Hi there and Welcome to HealingWell,
Like Shy, my main concern is that you are safe where you are. You have obvously been through a lot and it takes a lot of courage to speak out, even if you only say a little bit so please dont put yourself down for not doing enough. Do you see a therapist who you could talk to? I think you would really benifit from talking to someone who is completely impartial and unbiased. Please keep talking to us. We are always here.
I can understand about the bad counselors. I have had my share too, but I finally found some good counselors. I would suggest you keep looking, there are some very good ones.
In the meantime we are all here for you. So continue posting and we will help you in any way that we can.
I am sorry about the counselor making advances towards you. Did you report him? I had something similar happen to me and i talked to my doctor about it. Come to find out this counselor had been repremanded for doing that before. He didn't actually do anything to me but it was some things that he said. It was hard for me because here I had been trusting him and then to find out that I wasn't able to anymore. It really made me angry, and of course it put stress on me and it made my depression worse like you said.
I hope that you can find this site comfortable and stick around. There are many wonderful people here that are more than happy to listen and hoperully help you.
Have a wonderful day.
