  • Need advice

    My mother has been neglecting my medical needs and my own stepfather is a pedophile and wants to take advantage of me, he doesn't live with me but he does live close and comes by, my mother wont allow me to stop contact with him because it would make her stressed, I am not safe here at home and I have been thinking about running away, cps isn't very good and they usually ignore important cases and dont further investigate so I wont be going to them, i could call the police or fire station and tell them about my situation but that terrifies me, i dont know if i can handle all that change.. I've been thinking about killing myself to get out of here, or at least injure myself badly so I get taken to the hospital and my medical needs get dealt with, and yk maybe my mom would actually care, i have ptsd from my family, which is another reason why staying here is not good for me, I have been starved and am close to being malnourished, not sure what to do now.
