Non-conforming gender, 15, IL
Ok, so my mom has been mentally abusing me for years and I’ve finally decided that enough is enough. I want to move out, but the laws near me won’t allow it, I think. I just want others’ inputs before I make a decision.

Thank you for reaching out to Teen Line. It must be so difficult to deal with your mom mentally abusing you. It is not okay for her to do this.
I want to give you a resource called List of 99 coping skills. It has many different activities you can do to try to help you cope with what you are going through. Also, if you ever feel unsafe at home, you can call Child Protective Services at (800) 422-4453.
I would highly recommend calling us here at Teen Line at (800) 855-4673 anytime from 6pm-10pm Pacific Standard Time, or text “TEEN” to 839863 from 6pm-9pm PST so we can know more about what you are going through and we can give you better resources.
I hope you find this helpful.
