I can relate to that! I didn't have the awful childhood that you had, but my mid and late teens were not at all good - my parents were both unavailable and my father was a big bully. I had lots of responsibilities that my friends didn't.

And the last three years or so I've felt that my adult responsibilities are too much to deal with. But I can't escape from them yet because my kids are still young. So I sometimes get very resentful.

In August my husband took the kids to visit his sister's family for a week. So I was all by myself for an entire week, with no responsibilities except to feed myself and attend to basic personal hygiene. I felt just fine. The depression lifted. I listened to music, read books, went for walks, cooked spicy food (which everyone else in my family hates) and even did some of the housework I'd been avoiding. But as soon as they came home I felt miserable again.

I want to go through a teenage phase but I think I have to wait a few years until the kids are older.
