Hi, I’m 17, and I think my parents may be verbally/emotionally abusing me but I’m uncertain. They make negative comments/jokes that I find insulting to my appearance and my intelligence, among other things. They reserve the right to go through my phone with or without my permission or knowledge and have done so in very sneaky ways. My mom doesn’t knock before coming into my room. She seems to be at least somewhat emotionally dependent on me, to a point that she has told me about her and my dad’s marital issues. She can be quite passive aggressive sometimes, too. At times she clearly favors my older brother over me. My dad often gets angry to the point of temper tantrums (screaming, cursing, one time he even started jumping up and down.) I suspect I’ve had anxiety and depression for 3-4 years now, but I haven’t been able to see anyone for a diagnosis or help due to my parents. I think that’s all of it but I could be missing some stuff. If it would be helpful, I’m ok with people private messaging me for specific examples of such behavior.
