Hi Dixie,

You have come to the right place. At least I think so. We are here for you. You are doing all of the things. I really suggest counseling though. Somebody imparcial who can get you on the right track.

You are right when you say that you have to get help for yourself before you can help anybody else. You need to make sure that you and your imediate family are on the right track. Then you can try and get help for the rest of the family.

Remember that you can't control what road your siblings chose to go down. But you can try to be an influence for them. Hopefully they will follow a path similar to what you have chosen.

I know that it is hard watching your mom drink vodka. That must be so sad for you. But you can only recommend things for her to do to get better. You sound like such a sweet person and it is sad to think of all the abuse that you have experienced. But you seem very strong, maybe the strongest one of all. And I think that asking for help is a good move. And the beginning to a healing process. I think that you will be able to show the rest of the family how important it is for all of you to be strong and try to keep in contact with eachother throughout the future.

Keep posting, we will help you in any way that we can. Good luck to you, you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Hugs, Karen

Hi Dixie and Welcome to HealingWell,

I am so glad that you have found us here. We are like a big family here and we all care for and support each other so there is no shortage of people out there.

First things first, you need to take care of number 1. If you dont look after yourself then you wont be able to look after anyone else. Are you having any kind of treatment for your depression? Talking therapies are very useful in dealing with depression... also hypnosis has been shown to be useful but clinical evidence is a little lacking. Have you thought about family therapy? This might be a solution where by you can all get the help and support you need in a professional sense.

Please keep talking to us. You will be amazed how much simply releasing problems here can help.

Hi Dixie

I too want to welcome you to the forum,there are alot of caring people here.

I too went through a bad childhood,and it is very hard to overcome the anger and hurt that you have inside of you.

As Karen and Darren suggested,therapy is your best option right now.

Your kids need you,and I am sure see that you are depressed....

HI Dixie,

I am so happy that you found us. There is help out there for people that don't have insurance. It is just a matter of finding the resources. But local mental health places usually have programs that you can get into. Sometimes you might have to go through human resources to get them. But there should be some options out there for you.

Just writing things down helps a lot. Writing to us, or keeping a journal can help. It really makes you feel better if you can get it down on paper. Also we are here for you.

What kind of tumor do you have? Have you had any tests done on it? What did your doctor say about it? Let us know okay?

I hope that you are feeling better. Keep us posted on how you are doing.

Hugs, Karen

Hello Dixie,

I am Kitt and welcome to HealingWell.  I wrote a post last night and it ended up in cyberspace so tonight I will try to get it on the board.

I am so sorry for all your sadness and issues. You are not responsible for your parents behavior and you cannot help them unless they want to seek help.  You can help yourself and right now it sounds to me like you need to start believing in you.  Your a good person and just because your Mother turned out to have serious issues does not mean your destiny is tied to hers.

I am saddened to here that your in-laws make fun of you.  Your relationship with your husband is strained also........sweetie, you do need to see someone to help you and maybe you could start with your physician.  Do not be afraid to talk to your physician as he/she is there for you.

I am concerned about your  tumor, would you mind sharing more info re that with us? It may be a contributor to your feelings.

Please keep posting and let us help you.  We are here 24/7 and although it may be a short wait late at night for someone to pop in we do have members from all over the world so we are in different time zones.

Gentle Hugs to you

Kitt

So i had to wait until i had my baby well that year went by and i was a mommy of 2 now. but instead of enjoying it i got but on physcail therarpy and tons of mri and dr appts .. they tryed to give me medication but im to scared to take it loritabs are what alot of people i know abuse i dont want it around me im scared of it you could say so finally my dr decide that i need to have spinal injections in my spine its like some kinda of steryoid .. well i had 3 of them then finally he says surgery to had to buldgeing disk and major nerve darnage to my left leg and servere in my right ... and that causes numbness and tingleing and purple feet its bad cerreculation well a month before my surgey my dr tells me to go get a mri for my surgery so i did ... when i got to his office he told me that he had to redue my mri because the place were i got it done at, they messed up the did the mri to low... so i went right there and took the mri, i went back in the room and waited and waited ... he came in ill never forget how cold he was to me . looking down at a pad of paper he says its a good thing they messed up you have a tumor at the very end of you spine, you seem to have a large left thryoid, do you need any medication refills ,,,,,, stay here ill give the nurse your check out form .. have a good day .. and walked out..... dureing that whole time that dr never made eye contact with me..... and never brought it up anymore really i just sat there though and the nurse came in and i just kinda grabbed her arm while stareing off to space with my eyes full of tears ready to pour down into a puddle i said tumor .. did i hear him right did he just tell me that I ME ME I have a tumor she said yes baby you do but your going to be fine okay just sit down and calm down i refused to sit and just walked out to my car.. you see now my lawsuit is over... so i dont see that dr anymore..... .i was told that the tumor or the thyroid had nothing to do with my car accident so the dr could not treat or response medically about that with me .... the insureance is not going to pay for something they didnt do!!!

Hiya,

If I had a pound for every time I have heard "Its in your head" , "Its not a mental condition" , "Your just a weak person" and "You just need to pull yourself together" then I wouldnt have to work because I'd be a millionaire. The truth is that ALL those phrases are FALSE. Depression is a REAL condtion which is NOT just in your head (I.e. you imagine it). People with depression are NOT weak and they need MORE than just pulling themselves together. Thats why drug companies developed anti-depressants and why psychologists developed therapies. Why would they go to all that effort for something that isnt real? **Takes a deep breath... ** Ive finished ranting now! tongue

There are loads of people here who care about each other. Thats one of the reasons we are here. Moderators are no different to members really other than we volunteer our time to make sure nothing goes unanswered and that everone sticks to the rules. Im 23 so I am about the same age as you... perhaps I can relate on a level there. I first had diagnosed depression when I was 17 (Although I believe I had it long before that) and I have recently started taking AD's again (about 6 months ago I think) after a family problem and I was assaulted. You are never to young in my opinion. But you need to get some help for it.

Thats just my opinion. Please keep talking to us

. im crazy aint i

nope! :-)
You have lots on your plate... thats for sure, and you take it to heart perhaps too much,,,
but crazy,,,, nono don't think soo...
When things are going bad its easy to wallow in self pity!!!
Don't go there,, your kids need you, so does your ma and pa even if they don't say so..
You are an important person just as much as everyone elas here in this wonky world
Look to the bright side of life,, sometimes its hard to find, but it is there...
Look at how much you care for people, how worried you are about existing conditions,,,
nothing wrong with being sad over it all, we are only human after all. :-)
just don't dwell in the past..
look to the future, be there for your kids and folks, no matter how tough it may be..
sometimes in trying to help others you will find you are really helping yourself...
meanwhile, I'll keep sending hopes and prayers your way yeah

Keep the faith girl
I'll back you all the way! cool

Dear dixiedarlin2,

Crazy you R NOT.  If your crazy that makes us all crazy............you have depression and obviously with all of your personal issues you have many rights to be so.  You also may have some PTSD from your childhood and having been raised by a father that allowed you to be abused and a Mother that was in an abusive marriage.  Now you are living in an abusive marriage.

Your self esteem has never developed IMHO and I think we should work on that.  Also have you ever looked up all the agencies in your state that would be able to help your, there are shelters for women that are in abusive situations and there are agencies that will help you get mental health services if you have no monies. You, my young Mom, need to get mad and start to fight back for yourself and your two children.

Here is the link for the NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness:

www.nami.org/   You will be able to find your own state affilates on the site.  Please contact them and tell them you need help.  There are many sites online that will be able to refer you to help.

When your fears and depression  have the best of you, it is easy to feel that things will not get any better. This is not true. There is much help available in today‚Äôs society and the best way to deal with your fears is to find effective ways to overcome them.

You have taken a hug leap of faith in talking to us my new friend so don't stop now.  Start believing in yourself.  You are a worthy person and you do not have to help everyone else right now.  Your number one person to take care of is you.

Just one more thing that bothers me.....................the car insurance may not have been responsible for paying for your tumor medical bills but they are certainly responsible for a mis-diagnosis which is what happened to you.

On behalf of the physician that turned into a cold and non-communicative professinal, I apologize as that is not the way  medical professionals should treat any patients.

Gentle Hugs to you and remember you are a good and kind person.  God Bless

Kitt

Thank you all so much, your right i do have things to look at each and everyday that makes me smile. and its my two children sadie and patrick aka lil man, it the fact that they dont no how not to love me, they dont no how to stop loving me .. its a unconditional love!!!!
 
I love my husband so much we have together since i was 16, when i fell i fell hard for him... he didnt attend my school. so that made it better. he couldnt see how the other kids really thought of me, he only thought of what i told him and what he saw was my family ... which WAS awesome we were alwas laughing joking playing games outside we WERE a close family.
 
 patrick got good in with us quick, he was also funny and a great personality... well it took patrick a year to bring me around any of his family. later finding out he thought i would make fun of him because of his parents house because it wasent well kept up very trashy and dirty.. but i didnt care i laughed when he thought that it would bother me..
 
well his dad is a very opiniontive man.. hes really just cold hearted he really is patricks mom is a very large women.. we went to eat at a restraunant with his family and when the waiter asked what we would like.. he told the guy that his fat  wife wanted a plate of all... she kinda smirked and orderd a salad .. i couldnt believe my eyes ... but it only got worse he would make me cry all the time in public and just at home at family gathereing he was picking on my weight.. all the time then
 
it then out of no where my family begings to crumble patricks dadd felt that as a better time to make me cry .... he would just make remarks about how my dad  and how my mother is a drunk...
 
when my mom tryed to commit sucide i got the phone call at his home... i droped to the floor and gasp for air... he felt the time to tell me that he would take me to the hosiptal just to knock the breath out of my mom before she went ... he was talking about haveing with her he told me it was a good time for her to ..... i hate this man ..
 
 patrick has barley ever tooken up for me ... but i have aslo darn near fight people because they hurt me.... me and patrick use to laugh and talk stay up late just giggleing ... then as he kept on cheating he faded away peice by peice every time he went off he forgot to bring it back when we got back together..... now its different we barely talk..
 
i see alot of his father in him ... HIS WAY OR THE HIGHWAY patrick tells me that sometimes he throws things and makes very mean comments to me one time he called me a fat ass in front of people .... it hurt so bad.... i thought that it didnt matter anymore ..... i thought that he loves me who cares what other people think..... but when he said that i was like "oh my god it does matter to him"
 
it hurt now im 6 foot tall okay that pretty big already for a female... i dont consider myself fat .... thick yes ... but fat .. No not really i mean i am hard on myself but thats because i 6 ft now come on that sucks growing up can you imagine in school when i had the bottom locker it was like having the top too. ... haha the kids hated having to share there locker with me .. when i was on my kneess trying to get to my own bottom locker, my head was right up there all up in there locker space haha... sorry just trying to make yall smile for chance...
 
but anyways patrick has made queit a few comments about when i say that im tired of being treated this way he tells me that he sorry and that it will all be over soon..... he means that as in his dad will pass away soon and he will treat me better.. when i try to talk about it he gets real defenceive.. see his dad worked him all his life .. he works for his father now to .. but patrick is such a hard worker, he really is i cant atleast say that about him... patrick wants his daddy to say hes proud of him.... just like i always wanted to my father to say..

Hi Dixie,

I am sorry but I had to edit your post. Some of the things that you were talking abuot are inappropriate for the younger members.

I think that you really need some help with the situation that you are in. I think that a counselor or social worker could help you. You are a good person and you need to be treated better than you are. Can you get an appointment to see a therapist? I really think that would be a good idea. You need help getting things the way that they should be. You are being treated badly by people and don't deserve that.

hugs, Karen

Don't feel bad for talking, you deserve to be able to get things out. Sometimes just telling somebody helps you to see things better. I am sure that it does make you sad, but, you are human like all of us are. You deserve to be heard.

But I think that counseling would also help you. You need some support. And a therapist or counselor can help you with that.

Hugs, Karen

Good Morning to you. I am so sorry for what you have been through and I have to agree with Karen,  you need to get into therapy to be able to receive some professional counseling.  We are here to support you, encourage you and listen but we are not professionals and I believe in order to heal you need a combination of therapy and perhaps medications and belonging to a support group like this.
 
I hope you keep posting here and please know we all care about you.
 
Also please make an appointment to see your physician and he/she should be able to help direct you to the right place to receive therapy.
 
Everyone that comes here is equal and no one's problem is more important then the next person's so please do not think your problems are less important.  Your pain is real and your reaching out to us is such a positive sign that you recognize you need help.
 
Hugs to you
Kitt

Me and patrick cant afford it .. I dont want no one to put me in a home ... And the mental place here there not nice there .. I use to take my aunt and they are very cruel humans that dont listen they only judge.. I have never talked to anyone else about my problem try to talk to my husband but he doesnt like hearing it, he always has the same answer to everything .. He dont no what to do and its all in my head... I dont have really any friends i stay on this computer all the time i cant sleep at night i go to bed around 3 in the morning.... I dont find nothing intresting on tv and i dont no what i want to do when given the chance... My life is very slow and everyday is the same..... Today was a good day today its started off okay then i got a lil aggravated but ive cooled down im trying to think that it can always be worse .. Right now im fine i guess upset that it seems like a moms job is never done i keep cleanng and cleaning and it seems like im only geting the surface of the house work done... But like they say a mothers work si never done!!! I still wih i could change everything though... My dad made me quit school when i got pregnate .. He told me that he wasent going to let people think that he didnt raise me right.. I live in a very small close town.. Everybody knows everyone... He told me that he lived in that town all his life and he wasent going to let people think bad of him.. He had a name to protect!!!! I couldnt believe he could tell his own flesh and blood that....my whole life i grew up as the bigger girl i am 6 ft now .. So iv basicly have always been the biggest girl taller than most guys in my grade growing up... Well my dads family is full of beauty queen ,perfect, the best at everything, people i was never allowed to stay the night at my cousins house .. They would tell me that i didnt belong in there group, christmas was really dule ...everyone got a gift except me .. Oh there was the red sweater that i got every year by my grandma ... But looked forward to it .. I still have all 12 of them lol.....i have always had to pretend that i was a big tough girl at school .. Like i wasent scared of nothing.. Even though i was the biggest cry baby on the way home ... But haveing 7 brothers and sisters the picking comes when i got home to .. So i had no exscapeing it... My mom would always tell me incourageing things that made it better she would come and check me out of school to make me feel special .. I miss them days.... I am very insecure .... I had alot of friends you can say of course they refered me to jakes lil sister... It made me look cool ... I was friends with a lil bit of each kinda crowd .. The popular the dorks the party people the counrty people .. All different .. It was the guys that didnt like me so much ..they would make fun of me and i would try to fight them .. Not many women 6 ft tryed that with them so ina way they were scared ... Well after i left school .. I got to hear what people realy thought about me .. For instance when i see someone from school they walk away or have a fake smile.. I dont have no friends since may 29 of 2003 i havent spoke to a single friend or person that i new in school!!!! No one has ever liked me im really nice person i try to be. People just dont give me a chance well if they do .. Patrick wont let me have friends he says there all bad people.... Or he would sleep with them if they were girls .. I was to scared after he done that with what i thought was a best friend since 3rd grade ... 5 months after our daughter was born.... It done it more thought he stop right now and i dont think he will cheat again but i do get a fear about it!!!!!! Never mind im just rambleing bye

 

Reason for Edit:

I have changed the case of your post from BLOCK CAPS to Sentence Case as it is easier to read and some people find BLOCK CAPS rude. Darren

Dear Dixie,

I am at a loss as what to say to you so I would like to post links to a couple of abuse support sites that may help you.  I know you said you spend all day on the computer so please take time to look at these sites.

This is a site that is owned by a friend of mine.  I am not on this site as I am not a victim of abuse. 

Healing Minds

http://www.freewebs.com/healingminds/

This one is another great site for people that have been through abuse and if covers all kinds of abuse.

I notice your last post was in caps and perhaps you did not notice but just a gentle reminder,  remember, using ALL CAPITAL LETTERS in posts is considered yelling and rude, plus it is difficult to read. 

I wish you peace and I hope someday you will find the happiness that you so deserve.  God Bless.

Kitt

Hi Dixie
 
I normally don't post but you reminded me so much of myself when I was younger. I got my height 5'10-3/4" early also. I had very little self esteem and boy did I make some wrong choices and allowed myself so much abuse because I thought I did not deserve any better. I also come from a family of 7.
Well things finally changed only when I had enough. My Dad died and it made me really look at myself.
I started looking everywhere that would help get an education and where I could have by sons watched.
I ended up taking a class and got a job. I went to welfare and got childcare.
as years went by I met someone who did not abuse me verbally or physically. I ended up with a career and worked over 26 years until my health failed. I left my job as a Senior Engineer.
My husband passed away last year at the age of 83 and I am still searching for ways to combat the blues when I am lonely.
I read your posts and it has helped me recognize how far I have come. YOU can do the same.
Look in the mirror, stand tall, pull those shoulders back and smile. There is no one has beautiful as you are.
You are smart enough to be on the computer and you also express yourself quite well. Make it work for you.
Try to go to night school even one night a week. Do not let anyone stop you from growing. I feel the reason a lot of people try to stop you, is because they think you will leave them if you think better of yourself.
I understand you love your husband even when he treats you bad. But hopefully there will come a time that you will love yourself more.  Your family will have to take there own journy.
You have reached out for help by coming to this forum. Soon it will be another step to change your life and strive for more happiness. Even in a small town I know there are places that can help you, but you will have to do research. Be strong and reach out.
 
Good Luck.

Dixie,

Wow, ten1 said it so well and she can talk from experience.  What a great post for you.  She is so right, you do have options and talent.  You are young and strong and it is not to late for you to get out in the world and be the best that you can be.  I know you want that but are stuck in where to start.

Try writing down all the things you would like to do, everything, even if it sounds silly put it down.  What work would you like to do,  where would you like to see yourself in 5 years..............doing what, living where.

Just go with your list and then read it over and add more if you want.  It is a starting point.  Identify what you want versus what you have.

You want to feel productive, independent, cared for, appreciated and respected I suspect. You deserve a good life.

Start at the begining with babysteps to get you to where you want to be.

Bless you

Kitt

Thank you all so very much! I really appriciate yalls concern..im scared there going to put me in a looney ben if i talk to anyone outside this forum. I just want help and i dont want anyone knowing that i need it. but then again, i feel like if everyone around me hasent noticed already then who cares if they dont notice when i get help.. i dont no i just dont no im just tired of being this way.. it seems like all i do is sit around and stair into to space .. i need to be more positive.. im strong im beautiful and i can do this, i have to remind myself that i amd a human and i make mistakes. if patrick doesent want to go through my changes with me then he can leave im not going to give up on my kids or myself.. they need me more than i need me.. and if im to crazy to be there then that mean they live with him.. i cant do that .. so i have to get over this hump and become who my kids need me to be.. thank you all so much .. im trying so bare with me ..
