  • I want to move out, I’m scared

    I actually have been thinking about this a lot, I moved from Peru a year ago (i dont want to go back) I live with my dad and his new wife, and 3 new brothers, I used to be only child a bunch of problems happened, that made me can’t take this anymore, I don’t feel comfortable. Around a month ago I was in a mental hospital because I tried to kill myself because of this problem, and now I’m asking for option to my school consular, I’m scared because I don’t know if I’m really to be an adult or something like that but I don’t have any other option. I lied to my physiologist that I was fine but I’m not. I don’t know what to do, please help me
