Could I go into foster care for emotional abuse alone?

I live in a super small town, and my parents don't understand anything that's happened to me, I was diagnosed with depression and they told me to get over it and stop being a baby. I cant live with them anymore because my mom has been physically abusive but not enough to report. They are seriously emotionally damaging me and I don't want to live with them anymore. I don't have anywhere else to go. No family, and I don't have any friends.

Should I live in a foster home? and what do I need to know about foster homes?

Like are there rules or what?.. Should I just go to a homeless shelter? I dont know what to do..ive been con|sidering moving out for months but Ive decided to actually do it now.

    my best friend was put into a foster home because her father was abusive and she had analcholic mother. i heard a lot of stories but in your case i think it would be a good idea .

    you will be moved from home to home until someone does accept you so i don`t know how that`s going to help your depression - your probably going to feel lonelier than ever but time heals everything .

    soon enough you`ll find a nice home and a family that will accept you. i am not sure about how exactly you could get into one but phone calls can be made and research can be done.

    another option i would go with is talking to another family member - maybe your grandmother or aunt ?

    i really do hope that everything works out for you. no one has the perfect family you see on tv but don`t ever feel like your alone. many people have it worse than you, and many have it better. just remember your among a lot of other teens struggling with society and their families.

    good luck <3

    im sorry to hear that hun i know how it feels i wish i dont have to live at home either im going through some rough times too but what you can maybe do is talk to your school thats what i did and after that everything was a little better but idk if you would want to live in a foster care because you never know what kind of people you can end up with they can be worse then it is now but if it gets to the point where it is really bad call 911 or find a social services number and use a diffrent phone to call from i hope you wont do that but only talk and try to find the help you looking for
