  • My parents are sending me to this treatment thin and it's terrible... I want to run away so much but
    not from my family... Ik it sounds weird but I love them and don't want to leave them, I just cannot and WILL NOT go to this place. I wish there was a way to not let them send me there. Like it's against my will and I feel like if they don't change their minds and fast, I have to go... But I don't want to. I don't know what to do!

          • I am 18 years old almost 19, I am extremely emotionally unstable, me and my dad constantly get into arguments about how I stay out too late (meaning like 1-2 am) which keeps him awake and he has early work in the mornings, I tell him that everyone my age has no curfew and that he treats me like I'm 12 years old who has a curfew of 10 when all my friends are out til 1-4 am. And I get that there's no reason to be out that late but all my friends have jobs and arent off til around 8 or 9 and i have school from 8-3 every day so I hardly get to spend time with them. My mom has health problems and is somewhat bed ridden so I have to do things around the house for her plus drive her to her appointments, which dont get me wrong, I dont mean to sound selfish but its hard to take care of someone else when I need to care for myself because I pretty much hate myself, I am very insecure about everything, I have anxiety and depression (we are an LDS family) so sometimes I'll accidentally let the f word slip or something like that which makes him angrier and i dont know how to control myself from screwing up all the time and I hate staying here because I feel like it makes me and my dads relationship toxic and i love my dad but i dont want it to get worse and i just need some space from this house but have no where to go bc if i leave i get my car taken away, and i have no job so i have no money so i have no idea what to do.

              Hi, thank you for reaching out to us; we are glad that you did. Your situation sounds hard and complicated. It sounds like you get into arguments with your dad and that your mom has health issues. It sounds like you have mental health issues and the arguments make that worse. It sounds like you want to leave, but don’t have the means and you’d like to keep having access to your parent’s car.
              It may be possible that there is a transitional living program in your area, which would give you a safe place to stay while you get a job and prepare for independence. They may even have therapy services to help you with your emotional health.
              Another possibility is you’d rather stay at home is to compromise with your dad about which nights you stay out late that wouldn’t interfere with his sleep and work. It sounds like he is the main financial support for your family, so a negotiation might make that situation better.
              If you’d like to talk over these options or have us search for a shelter for you, please reach out to us by phone at 1-800-RUNAWAY, or reach us by live chat through www.1800runaway.org
              We hope this helps.
              Sincerely, NRS
