December 26th 2016, 12am (ish): The night I called the police on my mother and left after she raged at me for not wanting to talk to her about my sexual assault.
*That same night I went to live with a former college professor who turned out to be a living nightmare*

March 9th 2017 (or around this time): Went back to live with my mother who claimed to be worried that I’d be in the street. I had no choice since my friend couldn’t house me anymore and I was not returning to the same shelter I came from under no circumstances.
March 19th 2017: My mother kicks me out.
