Lost

I've lived with depression my whole life and it has beaten me down.

I was the only boy with 3 sisters and a mother and father who hated their life and took it out on me. Physical abuse (slaps, hits, belts, hangers, fist, feet) and emotional terror was my life most days of my childhood. I'm 27 now and have been seeking and receiving treatment for about 6 years.

It has steadily gotten worse over my life and the last 6 months have been a serious test on my will to live.. it's virtually gone. The only thing keeping me alive is the fact that I dont want to die. I've almost ended it 3 times and I dont think there will 4th "try" as they say.

I dont have much time left, I'm lost.

It's hard to let go of the two people who were suppose to love you. Who said they did.

Hi sad! I’m so glad you posted on this forum. This group is great at talking things out. They are understanding, warm, and nurturing. I’m so sorry to hear your story. Shame on your parents. You are a blessing! You seem like such a kind and beautiful soul. I think you will make a fabulous parent. Maybe that could be something to look forward to?!?!
