I came here because I am feeling really alone and basically wondering what/who to turn to when I feel bad about myself. My main problem is my family has made it very clear that they don't want to hear about. I have attempted to explain to them I get really depressed at times and contemplate killing myself and they mock me and claim I am only saying it for attention. This is not unusual as the general attitude is indifference to my feelings or wants. I was raised by a mother who stated her other two daughters needed her and I could take care of myself. I now care for her and the attitude of indifference remains. Attempting to explain my feelings or wants only led to quarrels and is really a waste of time. My grown son has the same attitude and spends most of his time not speaking to me because I somehow offended him. The only other person around is a sister who was so spoilt by my mother she really cannot comprehend that other people may have needs and concerns. So, I feel alone, unloved and wondering where do I begin again as none of these people offer any hope to have a healthy relationship with.
