    Attachment Issues

    I'm nearly 40 this year, and for most of my life, I can remember having anxiety and depression. I grew up with my grandparents in the Philippines. My mum left me when I was two. I have never met my biological father, apparently, he has passed on. I am a mother of 3 girls.
    Last year I attempted suicide, due to my relationship breakdown. It wasn't my first time. I am currently on 30mg escitalopram. I constantly have this need to be loved, and to please people around me. It doesn't matter how bad they treat me. It makes me feel like I can't cope if they leave. For the past few weeks, I go through periods where I can't get out of bed and cry all the time and then there are times where I'm not sleeping and very much hyperactive. I have recently gotten back with my ex. I'm doing what I was doing before, constantly tending to him.

    How do I overcome this need to feel wanted and loved?
    How do I stop myself from feeling worthless?
