First....let me get this out....I am so sorry you are having such a hard time. I was almost in tears reading your post. Yeah, I can understand your pain....esp. when you have to bury it and pretend that everything is OK for so long....

And as to your upbringing....wow, yeah. Hearing a daily dose of that garbage can play with your mind. I know. I had a foster parent who, for whatever reason (I suspect to make herself feel better) did the same thing to us foster kids.

I would agree wholeheartedly with the posters above. PLEASE get some help. I'd venture to say you have been battling depression for some time, and the stresses of life (and you have had MORE than your fair share, my friend) are making things worse....and have got you to your breaking point...

I've been at war with atypical major depressive disorder for a large part of my life (was dx @ 19, suspect I had it since I was 15-16) so, yeah, it's not a picnic....please at least speak to a professional...if you can.
