Hi Willow, I think I have answered one of your other posts. I hope I can help you or at least give you some suggestions. You should never go without your meds just to please someone else. And it doesn't seem like your Mom is trying any too hard to please you. I hope you won't take offense at my asking this but are your parents wanting you to stay with them for financial reasons? Is your income helping them ? If so, I would get out of there so fast. You deserve to have your own life and if you can find a place for yourself and puppy I would do it. I wouldn't even tell them ahead of time. When you are ready you should just go. I realize this may not be at all possible but I feel you are not being treated very well and in fact it seems like your parents abuse you. Can you get any other finanacial assistance to be on your own? I think your life might improve if you do not have to take the problems your parents give you. And having to stay in your room to avoid them isn't a good solution. I'm afraid you feel trapped and that isn't good. But if you look at this from the point of someone else reading your post it seems your parents aren't good for you right now and I am afraid it is making your health suffer. My ideas probably sound awful to you but I truly believe you deserve to have a peaceful life. Please don't take offense at anything I suggested. I would like to know that you can have a better life. Please let me know how you are doing and try to take good care of yourself.
Hi Willow, I'm glad the responses have helped you. I noticed that you like to read just as I do - read everything in sight, and I also love to needlepoint. I can do my stitching for hours, just lose myself in it and that helps pass time. If there is anything else I can do for you please let me know. If you want an email partner I will be glad to email you and we can talk more often. I'll leave that up to you. Don't want to interfere. It's nice to know we have some things in common. Again, take good care and give that little puppy a big kiss from me. Had to have my precious poodle put to sleep a few weeks ago so I know how much a pet is loved. My dog was almost 17 and faded very fast.
Good Morning Willow,
I am so sorry your living conditions have become unbearable.
First of all, IMHO, you are being abused verbally by both your parents. No one should be exposed to the kind of treatment you are enduring every day. So lets put our heads together and see if we can figure this out.
Tell me about your dog, what kind of a puppy is he? I love my dog. She is a doberman, black and tan of course.
I am going to post a link here for you so you can read up on subsidized housing.
Just click on the link and you should be taken right to the site. There is a lot of info there.
You have already received some wonderful support from are members. You never have to be alone when we are here.

Willow, do look at the website that Kitt has posted for you. You may not be working with the right agency and there may be many other agencies that can help you since you are already on disability. I have a son who has epilepsy and you woud be surprised at all the help that is available to him. He works as a teacher aide but doesn't make enough to live on his own. There are group homes ( very good and safe ones) that are available to him. He is also entitled to grants from the state for living expenses since he makes under the amount of money that would disqualify him. In other words he is entitled to grant money to help him meet his living expenses since he doesn't earn enough to be on his own. You have a computer so sit down and look up all the possiblities from the website Kitt gave you. You really should be able to find something that will get you out on your own and into a safe place to live. Whoever you contact, you should let them know you are being abused. They may work faster to get you help. You deserve a better life. And please don't give your parents a thought in this process. They are treating you worse than an animal. Please, please do look up the website.
