Hello, I was unsure of posting on here as its my first time. I struggle with depression every day, I have done for as long as I can remember. I've had a pretty Shit childhood tbf, been abused when I was 8, my dad going in and out of prison, my dad beating my mum up, a family that don't really care and both parents were alcoholics growing up and stepdad. Bullied all through junior and secondary school for my appearance and family issues, watching my dad take drugs as a kid, my brother nearly died from a stroke aged 20, all my friends have abandoned me. I have no-one who understands. I have a 4 year old son who keeps me going but I don't know how long I can keep living like this, I cannot get over my past, it haunts me everyday. Anyone else in a similar situation, struggling to cope with a traumatic childhood?
