I really need to move out of my parents house, asap. We’ve never really had a good relationship, with my dad being increasingly physically abusive and my mother standing by and letting it happen. I am 20 years old, and this has been going on since I was 9. I am in university, though they didn’t allow me to go away. I had been accepted to schools out of my town, but they didn’t let me go and said that if I stayed they would pay. They lied. My mom set me up a student loan, so I am paying for it entirely on my own. They don’t support what I chose (English major) and keep saying I may as well be dead since what I want to do is useless anyway. My friend has offered to let me move into a room in her house until I can find somewhere more stable. My parents are going to cancel my schooling, though I am not even sure if they can. My mom also said I can’t move out until I pay the loan off, but she cosigned for it, so doesn’t that mean she pays if I tell the bank I can’t? I’m going to move out regardless of what they say. I’m tired of being abused and treated like nothing. Opinions and thoughts on the loan/situation/next steps would be appreciated!
