  • Both 15 and we want to run away

    Me and my boyfriend are both only 15. We've been through a lot and right now family is kind of pulling us apart. Our families are both military families. He has to move sometime this summer and I have to move sometime this summer. He's currently living with his dad. He'd have to move in with his mom again and her boyfriend who well abused him and I. I would have to be in an entirely different place. I'm already depressed. I'm taking pills... And now I'd have to go somewhere else.. With no one who could ever understand me... I'd just be alone again. We both agreed that honestly we both only want to stay because of eachother. And yeah we aren't prepared for anything but we both just wanna give it a try. I'm not being pressured. One night I was talking to him and I said "sometimes I want to run away" and well he told me sometimes he did too... So we got to talking and we both want to leave.. So this summer, we just might. We both don't really feel at home here anyway... I wouldn't have pills anymore or anything like that but I'll be fine. I just want to keep running no matter what... And right now I just can't wait to leave....

    RE: Both 15 and we want to run away


    Thank you for reaching out to us for help. It sounds like you are going through a very difficult time, and it was smart of you to reach out. We are sorry to hear that you and your boyfriend have been abused. Nobody deserves to be abused, and if you ever want to file an abuse report we could help you with that. It sounds like you have been suffering from depresion, and that you take medication to treat this condition. That must be very difficult for you. It sounds like your main concern right now is being separated from your boyfriend. We understand how upsetting that can be. You mentioned that the two of you plan to run away together, but that you have no plan, you aren't prepared, and that you will not have access to mental health care or your perscription. It is understandable why you want to leave, but you might want to plan ahead and think about your options. Do you have any idea where you will stay or how you will survive? Our primary concern at NRS is your safety. You should know that going off of anti-depressant medications without the supervision of a doctor can be extremely dangerous, and that you could experience serious withdrawal symptoms which could even make your depression symptoms much worse. If you have any questions for us, or you want to talk to someone about making a plan to keep you safe, please do not hesitate to give us a call 24/7 at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). You can also talk to us online at through our live chat between the hours of 4:30pm and 11:30pm CST. We are here to listen and support you however we can.
