    Hello there,
    I am so sorry to hear this. Are you being treated for your depression via therapy or medication? Don’t give up. You are still so very young. Life gets hard and let me tell you – I am 31 years old and I still have hard times. As we speak, I’m going through a horrible break up and even though I am sad, I know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I truly believe that things will get better for you. I think that the depression may be why you are sleeping in and have no desire to go to school. What do you parents think? I think maybe speaking to someone about the abuse you suffered may be helpful. Again, I hope things get better.

    Hi Jennifer,
    You know, I’ve told myself that is the plan. I’m going to focus on me. I was actually in the process of applying to law school, so I plan to keep pushing. I won’t let this break-up hold me back. It just feels good to talk to other people that have gone through this. My family isn’t very understanding because they didn’t care for him and it would’ve been a ‘told ya so’ type of conversation.

    Hi Anita,
    Thanks for your reply. Throughout our relationship, he’d say he would change. He’d always swear he would do better about communicating and other things. I always believed him. Now, throughout that 10/11 years, there were breaks and times we didn’t speak because he’d just stop talking to me. I won’t lie. I held on and put up with him because of my low self-esteem. I have an autoimmune disorder that has disfigured me and because I am disfigured in my genital area, I thought no one else would ever love me, so I stayed. I voiced my concerns, but I always took him back and when he didn’t change, I suffered in silence.

    I loved him, but I put up with emotional abuse because of my condition.
