  • I just

    I am 19 in college. My dad wants me to pay for my own insurance when I can afford it he kicked me out several time while I was a teenager and when I come home for the holidays he mays me leave as soon as I pull up in the driveway and I have no place to go so I sleep in my car. He always says everything is my fault and once called me a "little **********" I guess I just don't know what I did to make him hate me so much. I guess I just don't understand how someone could treat their child like this.

    Thank you for reaching out to us. Sometimes it is difficult to reach out to someone but you were brave enough to do so. Sounds like you have been strong to have to deal with this for a very long time. Seems like your father doesn’t care for you the way you would like or the way you think a parent should. We are sorry that you are experiencing this type of relationship with your father.
    It must be tough for you to try and get insurance for yourself when you do not have the means to afford it. You mentioned you are in college. It may help to inquiry about student health insurances. Some colleges provide insurance for students. It can be included in your tuition. Sometimes it is automatically included in your tuition so you may already be insured or you may have to request it. Policies vary in different colleges in how they provide students with insurance.
    We are sorry that you are not as accepted as you wish to be during the holidays by your family. We are sorry that your father is blaming you for everything. These have to be hard things to deal with. We want to make sure you are safe physically, emotional and mentally since what your father is doing can affect you in all three areas. We have a large database that can help you with finding support for your situation and options for you to take care of yourself in all three aspects. If you would like we can also talk with you about things you would like to do or what you would like help with.
    Again, thank you for being brave and reaching out to us. We empathize with you and wish you were not in this situation. We hope we have provided useful information. If you want to reach us we are accessible 24/7 at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or you can chat with us at We wish you well and best of luck.
