    HI,

    I’m 18, almost 19.

    My parents found out that I slept with someone I was seeing. I’m Muslim so this was a big thing. They got very angry and upset with me and now they don’t let me go out. I’m not even allowed to go out to see my female friends in the park which is literally opposite my house. I’m only allowed to see them if they come to my home which my friends feel very uncomfortable doing as my parents are very overbearing and don’t let us sit alone.

    I’m so depressed at home. I’m constantly surrounded by a level of hostility and toxicness and I’ve even explained to my parents that I feel depressed but they don’t believe me.

    I want to leave but I’m way too scared to do it as I know they won’t ever let me back into the family. I do love them and I have young siblings too and I know I’ll miss them so much.

    Does anyone have any advice on what I can do to help this situation?

    It would be nice to know if you live in the US or in a country that has women shelters. That’s where you need to go. A am a Christian but even with my beliefs, I am by far a perfect one. My personal opinion is your parents are way out of line and my concern is, that being Muslim, are your parents so strong in their belief, that they could cause serious harm to you? Are you safe or afraid for you life?
