Thanks for sharing your story. I hope you won't be mad at yourself for long--it's certainly not your fault. An upbringing like that would have not only hurt you deeply, but also have prevented you from seeking help--so in reaching the decision to go for therapy, you had a double whammy to overcome. Don't be too hard on yourself for something that took more strength, courage and character than you probably realize.
