Well, your question isn't about how many things went wrong with your new 'steps', but yeah, your mom should've acknowledged that a while ago. During one of those 40 minutes, tell her how you feel. Tell her that you honestly feel unwelcomed in your home and you feel neglected by not just the stepsiblings but by your stepdad as well. When she asks why, you tell her all those examples you just explained and mention how you feel about that and how it bothers you, tell her how unfair it is that you don't even have a room anymore because it's now a bathroom. It's actually like they pushed you out of the house by deciding to renovate YOUR room into a bathroom. If your mom thinks your overreacting, or she just doesn't get the picture, I'd just advise you to stay wherever you're staying, take your cat with you, and try to manage on your own. This is the time where your mom is supposed to listen to how you feel. Don't believe that your mom is taking your friends to a concert for your birthday, just don't, because if you get your hopes up, and it was actually false, then that's gonna hurt. Don't worry about hurting her feelings, yes I get that she's your mom, but you have to point it out to her that you feel uncomfortable and you do not want to attend any family gatherings unless there are some changes.... changes that your mom needs to bring to everyone's attention. Don't be afraid to tell her how you feel or else you'll always be faced with this situation and it'll be a never ending circle. Good luck
