Take it from someone who has experience in running away the only thing you are running from is yourself. In the end your past...present ... and future will all collide. When that happens I hope you have all the things you mentioned (Car, House, A family of your own). Because when it all hits it will take everything you have and more to get past it. <br />

M family sent me to Psychiatric Facilities from the age of 6. I was in and out from age 6 till I was 18, to put in perspective that wasn't too long ago (1980-1992) I thought I knew what I was doing and when I turned 18, I could do better... I was wrong. College is tough, a career is even tougher, a family is a 24/7 job that never ends. I hope you do better than I did. Although your experiences and mine are worlds apart at least you still have ...home.

Yup, thats what Im planning on doing. i will never forget those two days of my life... ESPECIALLY since one was on EASTER and the other was before my first school play, but soon I will grow up, and do what I want. Then I can say screw you! To whoever I want and no one will send me to no f**cking behaivioral intitutions whatever. I will have a husband, house, car, great job, and beautiful children. I will move away from here. I hate my family. When Im sad and my parents make me so pissed off that I scream and cry, I have no one to go to. I scream and cry because my oarents dont love me and the hurt me. It breaks my heart sooo bad. </3 So screw my family. When Im 18, Im out. To a great college in a different state or even country, to start a whole new life without my F*cked up childhood.

Why were you admitted? And are you admitted today? I watched a show recently about a girl who was admitted at thirteen and spent the next eight years ruining her life as a result of that past incident. She also hated her father for putting her there and was verbally abusive to him. Finally she was told by a rehab therapist: " sorry for what happened to you. it was a horrible experience & I wish I can change It but I cannot". She then mentioned the fact she was no longer at the facility which got shut down and raided while she was attending. <br />

Listen, so often we become obsessed with the perceived and in some instances factual wrong doing that If we aren't careful we will stay in that place, age and repeat the cycle. You can break the cycle. You got into some trouble when you were 13. You felt ashamed. You used pills. Who you were yesterday is not who you are today and it is alright to let go of the past and move forward. The only person you ultimately affect is you. What happens be it good or bad is not who we are. Enjoy the rest of your life.

It takes alot of courage to say that.<br />
My parents did it too. For 3 years. I've always been ashamed. I'm 40 and my heart is still broke from what they did to my life.

I cant believe it. I am 13... and they sent me twice. I am still pissed off at them. My heart is broken as well. I guess I will never love them the same. *SOB* :'(
