My mother abandoned me when I was about 10 years old, and my dad was never in my life. Now he's dead, and my entire family is dead, except for my grandmother who's been verbally and mentally abusive for the last 12 of my 23 year life. I have extreme problems with my allergies, so I can't even work. I don't qualify for government help. And my health insurance doesn't make getting the treatment for the allergies I need easier. 

But I NEED to get out of this house. I will not claim to be a perfect angel. I'm not. But I also don't believe anything I could do or say would excuse being called all sorts of names, put down, and lied about to the neighbours. I've suffered from low self-esteem my whole life and depression since my mother abandoned me. My grandmother doesn't want to admit that she's fed into its downward spiral. Every time we have a fight, she starts her abuse, and I explode, she blows it off as being nothing but my mental illness. She has even said that my accusations of verbal abuse aren't true.

In April of 2016 I was put in a mental hospital by the ER because I tried to commit suicide one night after yet another fight. I was away from my grandmother for 9 days and I was the happiest I'd ever felt. Within two weeks of returning, things went back to normal. And ever since my grandmother has been diagnosed with dementia, it's even worse.

I can't take it here anymore, but I have nowhere to go. No way to support myself. I need to get out and soon. I don't know what I'm going to do if I don't.
