  • I Want Out

    I want to be as far away from my parents as humanly possible. My father doesn't understand how difficult it is just to get out of bed every morning. I've been suicidal for four years and it hasn't let up in the slightest. I moved here because I thought my life would be better but it isn't. There's nowhere I can go and there's nothing I can do. I want to be gone, and I'm afraid if I don't get out soon, I'll wind up offing myself.
    I'm 17 and it's illegal in my state to run away but...

    Is there anything I can do? There's no abuse, no neglect, but I want to be freed of this burden.
