    Today I feel like I'm struggling to keep myself above the surface.
    Feeling alone and tired of fighting to make life better.

    This was a comment to a post I put in a Facebook group for abuse victims. I don't post my whole story because it's looooooong, there are a huge number of details, and I don't feel like typing all of that everytime I need support. Besides, no one ever really understands. I get judged, blamed, and it's all turned on me. I don't understand this, especially in groups for people suffering from abuse. I'm in an emotionally and mentally abusive relationship and can't leave. I mentioned I needed to see my cats, which aren't with me, because we're stuck in a motel, to explain why she mentions my cats. More about the situation with my cats, and the whole situation, is in some of my previous posts here. I have OCD, panic disorder, and depression, plus physical disabilities. I'm not lazy. I've cleaned, cooked, and done other household chores in the house we lived in and apartments before that. I've gotten worse, both mentally and physically. She doesn't know me, but she immediately seemed accusatory. My boyfriend had told me Saturday he was going to do laundry, but later claimed he said he'd do it when he got around to it. He told me he'd do it that day. He has money to do it: I don't. He did laundry yesterday. I got upset when I came back Saturday to find he hadn't, because I had no shirts left, had planned to go out, and I was going to visit my cats. Here's her latest comment, which is highly misinformed and hostile:

    You have to visit your cats. Are you kidding? You claim he was supposed to do laundry. Nobody does laundry. All you have to do is put the clothes in the washing machine and the machine does the work. Then all you have to do is put the wet laundry in the dryer and the machine does the work. Then all you have to do is take the dry clothes out of the dryer and either fold your clothes or hang them up. Seems to me you're extremely lazy and come up with excuses.

    I got out early today because I can't stand being around my boyfriend and I feel awful in the motel room. I'm tired because I haven't had much sleep. When he goes out, he tells me about his friends buying him beers, even though he knows I'm always alone and wish I had friends. I feel like screaming sometimes, because it's neverending. I'm constantly alone, except when I'm with him. And I don't want to lie on that bed I've peed on so many times. I keep trying to look for resources, but I get anxious because of forms, places I can't live, organizations I can't accept help from, people who don't understand, etc. I need to get out of this situation and into a better, happier one with a house, my cats, and my stuff! I'm going crazy!

    โœจMentally tired โœจ#mentalabuse #MentalHealth #Anxiety #Depression

    Today, I've realized how my mom has really mentally abused me since I came to live with her. On Monday, my dad decided to send me money so I can buy personal stuff. Today, I was really excited to spend some money buying clothing online, but then my mom came and told me that I shouldn't be having my hopes so high since she was gonna take my money for herself. She told me "I pay for everything you have! I pay for a roof under your head, for your food, for your clothing- etc.So now that money you have in that bank account is mine since your dad never really gave me money for your things! This is a lie, my dad always tried to send me money, but she blocked him due to a stupid fight they had because my dad didn't send her enough to get her satisfied! That fight happened like 6 months ago and she still hasn't gotten over it. I couldn't fight her back since I was scared that I was gonna end up with a bruise on my face, so I just had to agree with her! I also talked to her about my birthday- since I was planning on it and I told her that if she'd let me work I can pay for my birthday party. She just decided to bring up all the mistakes I've made lately and told me I didn't deserve it. It made me feel so worthless! I'm now crying in the restroom because I can't stop overthinking about it! Today I was gonna tell her I had a boyfriend but now-I'm too scared to tell her! because I feel that she is gonna try for us to be as far as each other as we can! and I don't want that! So I'm just deciding to tell her when I can actually talk to her face to face even though It's gonna be hard since she is the reason that I'm so mentally tired (+ my stepdad, but that's a whole different story) One thing that makes me angry is that they don't accept that they have mentally abused me for years now, and whenever I tried to talk they always say I just want attention and that I shouldn't feel that way since I have everything in the world! And In my opinion, I'm really grateful to them for everything I have! and just because I've made a lot of mistakes doesn't mean that they are allowed to mentally abuse me. I didn't really know how to ever show them I was grateful because I always ended up doing some mistake that they are probably gonna bring up 3 years after. So when I got in 8th grade, I just gave up! I almost decided to kill myself once! and my parents find out and yall know what they say-"You just want attention, well you ain't gonna get it." I've tried telling them once that they were mentally abusing me, but they came at me with a confused face- and that's when I said "never mind they're never gonna get it" So, that's when I started talking about that as soon as I turned 18, I'm moving out and live on my own because living with them is all fun and stuff, but it's overwhelming and my mental health can't handle it anymore! So now, I'm just wishing that my 18th birthday comes fast even though I still have to wait 2 1/2 years for it! I just gotta be patient and be calm!
