  • 17, and living home. Suicidal, and need to leave.

    Hiya,

    as title says. I'm dealing with more than a lot. And, I'd really like to move. I don't have anywhere else to go, but I'd rather be gone from this environment I'm in. I've had attempts in the past, and still kinda have plans. After Christmas, I plan on taking my life if nothing gets better. And, so.. Yeps!

    ​​​​​​
    ​​​​​​Honestly, I would want to be homeless than live in this house. Everyone yells, drinks, and blames me for a lot. Nobody cares about me here, or anywhere. I don't have any friends, or anywhere to go. Anxiety is just a pain, and depression is just too much. Everyone hurts me. I'm jealous of others for having friends, and me a second choice. I'm not good enough. All I want to know is if I can leave this place, and just find somewhere to go, have meals and.. Everything, a way to make profit.. Anything. Thanks.

      As much as I appreciate the response, I would be happy to keep it private. I would rather not have cops coming to my home. That'd only make my life worse than it already is.

      But really, thanks. All I would like to know is if I'm able to just.. Go, and not come back at my age.

        Hi there,
        Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS).

        We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
        While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions. We would be glad to conference a call to the local police and ask any questions you might have while you listen in.

        We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
