Hey Hanli... Am a 20 year old guy experiencing the same thing.. It all started so innocent ... We had a fight with my mom.. She lie to me everytime about serious matters.. So I decided to Leave the house for a week.. I thought of a place where there's no human being but just me.. I left my phone and everything home.. Went to the bush.. I wanted to kill myself but someone saw me.. He brought me back home.. That's when I started doing drugs.. They didn't seem to care about me at home.. A month passed by still in drugs. But one day while i was on my way to buy some drug.. I met a Pastor. He told me how dangerous and bad my life is.. He invited me to his church.. I didn't wanna go there but my heart kept pushing me.. I saw myself there.. They prayed for me.. aS we speek am out of drugs.. Am a church goer I got help in the name of Jesus... buT what hurts the most is that Me and my family still ain't close

I wouldn't say run. But if you can distance yourself from all that negativity for a bit you'll feel a lot better. Stay with a friend or maybe another family member? For a week or however long it takes for your family to value you for what you are.
