Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.
I believe that I can help. Your parents are neglecting you and endangering you by putting you in a situation with an irresponsible person and not taking care of you themselves.
What your parents are doing to you is irresponsible and harmful and is against the law. You must get help locally.
You are being endangered and you can and should get help right away.
