  •  Give yourself some credit...you have rational (4+ / 0-)

    reasons for feeling the way you do.  Life has shit all over you, that being said, what can you do.  You either accept it and move on or you don't and let it beat the shit out of you but let yourself recognize that you have indeed gotten some really tough breaks and give yourself credit for coping as well as you have.  The world puts so many false expectations on us that we internalize and lays that groundwork for our negative assessment of ourselves(which often manifests itself in depression) and that assessment works it way into our permanent pysche.  You sound like a truly brave person and you are to be saluted for being able to cope at all.
