> It is very sad to be robbed of a happy childhood because of genetics, bad upbringing or whatever. For this one should mourn --- and yes, feel cheated and be angry. Maybe you were from a family that didn't allow you to be angry. That is a lot of stored up rage to get out -- like when you vomit and you hate it while you are doing it but then you feel better after it is out of your body. A therapist can help getting the anger out.
They say depression is repressed anger. Maybe the rage is there.They also say anxiety is a step up from depression -- I guess because you are at least feeling something. Just be patient. It too shall pass. Hating yourself and beating yourself up because you are on meds is only going to make it worse. Cherish the person you are and know that you are doing the best you can. Katy
