  • I don’t want to live with my family anymore

    Hi. I’m struggling a lot at home with my family. They only tear me down, and it doesn’t help that I struggle with depression in the first place. My mom likes to use my past trauma to get me to stop talking or arguing or to make me go to my room. I literally can’t handle anymore. The only alternate placement I have near me is Boys Town, but that wouldn’t be a good idea because I’m very antisocial and I can’t handle an in person school because of what happened in the past.
    I don’t know what to do.

    Thank you for contacting us here at NRS. We understand it takes a lot of courage to reach out and we appreciate you sharing about your situation. It sounds like your mom has been making you feel unheard and not cared for at home. It is not okay for your mom to bring up past trauma in this way or to dismiss your feelings.

Your safety and well-being are very important and we want you to know that you are not alone this.
