Hello...this is my first post. Just found this site. I need support that I am not getting from medicine (not working) or occassional counseling. I think it would help me to feel loved, which, due to depression and stressful family dynamics I usually do not. I think it would help if my parents knew how close I am...but in a mythical (?) way that they could somehow handle it. I just think having them call me and email me would make me feel supported, but I don't know how to ask. I called my Dad out of the blue a couple days ago and mentioned how nice it would be to see them. How I would love to spend a weekend just hanging out. The conversation got awkward and he didn't respond. It then switched to a topic that despite my unwillingness to argue, I could tell got him really riled up. I think for reasons that had nothing to do with me. But regardless, now it looks like a visit it off and I need to feel loved so bad. Any advice?
