Welcome to Mayo Connect, it is group of caring supportive people. I read that therapy has not helped, but I hope you do not give up on seeking help. Sometimes finding the right therapist takes time.

After reading your post the first thing that comes to mind is your past does not define your future. I Googled that statement and found great article with same tile.
https://www.skilledatlife.com/your-past-does-not-define-you-or-your-future/

The article summarize with following statement:

"Your past, no matter how bad it was, does not define your future. The choices and actions you make today will ultimately define who you will eventually become. Make the decision to learn from your past and apply it in the present so that you can live the life that you were meant to live. You deserve it!"

I hope you continue to seek help.

When in crisis, reach out ! If not sure who to call, see https://www.samhsa.gov/ or call 988 .

Do you have hobbies, exercise or something you enjoy doing that you can do today to make today better then yesterday?

I was helped tremendously by psychodynamic therapy. Any kind of depth therapy would be good. In a way I was partially re-parented. Which is why it is critically important to feel strong trust/good chemistry with your therapist. Don't give up. You matter.
