    Part One - Stressing

    I was living with my mom for 18 years. A few months after turning 18, I moved in with my dad. No big reason, just because I wanted to give him a chance or something. For a while, he was decent to live with. He cleaned now and then, helped put the groceries now and then; it's not...

    Yay! I am sooooo happy he got custody of me!

    I can continue to go to the same school and I am safe from my mom. I seriously think she is losing her mind. I feel super bad for her but I am uncomfortable around her.
