    I'm 15 years old and I'm feeling very suicidal living at home. I've tried to address the issue with my parents but all they say is that it's not going to effect them. I'm worried about living in an unhealthy environment because I'm constantly being ridiculed, yelled at, and hit. Not to the point where it's child abuse but it doesn't feel too good either. They tell me that I will never be anything. They tell me I'm stupid. My dad has even went as far to say, "F*** you" to me. I want to get away for a while, but I have no place to go. I fear that staying here will result in worse actions than leaving and being on my own.
