Hi, my name's sara and I'm interested in leaving home to live with my girlfriend and her family.
I'm 16 years old, and I'll be turning 17 in a month. My mom's boyfriend is always over and he's always drunk and verbally abusing me, once I tried to enter the house to call my dad to come get me because he was trying to fight with me ( and he was drinking that night as usual ) and he grabbed me, pushed me to the ground, slammed me into a brick wall, and threw me against the car. My mother was standing there watching, and did nothing. My father's no better, he barely takes any notice of me, or takes care of me. Theres barely anything substancial to eat and when I complain he yells at me, insulting me for about an hour until I lock myself in my room. I'm tired of being verbally abused, until the point that I consider suicide once a week.
I'm curious as to the conditions under which I can leave my home to stay with my girlfriend's parents (whom offered me a room many times, and have told me they would love to have me live there as long as I need it )
I've heard if I runaway and go there, the cops can pick me up and bring me back home.
Any help would be appreciated!
