    Thanks for sharing part of your story and commenting on this thread. We are sorry that things have been difficult for you since returning home. Of course, it might be that way for a while until trust is restored, but that doesn't mean your lack of freedom will last forever.

    We are pretty concerned when you talk about killing yourself. That's pretty serious. If you ever feel suicidal, please reach out for the help you deserve. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is staffed by people trained to talk about suicide, so they are a great resource. You can reach them at www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org or call 1-800-273-8255. You can also reach out to us anytime to talk about suicide or anything else on your mind. We are confidential and open 24/7 at 1-800-RUNAWAY or by chat at www.1800runaway.org. We want you to be safe. Things can get better and you have many options besides suicide.

    All the best,
    NRS

    I know how you feel. I’m fourteen now but I used to run away all the time. While I was away I felt better, but everything always got worse when I was forced to go back home because I needed food or medicine. My family doesn’t trust me anymore, I have no freedom, and I’ve attempted suicide 4 times since the first time I ran away. It’s really hard to say this, but running away only made my problems worse. I hope you can find a better way to deal with your family issues, but if you really want to leave make sure you have a backup plan if you run out of supplies.

    Hello There,
    Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a difficult time and we want you to know that you are not alone in this.
    It must be really scary to have people smoking weed in your home that you do not know. One option to consider is to speak with your mother about how you are feeling, she may be unaware of your feelings. Another option would be to speak with an adult or a counselor about what is going on at home, sometimes talking to a professional can help you explore options. Another good resource is called NAMI (national alliance for mental illnesses. They can be reached at 1800-950-NAMI.
    We hope that this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore more options, please chat with us or call us. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support. Best of luck!

    I'm 13, I've dealt with my mother for years, ever since I've gotten older I've had to deal with name calling, she talks me down, and we always get in arguments, she claims its all ways my fault and that I'm disrespectful, every time I stand up for myself she tells me I'm a child and I don't have a right to speak, I cry almost everyday and get called annoying, I want to leave her so bad, I stay in my room a lot to stay away from her, but she even talks me down on that, she says I'm lazy and need to get out but I never have the energy, its gotten to the point where I don't even wanna go around the rest of the family, I also have to deal with my brother, its obvious she treats him better, he has done weed, he has wrecked his truck so many times, he is overall bad but my mother always wants to not talk about it and its like she's never mad at him, but any little thing I do I get my things took away or she threatens to take my door away, I truly love my brother though, my mother also lets random people into the house, they use my shower, they smoke weed in my brothers room and I hate being around that, she's always embarrassing me and lies a lot about me to her friends, my phone is currently taken away from me again, so I'm typing this on a computer, I truly hate her but I tell her I love her, I'm the one always apologizing when I know I it should be her, I even ask for food from town and she complains, or if I ask for her to fix me something she gets mad, I finally have reached out, I know I would never hurt my self but I do think about it a lot, I just wanna be happy. there is so much more I wanna say about her but I wanna see if you guys reply or if this is legit, thank u for listening.

    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. It must be really hard to live in a home with so much tension. Everyone should be able to feed loved and respected at home.

    You mentioned that you have thought about suicide and have tried to hurt yourself via suffocation. We care a lot about your safety, and we can help you find resources that can help you cope with these feelings. You do not have to face this alone, and there is so much help out there for you. If you are thinking about hurting yourself, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline could be a good resource for you. You can check them out at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/, or you can call 1-800-273-8255 for help and support any time.

    It sounds like there is a lack of understanding between you and others in your household. It could be a good idea to work with a local family counselor or have a conversation mediated by a school counselor/social worker, trusted friend, or family member to help clear the air. If you'd like, you can also call us directly and we can conduct a conference call with your caretaker so you have a safe environment where you can express yourself.

    If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat us by clicking on the “CHAT” button on top of our homepage. We’re open 24/7 and here to listen and support you in any way we can.

    Im 14 and I hate my family.

    I hate the household that I'm in and I hate everyone that I live with. I feel so miserable and like my entire life is being ruined. I feel like I have no say in what I want to do with my life. I've thought about committing suicide several times and I've tried suffocation several times as well but failed. I can't live here anymore, I've already tried running away. I can't live like this anymore I'm only 14 and Im supposed to have a whole life ahead of me, I NEED HELP PLEASE HELP ME!!!!! What are my options?

    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. It must be really hard to live in a home with so much tension. It can be really rough being a middle child and can often feel lonely, even though you are surrounded by siblings. Running away is a big decision and it can be very stressful to figure out what you want to do.

    You mentioned that you have been struggling with depression lately. It can be really hard to live with mental health issues and we want you to know that you aren’t alone in addressing them. If you’d like some additional support, an organization that may be helpful is the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). You can contact them by calling 1-800-950-NAMI or you can text them by sending NAMI to 741741. Another agency that could be of great help is the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), they can help you locate low or no-cost mental health care providers in your area. Their number is 1-800-662-4357 or you can go to their site at samhsa.gov.

    It seems like your parents don’t fully understand how the current dynamic at home is affecting you. It could be a good idea to work with a local family counselor or have a conversation mediated by a school counselor/social worker, trusted friend, or family member (like your aunt) to help clear the air. If you'd like, you can also call us directly and we can conduct a conference call with your parents so you have a safe environment where you can express yourself.

    If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY.

    Hello I'm 15
    I have a nice family. I love them all dearly but our relationship is becoming unhealthy for me. I am constantly put down by my siblings and I have mildly severe depression. No one knows except my cousin who also has it. We both want to leave our homes. I don't feel like it's any one person's fault. I just don't want to be put down all the time. I'm a middle child. When I was younger my brother was going thru a hard time and took it out on his younger siblings. I have to say we weren't helping his situation by telling him we hated him, but nonetheless he started being mean and my self confidence started to degrade. It continued on when my siblings to deal with their own feelings took it out on me. I'm also the middle child so I don't get payed much attention and to my older sibs I'm little and my younger I'm older so I don't really fit in anywhere. The only person I get along with is my dad and my mom is slightly controlling and judgmental. She's doing her best to overcome that, but I am expected to be perfect all the time and it's just not helping. I just want to be in a better place to deal with my emotions and get past this.

    I would like to move in with my Aunt, but I'm not sure she'd let me and I don't want to talk to my parents about my issues. They have a lot going on right now and I just don't want to put pressure on them. I also just feel guilt cause they've had to take me lately to doctors and we don't have money right now. For years my mom wouldn't believe that I had health issues and I felt ignored. I'm not sure what to do as I'm failing my grades because I can't focus because of this.

    I've thought multiple times about suicide but I don't think I'm in danger of it. I'm honestly too terrified to go through with it cause i've been in pain almost my entire life and I don't like it. My brother ran away from home for a few weeks and my parents were okay with it cause they knew what he was going thru, but I have a feeling that won't be the same with me Cause him running away didn't help him much and their relationship got rockier. My parents don't drink, smoke, or abuse. I'm just not sure I can take anymore of this.

    Hi there,
    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
    While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
    We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
    Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).
    If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
    Be safe,
    NRS

    Thanks for reaching out,
    It seems like you have been through a lot, and that does appear to qualify as abuse to be hitting you with the metal part and trying to cause damage, although we aren’t legal experts or part of CPS/DCFS. It may be worth checking out childhelp.org to see more info on child abuse and possibly reporting it. It seems like home is hard to feel comfortable in with all that going on. Home should be somewhere you feel safe and can grow.
    If you want help filing a report, or just want someone to talk to you can always reach out to our hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY or us our online chat.

    I'm 13 and I think this is abuse

    One day I was doing my work and when my mom was checking my grades she was like Wtf and she got a belt and started hitting me with the metal part and my dad is in jail and I barely get to see him and sometimes I think of cutting myself or just running away and I really just want to be at peace.
