  • I want to runaway. I'm 13 and need help.

    This is my first time here, and I'm really scared to do this, but....
    I feel like my entire family hates me, and I can't do anything to stop it. My dad and mom have fist-fought and argued LOUDLY infront of me CONSTANTLY. I have no one to talk to, and even when I do, they tell me to deal with it. I put on that fake smile everyday and when I feel it I usually just go to the bathroom and cry in the dark. I've been called everything in the book by everyone, my mom and dad threaten me. I try my hardest to stand up for myself but I just get scared, run to the bathroom and cry. I try listening to music that i can relate to, but it makes me depressed. I've considered running away, and I have even planned just in case, but I have no money and no idea what to do. OH, did i mention that my family (not parents but everyone else) are druggies? I'm a Christian and have even prayed for assistance, but nothing. I feel empty and dark. Can you help me? I used to be so happy and cheerful when my sis still lived with me (even then it was still terrible) and I want to be happy again.
