    Your story is heartbreaking and your ending, in which you write that you hope it helps someone else, shows a very kind heart. I am so sorry to read what you have been through - you did not deserve such a childhood. No one does.

    Your life is neither worthless, nor disgusting. Victims of abuse often feel that way, but it simply isn't true. On top of that, you've got issues with parents abandoning you. Your feelings of self disgust and worthlessness are a reflection of the negative messages you received as a child from toxic people who had no business being in charge of you. They are at fault here, not you. Please remember that. Every child deserves to be treasured and nurtured and when they aren't, it has a terrible impact on their self image and self worth. Unfortunately, it is the messages we receive in childhood that are rooted most deeply and are the hardest to get rid of. It might help you to check out some internet sites on adult survivors of childhood abuse. Here's one I pulled up on google: http://www.havoca.org/ I know nothing about this group but offer it as a stepping stone from which you can start your own research. Talking to other abuse victims will be wonderfully helpful to you - they will understand and give you hope, as well.

    The internet can only help so much of course. You need concrete help closer to home. What are you doing for food and shelter? Is there someone who can help you find out about community resources where you can go for help? I wish I knew something about South Africa but I'm in the US and don't know what kinds of services are available at all.

    I was very sad to read about the way your mother just packed up and moved out. It sounds like you recognize that it wasn't your fault, but it still has to hurt deeply. I hope you can reconnect with her soon and work things out. It sounds like she has been on your side in the past so it might be this is just a temporary set back. Right now it strikes me that you could really use a hug.

    I think people facing homelessness and sudden upheaval in their lives often feel suicidal and hopeless. I know I have. i hope you will keep posting and reading here. You will find a lot of people who care and who can relate to what you feel.

    Welcome to the forum. I'm so sorry that you feel that life is worthless. You are young and what happened to you was not your fault. You are a at very low ebb and YOU ARE NOT WORTHLESS. Yes, life has been cruel to you but life is important and that includes you.

    When we find ourselves at our lowest point, we must find the inner strength to continue with living on a day by day basis. You have to be kinder to yourself.
    We all here understand you feelings and know what you are going through.

    You enjoy your birthday and be strong. I know it's hard but also seek group therapy which will help.

    Be safe and keep posting here.

    shane33401, I was so happy to read your post. It sounds like you're in a really good place right now. Three weeks is long enough to actually do some good and the support groups will give you lots of feedback and insight from people who understand what it's like to feel suicidal. I think you're wonderful to want to help others in the same boat as yourself - it sounds like you have a big heart. I'm very glad your suicide attempts were unsuccessful - the world needs more caring people like you. I bet you are providing support to some of your fellow patients right now!

    You helped me - I was feeling kind of blue and then read this and was cheered up to see our words had made a difference.

    Chestnutmay Thanks alot for your encouraging words your first post really felt like you knew what you were talking about cause everything you said was spot on and its like you knew me that's why i was crying when i read your post and the other peoples posts but you read me like a book and exactly what you said is what happened in my life.

    Thanks for your guys support you really made me feel a bit better but i still have alot of hurt inside and i think if i try and help people with the same problem my pain would go away slowly.

    i hope so its just too much this feeling of pain wasn't brought in one day its something that was developed over time and it just got worse and worse i'm trying my best to hold on to my life cause there is a small part of me that still wants to live and i have a slight doubt of death i just want to help people in this kinda problem or any other feelings that they might have as we are human and not machines we need to be cared for and i am only 20 but i feel like i'm 50 years old cause ive been carrying this bag of pain for like forever so i would like to help and talk to people that are going through trouble and i would like to tell them thats its no there fault and i would like to explain why its not there fault it would make me feel better if i could just make someone else feel better.

    First of all, don’t ever let someone tell you you’re useless, because you’re not even close to that – you’re a great person, because many people wouldn’t be able to handle the things you’ve been through, but you keep holding on. You don’t deserve that. I’m so angry at your uncle for doing those horrible things to you, but you know – what goes around, comes around. The fact that you are trying to help other people with their problems shows that you are a very kind person and it’s not fair that bad stuff happen to the good people, it hurts me a lot. Wish you luck with the support group, I’m sure you’ll meet many people and you’ll help each other. Please, don’t give up, the world needs you.

    Hey shane33401, thanks for letting me know my words helped! I worry a bit about saying the wrong thing.

    You're absolutely right this pain won't go away quickly. The kinds of things you've been through do make us old before our time - it is no wonder you feel 30 years older than you are. Fortunately you actually are much younger and it will be easier for you to reprogram some of those negative messages you have about yourself than it would be if you really were 50. I'm actually older than that, and believe me, it is very hard work to get rid of self-destructive thought patterns after so long.

    I think you are a very strong caring person and admire you greatly for wanting to help others. Helping others helps ourselves. It also gives us an external focus which is good because otherwise it is all too easy to get caught up in our own internal pain.

    Looks like you've got a lot of supporters here! Keep writing and I hope things are going well at the clinic!
