      Hi. I’m 13 years old, and female. I’ve lately been dealing with a lot of issues, including suicide thoughts, stomach issues, and school work.
      I recently went to the doctor for a physical, and that’s when my suicide thoughts were discovered by someone. My doctor told my parents, and now I see therapists, and take medication. I also take medication for my stomach, since I have severe problems with it. I’m dieting right now, to see if certain foods bother it.
      i met this boy online, and I want to move in with him. We practice the same religion, are the same age, and we both sort of like each other. I talked to some of our mutual friends, and they were like “yeah I’ll see if it’s alright to move in with him.” They’re figuring out if I can. The thing is, should I? I want to run away because sometimes I feel mentally abused. My parents are the reason I’m suicidal. But if I run to this boys house, and my parents call the cops, I’m gonna be in so much trouble. I really don’t want that to happen. Also, what about my doctors? My medications? My diets? I’m really not sure, so please help me out.

        Thanks for reaching out; we are glad that you did. It sounds like you are going through a lot right now. We are glad that you are taking medication to help with suicidal thoughts, and it’s important to let the medication take time to work and help you. And having a plan for your stomach issues and figuring out a diet that works for you is very important.
        Running away at 13 guarantees that police will be involved and would definitely bring you back home. And living with this boy means living with his parents, which it’s unlikely that they would take on your medical bills which would run into thousands of dollars.
        Please be very careful about people online – especially those that want you to leave home-they usually aren’t thinking of your benefit, but theirs.
        It’s understandable that you want to run from mental abuse that is caused by your parents, and it will take time working with therapists to help you feel stronger with the coping skills you can learn from them.
        We hope this was helpful, and to talk further about this, please reach out using our phone hotline, 1-800-runaway (786-2929) or via live chat through this website. The best way for us to listen and help is if we can have a conversation, so we hope to hear from you soon.
