    Re: need help

    Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Switchboard. It sounds like you’re going through an extremely difficult situation right now. I’m so sorry that you have to deal with so many tough issues at once. First of all, I know that you mentioned being abused by your step-father. How long has this been going on? Have you ever told anybody that he is abusing you? A friend, teacher, counselor? Have you ever thought about reporting the abuse? You have no right to be treated like that, and you have every right to report this abuse and be in a safe situation. You also mentioned that you had taken a pregnancy test and it came back positive. I’m not sure how far your step-father has taken the sexual abuse you were talking about, but are you concerned that the baby may be his? Does anybody know that you may be pregnant?
    It’s definitely understandable that you are feeling lost and probably alone because you are dealing with some extremely intense situations, but nothing that has happened is your fault. There are people around you that have no business treating you the way that they are. I know you said you had been feeling suicidal as well. How long have you been feeling this way? Have you ever felt suicidal before, or ever tried to commit suicide? Here at NRS we are here for you 24 hours a day. We are a completely confidential line, so you can talk about what ever is going on in your life and it will just be between you and the liner that answers the phone. I also wanted to mention that if you ever decide that you want to report this abuse, and you have every right to do that, we can help you with this process. We would help you contact CPS and advocate in your behalf and help you talk with a case worker there. Also you mentioned wanting to runaway and that’s something that we would be able to discuss with you as well, come up with some options, and help you if there are any resources or referrals that would be helpful. Lastly I just wanted to give you a couple other hotline numbers that might be helpful.
