  • I want to get away from home

    I feel really terrible. My mom is driving me crazy. She totally hates me, but she adores my little brother. She locks me up in the house all day all night. The only time I can leave the house is to school and back. She just doesn't trust me anymore. She thinks that I'm out of hand or something and all she does is treat me like I'm her slave. She buys my little brother anything and everything he wants, but when it comes to me she buys me nothing. If I ask to spend time with my aunt she says no and forces me to clean even if nothings dirty she'll find something for me to clean. I can't stand her anymore. She's never there to support me. I go through bullying at school and when I try talking to her about it she just starts yelling at me for being the way I am. If I get say a 98 on a test she yells and ask why I didnt get 100. My little brother on the other hand gets showered with hugs kisses and presents. I try to talk to her about how I feel. but she just starts yelling and abusing me. I feel I am very neglected. I need to runaway. Anything would be better than living with her. I want to go move with my dad in Maryland but I live in Ohio. I love my dad so much. I'll do anything to find a way to go live a better life with him. The only thing is that he has a new family there and I'm worried I won't fit in. I just need to get a break from my mom. And if I can't, I'll just commit suicide. Please Help Me

    We are glad you reached out to us, we are here to support you during this time. It sounds like you’ve been (and are going) through a lot between your mom hating you, not trusting or supporting you, being verbally abusive and neglected. Having your mom favor your brother and take her boyfriend’s side sound incredibly difficult. We are sorry to hear that you are being bullied at school (and dealing with it on your own). You absolutely do not deserve this kind of treatment. It must take a lot of strength to cope with everything at home as well as the bullying.
