Trying to get out - October 6th 2010, 04:40 PM


My parents are abusive, and I"m trying to get out. I'm hitting some road blocks. I was told by a police officer to go to a victims services thing and that they would hand me money JUST for being abused. But I went there and they were like, "I don't know what you're talking about..." and so I went to a community services place they sent me to, and they were like, "I have no idea why they sent you here." SO they put me on the phone with a social worker, and she is trying to be an advocate for me to get children's services as involved as possible, as quickly as possible. As of now, I'm waiting for a social worker to be assigned to my file. When they do, I can begin the process of applying for learner's benefits. That's like welfare for kids...they pay you to go to school. I have a place to stay and a plan, Now I just need financial support to get there. I am working, but my job doesn't pay enough for me to sustain myself right now. It may in the future once I get more hours and a raise, but for now I have no idea what to do. Welfare won't help me because I'm not 18 yet, and can't make an exception.

This is frustrating. I'm tired of having to deal with the abuse, but I may not even get accepted for learner's benefits. That's my only hope.

First of all I love your two quotes it is so true that God comforts thoes who mourn and I truly hope you are feeling His comfort! I think it is so amazing how strong you are being! speaking out and telling people about the abuse youve had to go through is something that many people dont have the strength to do! i am so sorry that the process of getting financially stable and able to stand firm on your own two feet has been difficult. It seems to me that the system needs to be seriously revised because there are so many people just like you that need help! it is so understandable to be frustrated, waiting for something you NEED can be so hard! All i can say is to encourage you to keep working hard and trust that good things will happen.
God Bless
