your behavior is very self-destructive, and i fear for you. but ultimately, you will not get better unless you want to.

i am almost at a loss of what to say because it seems like you are completely cognisant of the events taking place and how they hurt you, yet you continue. sounds like an addiction if i've ever heard of one. fortunately you have a good support structure it seems. you just have to reach out. For now they are just waiting, patiently and fearfully.

maybe there are some triggers, like your dad that you get exposed to frequently? maybe you should try to avoid things like this, and focus on yourself.

good luck.
