Hi liv260,
This is a lot to deal with as a 16 year old. Unfortunately, this is clearly your life and your Mom (Mum) really needs to be the one taking care of you rather than you taking care of yourself. You are still a child at 16 years old.

Unfortunately, the best thing you can do is TRY to talk to your Mother and Father to try to get them to understand that there is a NEED that they need to fulfill. You should not be worrying about how to obtain food. It is also unfortunate that sometimes, your basic necessity of life may be given to you by your parents although nothing more will come from it such as love and attention. I am sorry that you are dealing with these things.

Is there anyone in the family that you can talk to, to try and intervene?

Please keep in touch with us so we can try and help you.
