I wouldn’t normally do something like this, but recent events have left me no choice.
I’m 18 and I need to leave my home immediately.
I’m asking that anyone who can, PLEASE HELP.
Here’s the story.
A month ago, my mom’s live-in boyfriend sexually assaulted me. I don’t want to get into details about what happened because I’m still processing it myself.
When I told my mother, she called me a liar. We got into a fight that turn physical and I left to stay with a friend for a few days. After which she let me come home.
She told me she believed me, but made sure to let me know that it wasn’t entirely his fault. Apparently he admitted, but said that I had been tempting him for a long time and since he was drunk he finally gave in.
I was disgusted.
But I thought I could get past it, because she had made him move out and even though she was blaming me, I had no where else to go.
Yesterday he moved back in.
We all sat down and he apologized and said that he knows he has a drinking problem and he’s working on it.
I don’t believe him.
And now I know I can no longer live here.
None of my friends parents want to get in the middle of it and neither does my extended family. So I have no where to go.
I found a studio apartment that I can move into, but I don’t have enough for the rent and the security deposit right now and on top of that I need to get my car fixed in order not have to rely on my mom for transportation to and from school and work. (I go to community college and work at a restaurant.)
Right now I need a total of $800 to take care of everything.
PLEASE. PLEASE. PLEASE.
Help me if you can.
I made a new Tumblr, email, and PayPal for this, because my mom has access to my Tumblr and I don’t want her knowing I’m reaching out to what she would call “strangers” for donations.
But the people from Tumblr are just as much my family as anyone else.
I’ve been running my blog for 2 years and have gotten really close to many of you.
I can’t stay here. I don’t feel safe. I don’t feel wanted. I’m afraid to sleep, because that lunatic might come into my room.
If you can.
My PayPal Email is firstname.lastname@example.org
