  • emotional abuse... wanting to leave

    at home, everything is wrong. my mom treats me like I'm a slave. its not my brother or sister... its just me.
    sometimes i think its because I'm the oldest. but i don't think its fair I'm isolated from all my friends. unlike most kids, i want to go to school everyday just to escape home.
    i can't go out with friends, i have no phone or iPod, i have to stay inside at all times... i went through a big stage of depression a few years ago & i never knew why. i think I'm starting to figure it out. i was self destructing, getting into drugs, and down spiraling. after getting some help, i was okay for a little while but eventually it caught on & my mom quit my therapy so i no longer have anyone to talk to. she puts me down constantly, and laughs at me. especially when i ask to go see friends she will laugh in my face and tell me no.
    i haven't had a sleepover since i was 14 either.
    maybe this is all reasonable, but to me... she just brings me down & hurts my self esteem. i can no longer keep a relationship because of her as well.
    i don't want to be home anymore. I'm willing to do anything to get out of here. I'm 15. there isn't much i can do at that age, but i am turning 16 in 2 months.
    if anything were to happen, i have 4 different places i can stay until I'm 18. i could choose either one. i have a job, and getting another one soon. training for my second job starts in a few weeks.
    my credits for school are on track, and i have no record.

    someone help me, give me advice.
    id do anything to get out of here.

    Often, youth may reach out to NRS in several different ways to discuss their situation. If a response from NRS is not visible to a bulletin posting it may be that we have already provided services to that individual through another platform we provide such as email, our crisis hotline, or our live chat service.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
