Our expert says:
Talk about this, to whatever extent is practical, with your parents. Maybe with your mother, if you're locked into conflict with your dad at present. Ask to be referred to see a GP, making it clear that you're feeling very unhappy and mixed up, and need help in sorting things out. Talk about this frankly with the GP, and ask him / her to refer you to a psychiatrist or psychologist, who can work with you to help you understand this phase of turmoil and to find a happier way of accepting yourself and finding your way in the world.
