Hi y'all! I'm 23 years old and live at home. I'm in college, but am on summer break right now. I will start off with my history. My parents hooked up which is how I came about. My Dad left when he found out my Mom was pregnant and my Mom had severe depression to the point where she lost custody of me. She still struggles with this. My uncle voluntarily took me in and raised me. It was great of him to do that especially since he doesn't have a wife and I love him. But unfortunately we don't get along that well and it's partly because he's very narcissistic-like (he's never been diagnosed) which makes him very tempermental, controlling and mean at times. He always wants to be praised and does it himself if others don't. I compliment him when he deserves it and thank him when appropriate. He even told me he sometimes wishes he never took me in and that hurt. Sometimes he yells at me for no reason and I know he's proud of me, but rarely admits it. But there's another part of me that feels like I'm not good enough. Every time I meet his desires, his expectations just rise again. I struggle with depression and anxiety and he doesn't understand. Sometimes he even mocks me for it and that hurts my feelings. He's also very stubborn so communication isn't that easy. I just had to vent and criticism is welcome as long as it is constructive. Thanks!
