Hi Lonely,

I can only imagine what it is like to have no home or job. Where do you stay? Where do you go at night?

You are too young to be out on your own with no resources. I think you should go to your local social services and explain your situation and they will help you to find a home and get a job. I guess in this situation you would want to be your own advocate and sign up for help. So please check with them and see what kind of help you can get.

I didn't think your mom could kick you out of the home at your age. She is responsible for you. Has she given up on you? Did she say why? Are you not in school? At your age you should still be in school. Why are you not? I know that I have a lot of questions, but this doesn't sound right. And in order for us to help you, we need the answers. There must be a reason your mom has kicked you out. Please tell us about it. And why you are not in school. You need an education to make it in this world. It isn't easy without one.

Please fill us in with the details.

Hugs, Karen

Karen is right honey.  Go to Social Services, get all the help you can to get back in school, find a place to live, employment help, help with food until you can get on your feet.  You are a teenager, I assure you, you will have good times ahead but it sounds like you need to do some work at the moment to get yourself in a good place.  Seek free Legal advice, whatever it takes.  I am sure you are feeling abandoned, anyone would.  I had a very cold hearted mom and all she wanted was me out of the house.  She never told me she loved me, or hugged me or gave me any encouragement.  I know how empty and alone that feelings is, so, when I had children, I kissed them everyday, read stories to them every night, told them I loved them everyday (even when they were teenagers and we did not always agree), I always encouraged them to do their best, love themselves and be kind to other people.  In some ways I feel I made up for her emotional neglect of me by not continuing her style.  Anywho, tap all your helpful resources, hopefully you will start feeling better soon.  There are people who care and this forum is full of them.  When you get on your feet, you will feel better.

Take care,

Just dropping in to say that you aren't what you say you are. You are worth just as much as everyone else, and have the basic rights to happiness as everyone else has. You are 16, so there has to be something that can help you, a social institution or so. I'm sorry I can't be of any help there, as I only know how it works in the Netherlands. Here, we have special schools for those who have trouble learning, I think you would fit the bill. Maybe there is something similar in the country you live in. Worth finding out I think!

All the very best my friend!
