hi...I live in north carolina...im only 14...but I am trying to do my best to plan to be emancipated when I turn 16. I really dont know how to go about this. But i just know that I need to have it planned out. Because if I fail at this...than my parents will make the last two years in their house pure misery. Here's my story... Ever since I was a small child...I have witnessed things that were traumatizing. My father was abusive to my mother...physically, emotionally, and mentally. They often fought leaving my younger brother and I crying ourselves to sleep. My father was addicted to marijuana and experimented with other various substances. Throughtout all of this...as my mother watched her children living in constant fear...she chose to continue the life of pain and unbearable suffering. My father often commited adultry and was involved in many other terrible things. While all of this continued...I began to commit acts of self mutilation. My parents finally saved there marriage. There is no longer any drugs or cheating. My family is now involved very seriously with a church...We attend three times a week. WE attend activities involving it around 5 times a week. This church is very pentocostal. They speak in tongues and fallout and various "wonders". I am extremely uncomfortable with their style in worship. This church is to mewrong and to be quite frank...scary. Ive been attending for over a year. I am just so uncomfortable. Because of this my mother expressesto me thatI am un grateful and undeserving of god. I made the mistake of kissing my boyfriend...and its been almost a year since I hae been able to leave my house without an adult or a member of church. I am being completely controlled. Almost a year ago I made a giant mistake...i took my uncles car and drove it to a friends house. I got caught by my parents but no police were ever informed...I cant come to forgive and forget all that has happened. my parents make me completely miserable and control every aspect of my life. I am no longer cutting. And I am making usually straight A's (for the past three years). With all of this...if I can find a good living situation...do I stand any chance at getting emancipated at 16?
