  • Hey there. I am a 13 year old from India and my story begins when I was only in senior kinder garden, I had bitten (since my biting stage started late) my older brother and got beaten and physically abused so bad for it to the point I started peeing, and they still kept beating me until my brother told them I was saying the truth and to stop it. Later on in life we moved to a new place where my parents avoided to talk with me, they became emotionally abusive and distant and to this day they still are, it feels like I get emotionally raped by their perfectionism obsessive and hurtful words every single day. I literally fight and cry with my family every day, and I just want to quit at this point, I feel like I'm the wrong one here. I've been sexually assaulted by my friend, bullied to the point I started questioning myself, have depression, anxiety and I often feel dumb shamed, personality shamed, looks shamed and slut shamed idk why. My parents, most of the time refuse to check me to the doctor when I get a swollen eye infection or anything. Their distancing has grown so much I'm afraid they've begun to neglect me at this point, one day the end of my belt was hanging lose so my mother suggested to fix it, after much persuasion, using elastic bands in the tower reception, as she pulled up my top (I was wearing a long tee and jeans) the security guard started checking me out and when I addressed it to them they chose to ignore it and blame me instead of protecting me and trusting me, I was 11/12 at the time. My brother has certain dominance issues and I feel like he's the only parental figure in my life, even though he can tend to be aggressive at times he says its for my well being and even though he may call me weak and sensitive he's the only one who pays any attention towards me. My father is barely ever there in the house due to his job and he could almost be considered an outsider in my life if he didn't stay in the house, every time I try to inform him he chooses to believe my mother who explains matters from her perspective and victimizes herself. I have no friends who want to specialize me and often times I feel like I was abducted as a child due to certain memories. Every day this thought haunts me that if it wasn't for their procrastination and neglect, I would've been physically abused terribly. My mom always says that it was her fault she didn't beat me up when I was small. She even once mentioned me as the girl from the streets and someone who never deserved to have a mother etc. They make me feel guilty about my mental health issues and the outcome of it instead of being there for me. I also suffer from terrible mood swings and I'm unable to find the roots of it, I make up stories in my mind to make myself believe that this isn't my life and that it's been stolen from me and for some odd reason I gain pleasure from it. I wanna go to Orlando where my mom, Casey Anthony is living, I know this sounds crazy but you have got to trust me. Idk why she left me but I have memories, each photo of my childhood looks different, they claim most photos have been "deleted", we look really similar, we share the same birthday and even though my parents haven't admitted it and they have given slight remarks about it which in itself is very suspicious. The death WAS a cover up and i know it. My father, a man who I didn't even know well said to me that MY marriage was HIS responsibility. I'm honestly done with all the fake people and just wanna start anew, I don't need a hotline number, they can't change the past or save me. Please help me

      Hello,

      Thank you for reaching out to us during this difficult time. It sounds like you have really been through a lot and are currently struggling now. We understand how important is it to feel like people believe and understand the trauma you have gone through. Nobody deserves to be sexually abused, bullied or made to feel unsafe in their own home. Although you said you did not want any other numbers, it might not be a bad idea to reach out to professionals who can help you come up with some healthy coping mechanisms.

      RAINN (Rape Abuse Incest National Network) 1-800-656-4673 can help you process some of the things that have happened to you over the years. They may also be able to provide more long-term counseling options. https://www.stopbullying.gov/ Is another good resource to address some of the bullying you’ve experienced. It sounds like your parents are not supportive of you in more than one way. If you would like to report the abuse or neglect, you have every right to do so. Child Help at 1-800-422-4435 can take your information and open an investigation. You also said you believe Casey Anthony is your real mom. You can leave an anonymous tip at https://www.crimestoppersusa.org/contact/submit-a-tip/ where someone can look into this matter further.

      We are very glad you have reached out to us today and hope you’ll give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). Please stay safe and best of luck.

      Hello,

      It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now and like you’re fearing that the situation may end in suicide if things don’t change. Your safety and well-being is important. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255 (www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org) is always available if you need someone to talk to about how you have been feeling. Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of.

      Living in an environment with constant yelling and fighting is incredibly overwhelming and traumatic. The resulting stress and mental health struggles can make it very difficult to take steps toward being independent. You deserve to be treated with respect and to feel supported. This may be an isolating and lonely time for you, but you are not alone in this. Your mental health and well-being is important and we want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. You mentioned coming up with a plan to move out and leave your parents' household. We are here 24/7 to listen and support you in your next steps. We can talk through your options and provide any necessary referrals (counseling, shelter, etc). Please do not hesitate to reach out any time to our hotline by phone 1-800-786-2929 or through our live chat services 1800runaway.org.

      Stay strong and good luck,
      NRS

      Hello There,
      Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a really difficult time right now, and we want you to know you are not alone.
      We cannot help you run away, as that is a big decision and you know your situation best so you would know if running away is best for you. We can help you with safety planning and also help you explore your options. As far as finding a job you would most likely need documents such as an ID, BC and social security card.
      It seems like you are feeling pretty down which can be frustrating. One option to consider would be to talk with a counselor about what you are going through. Sometimes talking to someone can make a big difference.
      We hope that this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore more options please give us a call. We are here to listen and here to provide you support. Best of luck!

  • I want to run away
    I’m 20. My mom says i should die for every small mishap happening in my house..She is high bp patient & her temper is always high. I have a small brother(11) whom she adores. Even if i joke anything about him, she gets over possessive and argue with me. Bt when it’s about me, she literally says she wants to choke my neck & kill me. She says she wants me dead all the time. I can’t stay in this house. My friends also think she is not my own mother.

      Hi there, and thanks for reaching out to us here at NRS. We know that it can take a lot of courage to reach out for support, and we're glad you took that step.

      It sounds like things with your mom are pretty tough, and we're sorry to hear that. Unfortunately because NRS is US based, we're unfamiliar with the laws and resources in your country, so we don't have much information that we can provide you with at this time. For example, in most states in the US, the age of majority is 18. That means that once you turn 18, you're legally considered an adult, and you can leave home and make decisions for yourself. You can also get a job a bit easier, go to college, find housing, etc. But because we are unfamiliar with how things work in your country, we can't chat some of our traditional options through with you.

      That said, you might be able to connect with an organization in your area by visiting www.childhelplineinternational.org. You can click on "Find a Child Helpline" right at the top of the page, and then search for your country from there. Keep in mind that it's possible they won't have appropriate resources for you because you're a little bit older, but it certainly won't hurt to reach out to them to see if they work with your age and/or if they can connect with you the right folks who do.

      We hope that you're able to find the help that you're looking for.

      NRS

  • Hi. Idk. I'm stuck between this two decision for almost 2 years: Die or at least run away & try to live. It's been 3 years actually, had a year where death became my only daily yearn. This feeling of guilt, shame, fatigue and confusion is just constant and I'm afraid I'll be stuck here, gladly not, where might in time I would decide between the two, of which the former. Idk, I need fcking help and I'm not receiving any. :
