  • my mom controls my eating

    my mom has a set amount i can eat a day and watches every bite like a hawk i am home schooled so i can not just go to school and eat their she also keeps track of how many calories i burn compared to how many i eat if i want to eat alone and decide what i eat i have to sneak food preferably at night in my room but she checks on me sometimes and gets really mad if she finds me with food in there. she also checks to see how fast food is being consumed from the fridge. she went ballistic when she found out i had poured water into the milk container to make it look fuller. I really want to run away but i am only 15 and dont know how i could make a living.

    Hi, thank you for reaching out to us; we are glad that you did. It sounds like your mom watches and controls your food, and that the amount you get is not enough. And because you are hungry you sneak food and if you get caught, she goes ballistic. We are very sorry that this is happening to you. You don’t deserve to be so hungry and to be deprived of food and to be watched so hard over something as natural as eating.
    Because you are homeschooled, access to adults is limited to family, but maybe you can think of someone that you trust who might be able to help you talk to your mother. There are other options that we can help you discover and decide on, but we would have to discuss your situation with you.
    We would really like to discuss this further so that we can talk about everything that you are going through and help you figure out your options. You can contact us either by phone at 1-800-786-2929 (1-800-RUNAWAY) or via live chat through the website We are here for you 24/7 to listen and to help.
    We hope this helps and that we might hear from you soon.
    Sincerely, NRS
