Can you sue your parents if they abused you as a child?

Chicago, IL |

I was physically, verbally, mentally, and emotionally abused by both my parents, and now, at age 23, I cannot function in society. I live with a room mate who pays all the bills and I dont leave the apartment for days, sometimes weeks. I am scared of people, I have attempted suicide 3 tims and been in 9 mental wards.
