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.

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

Show thread

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
