I meant moving to some place like Alaska where it's hard to travel home and you'd never see them, but Atlanta, anywhere in GA, a nearby state, or anywhere near an airport would be OK. I said this mainly because we moved far away when my parents were younger and healthier, but as they got older, being very far away with aging parents makes it a little harder to visit - they can't travel to you. That may actually be something they fear- not seeing you as they get older, so you can reassure them that you will visit when you can. Many families have managed distance, but they don't know any who have.
Still- this should not stop you from achieving your goals and you can move where you need to go. I just meant it as a glimpse into the future. Atlanta would be good.
I guess A Beka will graduate you on time and you have done well. Maybe take the ACT again. Look at all you state options first- as you have, and any option that may offer you aid or be affordable.
Your parents seem to be parenting much like their generation did, and roles for women in their time were different so they may not understand. I know of a student who was in a similar position and it was very hard. She did graduate however- with work study, loans, although I don't know all the details. I hope there's a way.
It's a different time. Change is hard. Hang in there and hang on to your dreams.
