I don't know what to make of this response from my niece to a family friend: I'm doing really well actually! i'm just taking some personal space from my parents and the whirlwind of chaos that comes with them. I'm sorry my mom has been sending you emails and such, i know she's worried, with good cause, but I just sort of decided that I don't want the stability of my life to depend on whether or not my parents and I are okay. Because I'm not alright with losing everything I work for everytime something happens. I'm doing alot better now that I am away from them, however I do not keep in contact with them at all. My mother has been constantly emailing tons of my friends and friends parents. So I'm sure i've seen what she has to say many times. I don't trust her word at all, and most of the things she has said to other parents have turned out to be lies, so I'm not sure I really want to see what she has to say anymore. Thank you so much for respecting my privacy, I really do appreciate everything and hearing from you!
