What do you do when one of your family members is quite a significant trigger to your depression?
I live with my sister after my mum and dad seperated and of course I'm grateful she took me under her wing and is looking after me, but at the same time she treats me with upmost disrespect. I've never felt so demoralised sometimes by the way her words affect me. My sister isn't violent but she's 'vile' verbally. It's hard because she's family and I'm living in her home rent free, but does that give her the right to treat me how she does?
I'm currently employed part time and inbetween work I clean the house as my 'board payment' if you like, and she'll get in from work around 3pm and no matter what she'll find something I haven't done right, if she has anything positive to say (which is very rarely) it'll quickly be followed by something negative. It gets to the point where I begin self loathing and then come the suicidal thoughts. I feel like there's weights pushing down on my body.
How can I tell her?
