  • Im so alone want to runaway

    Im 14 and ive been through alot home issues especially (emotional abuse,neglect,being locked in rooms etc.) Im scared today a had a horrible day at school ans had a panic attack and people kept asking me what was happening at home but i was to scared because the last time i sais something i was forced to come live with my dad. My friends dont understand and think its a mistake that i want to tell someone. The bad stuff doesn't happen anymore well not yet anyway. Im scared because if he finds out what happened at school the screaming and yelling might start. I felt so bad i wanted to cry but i couldn't. I know i shouldn't be scared because he hasn't hurt me physically except once but i am. I dont want attention i really dont i just want someone that cares. I love my mom and if i ran away it would kill her. I can live on my own and i know that cant track me because i disabled it and will destory mt phone. Please help i dont know what to do. Im also in a lot of physical pain but i think i could manage it. Please help me..

                    Hi again,

                    Thank you for contacting us again at the National Runaway Safeline. We’re here to listen to your situation and help you in any way that we can.

                    It seems like you’re having a tough time at home right now, and we’re sorry that you feel this way. We’re here for you, and we recognize that this is giving you a lot to think about.

                    While we’re not legal experts, we can let you know general information regarding what could happen if you ran away. If you are a minor and run away, generally speaking, the police would be allowed to bring you back home. However, if it unsafe for you to return home, then the police would work with Child Protective Services to determine what actions would need to be taken. Generally speaking, a runaway that is returned home will not get into legal trouble unless they did something illegal while they were away (e.g. steal).

                    It’s important to note that every situation is different. If you decided to runaway, one option is to contact your local police or the police where you were planning to go to see what they would do if they were to find a runaway of someone your age. This is something that we at the National Runaway Safeline could do for you if this isn’t something you are comfortable doing yourself.

                    Before deciding to run away, there are some questions that you may want to think about: Do you have a place in mind where you would feel safe going? What are your options for finding shelter and food? Would you have to skip school?

                    Please feel free to reply and reach back out to us if you’d like to discuss your situation more. We are also available via live chat at 1800runaway.org or our 24/7 hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY(786-2929).

                    Thanks again for reaching out to us, and we hope to hear from you soon.

                    Best,
