  • Parents are to much

    I need to get out of the house I live in. I have depression and it doesn't help with the family I have. I'm constantly stressed, I've had a rough life, and i unfortunately do hurt myself. And every little fight I get into with my family, whether it be my siblings or a parent, they make my blood pressure go out the roof and makes me want to do stupid things. I usually do drugs, or drink , or cut to feel better. But getting back to the subject I need to leave..or I'm going to go crazy by the time I turn 18...I don't want to be anything like my parents. They are just ruining me. I can't stand it..I've honestly thought about taking my own life a couple times. I take medication but It doesn't help, it's the 4th different pill. I just can't do it anymore, I'm more afraid they are going to push me to the point where I really can't take it anymore..then I do something stupid.

    RE: Parents are too much

    Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Safeline where we're here to listen and here to help. Moreover, thank you so much for showing such courage in contacting us. It sounds like you have a pretty difficult situation, and we're sorry that you have to go through this difficult time. It takes a lot to admit that you need help and that previous ways that you have sought to deal with the problem of being at home are not as effective for you as before. It is very proactive of you to look for new ways to get the support, help, and resources you need. Thank you for being so open to asking and willingly receiving what you need.

    You mentioned that at times, you've felt suicidal due to all of your home pressures and your depression. There is a suicide hotline that can help talk you through some of your troubles when you feel like taking your life. The number is 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255). You are amazing, wonderful, and very much needed in this world...even when others fail to recognize all that you have to offer. See this video to help give you confirmation as to how much you do matter to this world:

    You mentioned that you occasionally engage in self-harm. This following link may be useful for you:

    And what people believe about suicide determines what people do about suicide prevention. If we as a community believe nothing can be done, nothing will be done. This is the first lie we tear down in honor of Suicide Prevention Month. Join us as we fight the myths and misinformation that have marked the conversation […]

    The National Runaway Safeline has a series of blog posts that focus on personal development and coping skills. You may find some of them relevant to you and your experience. Here is the link:

    In addition to our blog, we would love to hear from you on our interactive crisis line where we are open 24/7 or our interactive chat that is open from 4:30pm-11:30pm Central Standard Time.
