    From College

    I just did today.  If you've read my stories, you know how things are going with my mom.  Well, she just called and said I can't join this fraternity I'm wanting to join.  That just infuriated me.  She is so freakin' controlling.  So she was planning on...

    When I ran away i was told that if I came back things would be different. That was a total lie. The main reason I left is because I was gonna kill myself. My so called "family" didn't really care about me and didn't pay any attention to me unless I did something bad... When I...

    I got into a fight with my parents this morning,

    and needless say it was bad enough that when they told me to pack my bags I did. By that I mean I walked out the front door with some cash shoved down my shirt. I walked about 20miles total, from my city to the next, sticking to trails and residential sidewalks. I got lost and...

    I ran to get away from some terrible

    circumstances, and only got myself into another bad situation. You can only run for so long, until you get cornered. I've made my bed, now it's time to lay in it.

    Here is the beginning.

    .. my grandma and I started living with some friends of hers when I started college. Things were getting tough because we had to put my great-grandma in a nursing home and that took a lot of money out of our budget. So my grandma's friend offered her a room in her house for free...

    Running Away For Good.

    I ran away from home once, because my parents are drunks. I stayed at a friends house for a couple of days while their parents were away. I have found reasons to stay at other people's homes so I can get away because I hate it there. Now that my Brother has his own place, I am...

    I ran away because I needed to. I hope they never find me, because I am happy now. I get to see the one I love, and I no longer have to subject myself to my stepfather's brutal raping and physical abuse. My manager, after I told him the story, was able to find me a different job...
