Welcome to healing well. You will have friends here. We are all friendly people. The members here are nonjudgemental and have good advice due to experience.
First of all, not all therapists are bad. You just got one who was. And a lot of us are on meds. So that isn't so bad either. I would be wrong if I didn't try to encourage you to go to your doctor and talk about
getting more therapy and you might need medications. But that is totally up to you.
You sound like a very caring person and I am sure that you aren't ugly. You just see yourself as ugly. You have to realize that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Sometimes I can't stand the way I look, but my husband loves me just the way that I am and I am happy with that. Not that I don't care about
the way that I look, I do, but I don't base my life and the type of person that I am on looks. And I dont feel that way about
others. So I know that you just need some self esteem and that can be found with therapy.
Please feel free to chime in on any post. I am sure that you have also got advice for others because of all that you have been through. I am sorry about
your mom and her condition. I am sorry that she has a drinking problem. I know that is hard to live with. And I know that you probably can't understand why she would chose alcohol. But it is a disease just like depression. She probably can't help herself out of it.
I hope that you feel better soon. I am here for a while if you need to talk.
