  • Want to run away, but have nowhere to go

    So here's my story:
    Im in the 8th grade, and I am a male. Life has not been looking well
    for me recently, for 2 things. At school, I feel left out, with no friends.
    Sometimes people make fun of me, which makes me feel worse. Most
    of the time, I have no motive to go to school because I make bad grades
    and have no friends. At home it's not so bad, but the problem is that my
    mom treats me like im stupid because 3 years ago i was diagnosed with
    aspergers. Also, my dad is always gone on trips for buissness. I hate my
    town, I feel like I dont fit in. I want to run away, but have nowhere to go.
