You have really had a tough time of it, alice. Being an abused child is very hard on us and changes who we are. The last time my father abused me, I was 17 years old.....so I understand your fears and sadness.
I would think you are right about
getting some counseling again. You are 16, and will be able to learn things very well to help yourself get out of these sad feelings. None of that stuff from your childhood is your fault. You must start liking yourself. Tell yourself that in the mirror everyday. It seems weird at first.....but I didn't try it until I was about
43 years old, and it works. Say things like "you are a neat person" etc... I wish I would have done this at your age. I went a lot of years not liking myself for no reason.
Please keep coming here and talking. I'm so glad you made that step to speak with us.
