I know you haven't had much success in talking to your mom about
your depression, but have you spoken to her about
NeNe? I think she would want to know about
her taking your cell phone, and about
the threatening messages and other problems that have come up. I don't know the circumstances around her coming to live with you, but the money issue is probably best left between her and your mom. It's very responsible and caring of you to worry about
your parents' economic situation, and I really admire your maturity and thoughtfulness. That being said, your mom will have to make her own decisions about
how she hands out the cash, as much as I can understand why it bothers you (it would bother me, too!). I really hope you will talk to your mom about
your situation with NeNe. You haven't mentioned anything about
your other parent (your dad? stepdad?) and I wonder how he feels about
all of this. I'm sorry you feel like you can't confide in any of your friends, but I do hope that posting here will be helpful to you.
Living one day at a time.
