Default Not just sure

I've unnecessarily embarrassed myself so many times that I curse myself in my own mind every now and then. I'd like to learn to respect myself, but I don't know how. I don't feel anything is worth doing anymore.

Yeah like said my own self worth took a beating from being ghosted and discarded. Can you examine why your self worth is so low?

It's because of my mental health. I always made mistakes interacting with other people. I act stupid, to put it simply. Without the intent of it, of course. It goes back to my childhood.

Ok but how is beating yourself up going to help? I lost my primary relationship and it would be really easy for me to blame myself but how is that going to help me? You see what I am saying?

I don't know I just feel this dread in my body whenever I am reminded how much of a failure I am. My psychiatrist and internist and the other doctor I used to visit as well as my opthalmologist all said I am clear cut for socializing/driving/hanging out with friends/meeting new people/and even getting a doctorate but the problem is my parents are mentally ill and they're just impossible to deal with. They did and still do restrict my social interactions.

Ever since I graduated high school equivalent here, my symptoms have become more obvious.

I don’t know what your dx is but that sounds like the self blame of ptsd. You said your parents are mentally ill, which could def cause trauma. Speaking for myself, my self blame def comes from my mother, so naturally when something goes wrong, I feel responsible.
