i have grown up in this town my whole life and i want to escape the area, it humiliating , to have your parents face all over the new,people always wanting to know your situation, not having any support groups or people to talk to that are just like you and losing all your friends cause you are not able to stay the night at anyone's, house and you are like in a prison and cant get out. I miss my dad to death my mother dead and gone away i dont know my brothers or sisters that well i have my grandma who is older, i feel disconnected with my foster parent cause she is always pushing me to do thing that are not in my right mind for example, she always saying" laci you need to be more productive" "laci you need to stop worrying" " laci this laci that" well i get stress out and i get anger and depressed i feel like i am not good enough for anyone and that i never do anything right, i go to an alternative school and i work my butt off i am working on getting my credits, up and i do after school things monday through thursday from 4:00 to 6:00 i have a tutor on monday, tuesday, and thursday from 6:30 to 8:30 and i feel overwelmed and stressed out all the time. What could i do to make my foster mom not nag on me all the time and to feel more better about myself and to get a life back. Also how am i going to find a place to call home and a family to call my own. i am 15 years old and i am going insane. I am always isolating myself to escape the pain and i dont know how to get through this anymore its eating me alive and i figured someone on here would at least know some things that would help me out in some way,i have 2 more months until my perment placement and until thing i need some coping skills to hang on my foster mom says mine are not the healthest ones. I NEED ADVICE PLEASE HELP!!!!

I know this has been posted a year ago, I wanted to check in and see how everything is going. I am a former foster youth and currently a 2014 all-star. I would love to help any chance I can get. I hope all is well! -Jess
