Counselor says I've been emotionally abused all my life; says I am shame based. I'm in counseling for depression and anxiety, attachment issues and general hopelessness, but he has to call every time and tell me I'm late because time no longer exists for me. Glad I'm 5 minutes away from his office! I'm tired of having my feelings and thought be so easily dismissed or forgotten. My counselor also believe that I am not an introvert by nature. Instead, he insists it is how I adapted to being a very lonely child. I'm also, not surprisingly, very avoidant. I never felt lonely as a child. I embarrassed to say I've become a lonely adult.

Hey Aquidel,

Sorry to hear about your struggles. I think lots of people here can relate to "being strong once" and feeling like a shadow of their former self now. It goes with the territory. Mental illness shakes your foundations, and if they weren't strong to start with the impact can be great.

So a big :welcome: from me! I see that you're already posting on the main forum, but if you need any help or info, give me or one of the other forum guides (names in bright pink) a PM.

Hi AQuidel and welcome to the forum.

You don't sound pathetic at all. You're just struggling and finding it difficult to cope. I think we've all been there at some time or another. :hug1:

No, no - you're perfect because - that's exactly the same for me! No one gets it when I say the exact same thing!

Thanks - I don't know if I'll fully get into my garbage here - there's a lot. I did start a journal but there should be a definite trigger warning.
