  • I'm scared.

    Hi I'm 19 and I'm scared to trust the process because I'm not suicidal or with to harm myself but I've been in a toxic relationship with my family and I really need a break. I'm bipolar and clinically depressed with anxiety and being here just makes me feel no one understands me. I do take therapy and have my own meds I just need a place to brake off the toxic nature I live in because it's becoming too much to handle and I don't have enough money to afford a place. My main question is if I can still see friends and other family when I want or am I just confined in the walls.

    Thank you for contacting National Runaway Safeline. It was brave of you to share what is going on at home.
