Does anyone have advice on how to help my parents understand about my condition and all that goes with it? More recently I've been involving my dad and stepmom on what's going on and the upcoming doc appt I need them at. Before I used to just update them but not really ask them to be there or for anything really. I have a procdeure coming up in a couple weeks and I asked them to be there because I'm going under and I can't take myself and my cousin who usually goes will be out of town. My dad then started to meddle in my situation with the doctor which caused the appt to be pushed two weeks and then was minimalizing my feelings and my brain fog (just overall being rude). I'm so hurt and upset that he's trying to do it his way after I've been doing this for almost two years. I emailed him that I was hurt about how he acted and told him what I needed from him and that if he didn't think he could change his reaction or be more gentle that I would adjust how much I involve him (also threw in a couple chronic pain articles). He didn't respond. Two days later I messaged him if he received it and he said "yup." That's it. He's all upset now because I told him the truth and that what he was doing was hurting me. But he doesn't care probably because I made a conflict when I'm the one that needs help. I'm so frustrated and don't know what else to do. I felt like I did a good job communicating without being angry about it but it still came out as shit. Help please

I'm 21 and just coming out of an extremely physically and mentally abusive relationship. I've also battled drug and alcohol addiction for the past 3 years. This past winter I got my certification for personal training and have so many dreams and opportunities with my career but I've fallen into a depression that I haven't felt in a long time. I miss my abuser. I have no friends and I feel so...
