    Re: Help, im scared and confused

    Thank you so much for reaching out. It sounds like you are in a really stressful situation and is understandable to feel scared and confused. We are sorry to hear that your dad says those things to you. You do not deserve hurtful words or emotional abuse.
    It sounds like you have a lot on your shoulders and are doing a ton to help out around the house. Keeping up with cooking, watching kids and balancing school would be hard for anyone. Are there any other family members or possibly a counselor at school that you may be able to talk with about this?
    If you feel like you are going to hurt yourself, please reach out to us or call 911. In addition, and are resources for information and self-harm support if you are concerned about cutting. We are here 24 hours a day can offer suggestions for resources that may be able to help.
    It took a lot of courage to contact us; we are glad you did. Please don’t hesitate to call us if you would like to talk through some options. We look forward to talking with you soon.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
