it sounds like you are having an emotional catharsis. in the end, it is probably healing. going through it, it's the pits.
my shrink told me that i was probably suffering from post traumatic stress disorder from the abuse i suffered as a child. from what litle you said, i might expect the same diagnosis for you - perhaps secondary or tertiary. of course, i'm not a shrink, so can only give you an opinion.
you were a little girl and had to function as an adult in an unforgiving adult world. i identify with that. it leaves scars that may never go away, even if they only become white lines,
18 and having yiour mon (mum) help you? i wish mine would have cared as much! your brain isn't even through growing yet, scots. you may be able to drive, drink, and join the military; but you still have a child's brain physiologically until you are in your mid-twenties. no appologies necessary. consider yourself fortunate to have the support. i can only suggest that you take full advantage of the support and that which stems from it. help yourself. in the end, there ain't nobody out there.
best wishes and good luck.
I dont think your a baby. It sounds like getting things off your chest was a good thing and hopefully something good can come out of it. I can completely relate to not being able to settle at anything. If im in the "wrong mood/frame of mind" (for want of a better phrase) I cant settle to do anything and will spend hours walking between the kitchen and lounge and back and forth. Every time I try to settle, I get bored within about 30 secs and give up.
At 18, your perfectly entitled to have your parents help you. Just as you would be at 38. I am 22 so I am only 4 years older than you and know how hard it is to get GP's to understand sometimes. Hopefully you will get another councillor and you will be back on track again.
