GET HELP PLEASE

Hi, I know exactly how you feel. In just a few paragraphs you explained what life was like for me pretty much since I can remember. My father was addicted to pain killers and anxyolitic drugs which messed up with his already messed up brain. So substitute your mother for my father and you've got the same story pretty much. My mom didnt do anything apart from argue but woulndt pack her stuff and get us out of there. She used all kinds of excuses, being a God-fearing woman or being scared of what he'd do to her if he found it...point is there were excuses and at the end of the day parents should take care of their children.
I know its very hard for you to understand this now but your mom is a very sick person. She has severe issues, mental health issues, probably things that happened to her in her past...and she is also destroying her brain by medicating and alcohol...imagine it like so. Its like she has a deep wound and she keeps throwing dirt and alcohol in it which makes it even worse, infected and she is by now suffering with huge infection on top of the original painful wound...instead of going to hospital to sort the cut out (metaphorically speaking) she makes it worse till the "poison" is so into her she cant think or act straight...you get the picture I hope.
This is HER choice. She chose to be like so for whatever reason. I know she is your mom and you love her and the things she tells you are so painful (especially when she sais she'll die and her death will be in your hands-my dad used to do that aaaall the time to me), and you feel that althought its wrong, she might be right cause after all she knows you best, but its NOT true. She has absolutely no clue why she is doing that because her emotions and brain is so far gone...you should not treat her right now as a logical person. And as long as she is "high" and "addicted" the abuse is only going to get worse and worse and as time goes by she will get more and more dangerous. Im telling you this because this is exactly what happened to me.
You need help. And you need to leave this place. Please consider the option of talking to someone. Even if they cannot get you out of this place right away, you need to find a person that will help you. Even tell you how to protect yourself when she is in crisis mode. You need to let people know of what you are going through.
