Discussion of domestic abuse
I'm always having to defend myself around my mother. She HATES some particular friends of mine, namely the ones I find the most comfort in, where I feel the utmost free in sharing my day-to-day life with. Not to mention the problems I experience with my abusive parents themselves.
Just being able to talk to someone, especially when they are able to make helpful comments/replies with what you are experiencing and thusly 'prove' their empathy, takes such an enormous weight off you. Figuratively and literally.
It's gotten to the point that the next time my mother brings up my friends and/or gaslights them, I'm going to have to say: "What I do with my friends is none of your business. I'm drawing a line here".
There's a good chance this will lead to me being kicked out again and possibly made homeless, but it needs to be said *sighs*.
My general practitioner said that I need to call the local hospital and/or Centrelink in regards to the matter of getting a social worker assigned to me, since I'm on the disability pension (my parents are actually my carers as designated by the government and receive payments each fortnight for this). But I'm going to attempt this tomorrow, most likely, while they are at work.
Once I have been assigned a social worker, I should be able to expedite the process of getting social housing assigned to me. Just a single unit, not much, but it'll truly be something special compared to my current living standards :)
