asking for help to get away from an abusive living situation, boosts needed 

does anyone nearby (i'm in riverside county, in southern california) have a place i could stay in the near future? like, a couch i could sleep on? not yet, but it looks like things are gonna go to shit pretty soon no matter what i do, so it'd be nice to have an escape plan ready. my parents have been incredibly abusive since i moved back in with them, especially since they found out i was trans. today they went into my backpack and took all my hormones, and that's only the tip of the iceberg of the bullshit they've put me through. at the end of next month they wanna take me to mexico and i wanna be gone before then. please help.

see, this is why i love the fediverse

it's always been there for me even when nobody else was

thank you

:blacker_heart:

oh also i should mention

i wanna stay in california so i can stay on my health insurance and stay on my schizophrenia meds

that's like super duper important

this is an utterly shit situation in every way but i find myself... genuinely excited at the prospect of getting away from these abusive assholes

actually, i do suppose another state would be fine

the important thing is that i'm able to stay on my schizophrenia meds

wherever it is has to have good and immediate healthcare, is what i'm saying

@vantablack schizophrenia and meds are fucking tight. Keep on, I do not know anyone in the area unfortunately, hopefully you can bring your fire to a fight that you can win.

@vantablack have you also managed to set up a bank account your parents can't get at, or limit the amount of transfers you can do?

I did a search and apparently its possible to get an online account just by sending scans of your ID (which is normal procedure because of anti money laundering regulations)

@vfrmedia i have a checking account that's hidden from them, but i have to transfer money to my main joint checking to use it bc i don't have a debit card for it

@vantablack maybe worth applying for a debit card for this, so you have it in time for when you leave?

@vfrmedia i'd have to have it sent here, they might get to it first and question me about it

@vantablack hopefully as long as you have some way of independently accessing money hopefully you can use that until you get to Seattle..

@vantablack I'm sorry that you're in the situation that you're in, may you get the money and may you also get out of your situation as soon as possible, amen.

@vantablack

Mastodon is less a social media network, and more like a village. True, it's somewhere between the Village of the Damned and the Village People, but you get the overall thrust.

Good luck in getting out of this mess. If it's any consolation, I know plenty of people who have been in similar situations - and they got through.

@vantablack I'm glad you're here and I want to see you thrive
I always enjoy your posts and vantaradio :_gaysparkle:

@vantablack you don't have to go anywhere with anyone you don't want to. Also, if they're stealing your prescription medicattions you need to call the poliece on them or go down to the poliece department and file a report.

@lunar i'm a trans woman of color and my mom is a karen, i wouldn't count on the cops siding with me on this

@vantablack So then stick to objective facts. Tell the poliece that you're pretty sure your parents stole your medication and give them permission to search the property. If they find the medication literally anywhere besides in your room then it would be in your parent's posession. Posession of a controlled substance is a jailable offense. However, if you go this road you'll probably be evicted, sadly.

@vantablack then they can't do anything nor force you. You're an adult.
