  1. You aren't alone. I didn't have a childhood either thanks to my parents, and believe me, there are a LOT of awful parents out there. It's heartbreaking, but it's true. So there are a lot of us who have learned to find our own way in this world. You can be okay tho. Do not let them, or who they are, define YOU. If you aren't already doing so but are able to do so, I suggest a talk therapist/counselor on a regular basis to help you sort through what goes on in your life and in your head. If there are adults other than your parents that you can depend upon, do so. Those bonds will mean so much to you throughout your life - even if they are not blood related. Do what you can for your lil bro, but focus on your future too. Stay positive, it won't always be easy, but don't let yourself wallow. Life can be amazing even if you've had a bad start with rotten parents, I know this from my own experience. In all sincerity, I send you love and peace, and from the bottom of my heart I'm sorry that you got a crap start in life. *hugs*
