Alone And Scared

I am a 35 year old who is alone, lonely and scared.  It seems to me every time I start getting to know a few people I run.  I have been emotionally abused all my life by my family.   Every contact with them i am told how stupid, ugly and messed up I am.   I have been called everything from a ***** to monster to ugly to disgusting.    I have never had much confidence and it comes out in every aspect of my life.   It would be nice to get advice/support/know I'm not alone out here ....

Hello randomsufferer, you are not alone. I have been rejected and put down by many people and am very lonely and empty all the time. As the above poster says, support from one caring individual can make all the difference, but finding that one individual is so difficult. Most people have too many problems of their own or they don't really care about you, so talking to them about your feelings can make you feel even worse. Come here whenever you feel low as you will get a sympathetic hearing from people who understand.

You are not alone, my parents are still alive but have never really been a good thing for my life. I had to(after about the age of 40) get clear of their influence even though <br />

to the last I tried to help my Mom out in every way, she had gotten worse not better.<br />
I did at one time have support from the woman I should have married as she knew what was going on, but she had her own family concerns and we seperated by<br />
about a 1000 years. Support from a caring individual makes a difference, most othe "friends" that I have had have been either too superficial or too self-absorbed<br />
to cause any level of trust from me. Sad but true so I feel your pain.<br />
