I’m 17 years old, graduating high school in May, turning 18 in April. I am wanting to move out of my dad and step-mothers house and move in with my boss. I grew up living with my mother in California, but at 16 I was sent over to my dad to live with him. For 4-6 years, my step mom has been nothing but hateful towards me. We had a falling out 4-6 years ago, and ever since she treats me like a dog. She’s done petty immature things like sprinkle food, sugar, syrup, chips on my clothes in my room, eggs under pillows, dumb ****. She douses any of t food with salt so I can’t eat it, has locked me out of the house for hours on end after working and coming home from long mornings. She throws away my clothes, shoes, books, on a regular basis, anything I leave downstairs and not in my room. My most prevalent issue is when she steals my school work. I’ve had to replace my school laptop with a $250 out of my car savings, I’ve had to rewrite entire note books because she stole them. This morning I realized she stole both my anatomy and precalculs note books and my entire binder for school, which I had notes, work that needed to be turned in, important papers, paychecks from work worth almost $300. She calls me pathetic, trash, disgusting, rat, spoiled brat, special needs child, and more. My dad takes no action to end her behavior because if he does she gives him an ultimatum and holds out on him. My grandparents, aunt, uncle, and mother are furious over how she treats me and refuse to be anywhere near her, and they don’t even know the half of it, actually living with her. Ive been to 3 different high schools, I’ve lived on my own in Los Angeles for periods of time back home, I was a bit of a trouble maker in my younger years but now that I am almost adult, I’ve made a lot of changes in my life, I’ve been working hard for the past 2 1/2 years and have $4000 saved up for a car. I’m a manager where I work, and I work 80 hour periods. My dad only takes me to school in the morning when he gets home from work and during the week I’m at work, and he goes out with his wife every night. The only times I see him is when he takes me to school and on his days off, when he stays up all night and drinks behind his wife’s back. I rarely ask my dad for money, I provide my own school supplies, clothes, food(I literally don’t eat any of the food they purchase), I’ve bought my own phone and my own laptop, and I’m about to buy my own car. But I’m so tired to living somewhere where the one important thing I need goes missing, it’s just too much and she crossed the line when she literally took ALL of my work, notes, and more. I have 5 months before I turn 18, but I’m capable of leaving now. My boss lives in apartment behind my workplace and I’d have transportation to school in the morning, she said I can stay whenever I want and she wants me to move in as well. I’m simply tired and I need a way out. I love my dad but staying here for 5 more months so he can say he “cared” isn’t work it anymore. This is taking a lot out of me and it would be more peaceful for ALL of us if I just left. Please help me!!_
