I am 14 years old and I have depression, social anxiety and ADD. My father is an alcoholic and has lost custody rights. I have my mom and stepdad, and I'm thinking that they verbally abuse me, but it'd be nice to get a second opinion. My parents have both threatened to beat me. My mom says things like, "if I knew this was how you were going to treat me, I would've never kept you" (this was her response to me cutting), "you're making everyone miserable and we are going to move out because of you." "I want to move to California by myself." "You're crude and selfish." "I can't see the good in you anymore." "You used to be my favorite but now your sister is." And often swear and yell at me.I was going to a therapist and my parents also, but my mom forced me to stop going after a bad family meeting with her and I when she said some hurtful things. The therapist did help me a lot. I'm taking antidepressants, but they don't seem to help as much.
