Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Hello lovelies. I'm about to talk about some serious stuff, so just a trigger warning for abuse atm.

I wish I could say that things have gotten better, but that's not the truth....and I want to be truthful with this new year.
Some people know, and some do not know my situation at the moment. Here goes nothing
My drunk abusive father wants to kick me and my mom out of the house. I've had to flee various times to my brothers and other siblings' houses because the situation got out of hand. Cops have been called, people have been hit including me. Still, my asshole of a father remains in the apartment.

As I type, I sit in my brother's room, safe from my other toxic apartment. I'm scared all the time, even when I'm not home. I shouldn't have to fear the home that I live in. My father isn't even a father to me anymore. He's just a cruel tick that feeds off of emotions. Our lease is up next month, and I'm hoping to whatever horned god that we move out by then. I'm also getting a job to raise money for a new place for me and my bruised mother. I'll raise whatever I can to get out of this situation.

I won't be drawing for obvious reasons, but I'll still keep in contact with all of you. I'm not going anywhere.

Another thing to anyone enduring an abusive relationship (with anyone), cut them out. They don't deserve your attention or support. Get out of that relationship, hun. You won't regret it.
It's going to take a long time to heal, but I promise you it'll get better once that toxic person is out of your life.

Thank you so much for reading and listening.

I'm doing the best I can to look on the bright side of things. All I can really do is retreat to my brother's place when it gets too intense.

I praise your brother for being there for you. Maybe these will help...if only just a little bit:

My mom and I already found two places that we can afford. We just have to wait until February when the lease is up

I'm mostly suffering from the trauma but I'm still holding on. The least I can do is stay out of/avoid the house as much as possible. Hug
