Fore warning this is sort of a sad story so if you don't want to deal with some negativity for now just hit the back button thank you . I'm at a crossroads. I'm 19 and I have my whole life ahead of me. I'm good looking, smart and just as of recently have been making enough money to support myself. I'm currently living with my mom. To say the least she problems. She is an alcoholic, and also probably a schizophrenic. I don't know if all the drug use has driven her brain to a point of damage, however I do know she is barely functioning anymore. She is in her late 40's too. I just don't fucking know whether I should try and help her or just up and leave to a cheap hotel room until I can afford to apply for schooling and rent my own place. Dealing with her negativity really brings me down you know. She always has drama and problems and I am always the kind hearted kid who sits and tries to help her. I feel like if I just up and leave then things will turn even more downhill for her. She won't go to rehab and I can't stand her anymore. Should I leave or stay and help?
