  • how do I fix this.

    im going to be 17 within a month. my relationship with my family right now is really strained. Im uncomftorable with them, i dont feel close at all to them. They all consider me the disappointment child. Even though I havent been diagnosed professionally, i know that im suffering from some form of depression and anxiety. I do admit I act out sometimes, i got into a really bad habit of ignoring school. Ive lost all motivation to keep trying. Everytime i ask for help from my family they always belittle me and tell me to suck up. They insult me and tell me how real life is going to be harder as if thats supposed to make me feel anything other than a strong feeling to not live that long . Ive tried asking for therapists but they always act like it never happened, Im always fighting with my dad, my mom is apathetic and my i feel no closeness with my siblings. Ive been bottling everything up and every cry for help hs been dismissed or ignored. Im not sure i want to be here at all
