  • It sucks to have to live under someone else. You'll just have to deal with her until your able to get out! Good luck.

  • you need to get a job and get out of there!! welfare pays for childcare so thats not an excuse and they help with moving expenses if you get a job somewhere else. talk to your case worker.

  • move into hud housing in the same city...i kno exactly how you feel and have been living in my new place for months now...it took some waiting and a lot of bullshit but its worth not hearing your mom...btw i'm 20 with a 14 mth old...add me...we're in similar situations...

  • get your name on all the section 8 or HUD housing lists....make sure you are doing everything you can to get a job...go to the employment office and work source. You will be able to do it if you WANT to. I would also look into some of the great grants that are given to single mothers for college... good luck

  • GET A JOB!!! Could you imagine if other people weren't paying for you to live? Your mother is a person that needs help and someone that your child should not be around until she gets that help. Move out and find a better solution all around. Get a job, go to work, and get a decent place to live in an area that you can find housing NOW. Hard ... yes but this is for your child put your needs aside and do what is right for that precious being.
