year old grandmother who I believe has been brainwashed by my mother. She gets more then 3,000$ a month from my grandmother. She has pawned off not only my belongings, but my older sisters. She has a very bad problem, I can not even tell you how many times she yells and calls me names a day. Whenever she doesn't get money from my grandmother, I'm the only one to defend her so sometimes things do get a little physical. I need legal advice to get out of my current situation. I would like to live with my sister where I do have a positive influence in my life. By my mom not staying home and caring for my grandmother it causes me to loose so much time in school. I miss about 94 days a year because my grandma is so bad off and because no one is here to help her. I am the only male in my family with my last name so the pressure is heavy to take care of her. I lost my Father in January of 2004 (alcoholic). All I'm doing is asking for help to get out of my current situation or try to help my mother out. She does NOT admit to having a drug problem. So that's how I know it is serious. She has caused me to go into a deeper depression ever since my dad passed away. Thank you.
I feel for you honey. You have the world on your shoulders and I understand that it is weighing you down. Please seek help from a counselor or teacher at school. If that is not a possibility, contact the Department of Social Services or Child Protective Services in your state. You can google these. It is important that you reach out to a person of authority and explain your circumstances. You can get a court to order that you live with your sister and get help for your grandmother. In fact, they might be able to help your mother too, if she wants help. She might wake up to her illness if you get the right people involved.
We are here to help you anyway we can. If you want to tell us your location, city and state only, we might be able to help you locate the appropriate authorities. I will friend you and if you friend me back we can talk in private, if you would like. It is very important that you seek assistance from the correct people.
