    Re: I'm Tired of the crap


    Thank you for writing to us at National Runaway Switchboard. We appreciate you opening up to us about your situation at home. It sounds like a tough place to be right now. You do not deserve to be treated this way. How long have you been depress? We have resources we can give to you from our database listing counselors near you if you wish to speak to someone in person.

    Your boyfriend sounds like someone you care deeply for and a person you can trust right now. We are sure you can use someone impartial to vent to about this situation. We wish to hear from you to address your situation directly over the phone. We are not in the position to tell what to do but we are here for support and resources.

    We imagine it must be frustrating that nothing gets done when you already called the police and CPS. We can be reached 24 hours a day at 1800RUNAWAY if you need to speak on options available to you. Although we are confidential and anonymous, we are also mandated reporters and must report your situation if we get names, numbers and address of your parents. We do not force you to act but we are only here to empower you and offer what we do to help you figure out your life further.

    The one thing to understand is that running away is not illegal but it is against the law for someone to hide you or take you in without permission by your parents. It can vary from state to state. It can lead to a misadmeanor charge if your parents took action against these individuals. We wish to help. We hope to hear from you soon. Good luck.
