What are my options if we can no longer afford the second mortgage?

The house I live in is owned by my parents and myself. About a 1.5 years ago, my mom needed money. I took a second mortgage out on my name. She promised she would pay the second mortgage. She was doing pretty good until I received a phone call asking for the payment. We are struggling as it is with the first mortgage. She now refuses to pay the second mortgage. About a year ago, she said that she would not let me sell the house. However, a few months ago, she claimed she "surrendered" the house to me. We don't want to live in the house anymore. What are my options?
