  • I dont know what to do.

    My parents suck and blame stuff on me i didnt do and call me things like a b**** and stuff like that, and the fact that I'm trans and she said being trans is sexist, doesnt help. I tried to run away at 10 but got caught before i left. She didnt do anything except threaten suicide watch??? I tried to kill myself and she just yelled, "Let her go to school, it doesnt matter where she is she'll kill herself anyways." I'm sick of it. but I'm scared because they say they love me and they give me stuff and we go to disney and i think I'm just overreacting. Am I? I don't understand how to feel. I have 2 siblings. And places to go if I did. But it's illegal to run away where I am and I cant tell anyone whats happening... I'm too scared to.. I don't know I sound dumb. Sorry...
