  • Where can I runaway to?

    I've had a rough life. My parents fought constantly, my dad abused my mom numerous times in front of me and has gotten in my face before scaring me he is gonna hit me. My parents divorced when I was in fifth grade because my mom cheated on my dad with another guy and got pregnant with his kid. I guess my depression started there, because starting middle school I started cutting. I saw it on a show once and wondered what it would feel like and if it would help me. It started as little but as more happened, in school and home, I continued it, deeper and more. My dad wasn't stable for the longest time so I spent my time with my ex step dad and mom when they were together along with my biological sister and half sister and brother. When he came back he was leaving with my step mom, she hates me because I look so much like my mom. Freshmen year I came out as lesbian, my mom and dad were fairly disgusted and still to this day try to convince me not to be, but I can't help it. I have a beautiful girlfriend whom I love so so much and adore but I just can't do this anymore. I have contemplated suicide so many times, written out the farewells, and held the pills in my hand many times but I haven't gone through with it yet. I just need somewhere to stay, a safe house or anything. Please..
