Sometimes I feel really guilty for complaining about my family. That must have been a nightmare for little you. A lot of it resonated but at a much lower decibel level.

I imagine your father must have felt a lot of frustration, but it's hard to understand how he let a little girl stay alone with what he couldn't handle himself. I don't know about now, but it would have probably been pretty difficult then to have her committed or to force any help on her. I remember with my aunt, it was difficult to get her committed unless she was flagrantly psychotic. Of course, it turns out that her husband was the one who should have been committed (jailed actually) and the kids were probably better off with her in the house. But I do remember there was a general reluctance to interfere in people's households back then. It may be different now.

I think it's terrific that you have been able to grow into the warm person that is evident in your posts. Do I remember you saying that you were considering therapy? It might be useful to deal with a lot of the feelings that you rightfully have. Secrets are meant to be exposed.
