  • I can't take it anylonger.

    Hello, my name is [Edited to protect identity]
    I'm 15.

    There's this program called Camp Consequence.
    Where this asshat Marine owns it, my parents threaten me everyday, "Sending" me there.

    You get jumpsuit's and saltines. NO showers. 40 Days.
    I can't take it anymore, I already have high school to deal with.
    I worked so hard this summer and they are throwing it down the drain.
    The program was originally designed for people who do drugs and hurt others or steal cars. Bad people.
    Its a trial run through keeping the kids out of jail.
    I only disobey when they think they know whats best for me or when its generally unfair.
    I'm a smart 15 Year old, I can decide what is best for me. I just want to become a doctor.
    My parents spoil everyone else except me. I don't even have a phone. Just a pet tortoise and a computer.
    Yet my Five year old sibling has a frickin IPhone.

    I really hate my life on this family and have thought about committing suicide. Just so I can end the pain, for once and for all.
    My dad is extremely religious and when I don't go to church he threatens me with boot camp. Whether or not I've gone or not.
    Our babysitter thinks she knows everything and likes to gossip about my family.
    The 'camp' lies about what they require. Shower in a can, tooth brush, pillow, ect.
    Personally I don't deserve this.

    PLEASE, GOD BLESS, SAVE ME.

    Thank you for reaching out to us and telling your story. It sounds like you are going through a lot right now and we’re glad you contacted us. We are sorry to hear that you are having such a difficult time right now and hopefully we can try to provide you with some resources or support to help you out.

    It sounds like your parents are threatening to send you to the camp but you don’t want to go because you feel that it’s not for you. You mention that you only disobey when your parents think they know what’s best for you; can you tell us more about that? We are sorry to hear that your relationship with your parents is so rough and that they don’t treat you the same as your siblings.

    You mentioned that you had contemplated suicide before as a way to make the pain go away. Did you have a plan? If you ever feel that way again, there is a suicide hotline that you can call to talk with; their phone number is 1-800-273-TALK (8255) and they are available 24 hours a day.

    Here at the National Runaway Safeline, we are a completely confidential and anonymous hotline for youth in crisis or their families. You can call us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) and we can help discuss options or resources with you but we aren’t able to tell you what to do or not do. We also have online chat options that are available from 4:30 PM-11:30 PM (CST) if you would rather talk with us that way instead.

    We look forward to hearing from you and wish you the best of luck!

      So, For example.

      They're sending me to boot camp because they think it will make me better.
      They think that taking away my computer because I get 'bad ideas' from it.
