We have to move... - November 26th 2010, 09:13 PM

So basically my family is being forced out of our home. Here's how it happened.

I have always lived with my grandparents AND my parents. It was all fine and dandy, but my grandpa has always been abusive emotionally. He's only been physical with us once or twice. I'm 17 now. My grandma died 2 years ago and ever since, the abuse has escalated BIG TIME. We no longer feel safe in our house, and we can't even have friends over because we're so afraid of what he might do or say to us. The house belongs to my mom and dad, and he doesn't even pay rent to live with us. He doesn't have to pay for anything. The house is ours. But he won't leave. We know that if we ask him to leave, it'll be a huge thing, and we will have to have the police called to remove him off the premisis. We don't want to go to that length. So we are moving. Basically, the for sale sign goes up tonight and I KNOW that's going to cause more problems because he doesn't even know yet. We're pulling the rug out from under him and he doesn't even know it. My room is almost completely packed up. I only need a few more boxes. It's not fair of us to not let him know directly, but everyone I talk to like my mom and my mom's friends and aunts and uncles say that he deserves it...I just...I love him. Even though he hurts us so bad I love him lots. He's my grandpa, afterall. We are going tonight to look at a new house, and there's one more in another city we are looking at. The new city and the one I'm in now is only about a 15 minute drive away and so I would still be able to go to the same school and do all the same stuff in the city I'm in now. Lots of kids I have met in the past live in the new city. Anyway, I have to go...But I'm really scared to move. I feel so forced out of it. My room has been my room for so many years. It's just...been mine. now I'm losing it and someone else is going to be living in my room....in my house...peeing in MY TOILET. It's really hard to think about. Mom and dad keep reminding me that I will have a new room and a new house and stuff. But it's just...not the same. I can't imagine adjusting....or like, accepting anything other than what I've got. I've never mvoed before. and this is so hard for me to think about. I don't want to move I wish I could stay in this house forever. I don't want to give it up. It's all I know.

I'm sorry to hear about the situation surrounding this, and I know moving can be a bit of a daunting experience. It's really weird to think about other people living in your sanctuary. It will take some getting used to, but I'm sure you'll be able to do it. When I moved, I set up my room to look similar to the one I used to sleep in, which actually helped a lot. Just give it time, I'm sure things will start looking up!

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the [mome raths] outgrabe.
