  • Runaway..or mental breakdown

    I'm the oldest and only girl in my family, I'm 15. I'm thinking of running away because I have a lot of issues getting away with my mother and she leaves me with my brothers of 12, 5 , and 3 constantly! The 12 year old being abusing physically my mom being mentally. I'm about to have a mental breakdown! The only reason I have cut or anything of the sort is because my did competed suicide when I was 5 and my boyfriend is there for me and such a good person to talk to and he helps so much!
    He is 17.
