  • I'm 15, almost 16 and need to leave home in sc

    I live in a homeschooled family of 12 all blood -related but have a horrible life. My dad is a family doctor and my mom doesn't work. The top 4 kids have already left for college. I'm 5th. At home all computers and devices are banned or extreamly limited, I'm not supposed to have this tablet which a bought myself. I'm homeschooled and get isolated a bunch of the time, I can't make any friends cause we're hardly ever let out of the house. Both my parents are very christian and belive in forcing us to read the bible sometimes 3 hours a day. They also belive outer influences of the world are bad and we should not be arround stuff like that. Video games are always banned, movies only pg or lower and only 1 or 2 a week max, as a family. Music has to be glorifing to God so only instrumental or christian types. We hardly ever leave the house or have contact with new people. I've stayed at home for weeks straight without leaving except for church. I'm getting seriously depressed but my parents don't think I really am and my dad's a doctor so he doesn't care. I don't have any options where to go cause I don't know anyone, I am scared, can you help?
