Just don't know what to do. - April 22nd 2010, 03:48 AM

I've really got nowhere to turn to so I'm trying "Dah int3rnetz" and seeing how this will work out.

I've had a pretty damn traumatic childhood. When my parents divorced, my mother would beat the fuck out of me and just mutilate the little self esteem an 8 year old had. Somehow I ended up with my father back in Quebec and he's really nice and all, but I feel horribly horribly lonesome. Maybe it's the linguistic barrier(I can talk french relatively fluently but I still consider my francais poor) but I just have no one I can relate to, talk and tell them how I really feel. Sure I have friends, but I'm just not myself at school. I put up a mask, and maybe 1 or 2 people I can gladly call my real friends know the real me, but I feel like they don't care.

I'm really tired of this charade and latest events in my life aren't helping. I don't know what to say, and how to put it. I'm skipping out on a lot of detail, but I'm just in a miserable rut here, and I don't know why. Just ever since my parents divorced I have been miserable. I just wish somebody would pull me out of this forgotten tomb, I want to live again.

Hi patrick.

Im sorry to hear what you are going through. What your mum did to you was completetly out of order, you didnt deserve any of it. Your mums behaviour has left you scarred. Thats not your fault. You know you can still report her to social services for the violence situation she put you in.

I was the same at school, although everyone spoke the same language it was still difficult being myself.......
But, you said you had 1 or 2 friends that are real friends. Thats really nice, have you spoken about the horrid abuse you went through to them?

In my honest opinion, I think you need some therapy. You are going through a tough time and the only way you can get proffesional help is by talking to someone. Get rid of the nasty memories, and start thinking positive.

Remember you are not in the wrong, and there is a light at the end of the tunnel which I believe you will reach.

Take Care

Our lives are like music.
It hits its high and low notes,
But in the end,
It all turns into a perfect melody
