Hi this is my first time that I have resorted to a site to post this. I found this site looking for some other way to talk about this since I can't afford to see a counselor. I have been on my own really since I was about 12-13. My father died of illness leaving me behind with my 2 sisters and my abusive drug addicted mother. at the age of 14 I was taken away from her and placed into foster care and bounced around. Ever since then I have been feeling alone, even though I have family I still have that empty void that has been growing and growing since my father passed away. I also am an open homosexual as well (came out of the closet at the age of 21 after years of struggling with sexual identity). Even though I have tired my hardest I feel like I am in a downward spiral of depression no matter what I do. I always feel alone (especially now that I am off to college), I feel that my life is worth nothing, no one really cares, and I have no one or place to call my own. I can't really feel like I could talk to anyone about this because well not many people have the patience to listen and as stated earlier I don't have the money to be paying for a counselor.
