So I have been through this before by strangers, and my parents are a little bit retarded unfortunately so they are using this against me. What should I do? And I understand they are not parents, but everyone is in similar situations how would you respond to this kind of situation. I think my parents are the types that if someone told them "Kill your own children", they would. They just have that personality, and they never take responsibility for their actions, they are only afraid of "getting caught" and always listening to those conspiracy theories. It's really not helping me at all, and they are trying to isolate me from the rest of the world. They always threaten us, but what kind of parent does this? Their own parents were so much better, so what is these people's excuse? Yet they are so fake in public "Oh I care for my children", you don't even know whether they are dead or alive and get happy, I mean my dad sent me the text to incriminate when I nearly got raped by a police officer, simply because he had bruised me as a child and child protective services had been called as a teacher had noticed these bruises, even if I had lied to protect him. They never forget and he is unforgiving towards me, even if he was out of line for doing that. It's just a bit retarded that they still think it is right to treat people that way. And because I am a hsp and not mentally ill then it is because THEY are great parents, as everyone thinks so and keeps telling them how we are bad and they are good, because we are successful and they just can't stand it. So yes having a histrionic and a ppd parent with psychopathic features isn't the best as everyone will take advantage of you, so yes, nevertheless we must thrive on our own and that I know, and I am not scared of that, I just worry for my health sometimes, mental and physical as I don't think they understand the impact of their behaviours, or pretend they don't understand as they once more lack the empathy to understand it. Like, ok I didn't get mentally ill, but it did impact my life particularly my physical health, as it is wrong, and I was then stalked and harassed by other people while I was living at own. People who were psychopathic and who were chasing after me because I was not interested in them and didn't want to be subjected to their abuse instead for a change and because I couldn't build a support network, since my parents never allowed me to have a support network and isolated me all the time, to control me, and they still do this to this day.
