    ok, i feel as if i am about to cry. My childhood was the same way. my mother was a druggie and my father, well he was beaten multiple times a day, and i spent my days hiding from my mom behind the refrigerator. Before i turned 9 these memories haunted me, i couldn't make friends and i was scared of everyone. i was severely claustrophobic and was very depressed. then one day i just couldn't take it anymore, i freaked on my teacher and ended up in the guidance counselors office. From that point on my life was changed, i made friends and i currently live with my dad and visit my mom (who got herself together) regularly. you need to see someone, at first its going to be uncomfortable, but if i had never been, the counselor said i would definitely be suicidal. i hope i helped. p.s. the whole reason i created an account was to answer this question
