Welcome to the forum, although I’m sorry you find yourself in the situation you are in. I imagine it must have been a bit of a shock to have your mum say that to you, we always just accept that our parents are there to support us endlessly. However, it sounds as though things have been particularly difficult between you both at home. My ex-partner’s parents also gave him a similar ultimatum when he was 18. He was similarly shocked but it was actually the best thing that happened for him. He moved out and into a mate’s granny flat and was able to live it up for a few years, drink too much etc, all the things you want to do when you are young but can’t really do at home. Do you have a job yet or are you planning on going to uni etc? My first step would be securing employment and then trying to find a relatively cheap place to live (I think they advertise for granny flats on gumtree etc) or you could move in with a mate? It might be the freedom you need
