    You have no one to turn to. And even if you did, you wouldn't really get the compassion or love you need from them. Or they wouldn't understand. You have nowhere to go. You're in you're home, and running away gets nothing but trouble. You're lost, and not really living. But just...

    Want Her Gone

    My aunt is such a user and no one listens when I try to tell them. She fakes pain to get drugs and money to buy illegal prescriptions. She comes in and disrupts my life and my mother does nothing about it even though she knows its causing me distress. I just want my aunt gone.
