I think growing up with an alcoholic father has completely screwed up my life
I am 44 year old man who grew up with an alcoholic father. I left home when I was 22.
I am dealing with issues of low self-worth, anger and sadness which I think are due to being brought up with an alcoholic father.
I cannot process my emotions and it is taking its toll on my relationship with my partner and my seven-year-old daughter. I think all my relationships have ended because I cannot process my emotions. I don’t want to feel like this anymore and I don’t know how to make it stop. It’s ruining my life and the lives of those around me.
I’ve had six spells of therapy and I’m not sure if it has ever helped. It doesn’t feel like it has. I started CBT last week and that has made things worse.
If you can, please help or give me some guidance on how to make these feelings go away.
