This is me

This is my first post I was finally diagnosed with depression and GAD this past year after 10 years of a struggle, yet I still have a lot of hurdles to over come.
I'm 23year old women with a 6 year old son, from the outside my life looks perfect easy job behaved child amazing partner who works so hard yet I still haven't felt any different if not worse than I did before.
I had a good childhood at the start I had a mum, dad and younger brother. Problems started when I was abused by a trusted family member at the age of 6 and that went on till the age 10 nobody knows to this day about any of that, this is something I choose myself not to act upon.
At age 10 I caught my father cheating on my mum so explaining to her what I knew was really tough experience, I was then left to look after my mother who was severely depressed at the time and my 7 year old brother.
Things started to look up when my mother met her now husband until all the fights started and I got stuck in the middle everytime, then found out at age 16 I was pregnant the stress at home I decided to walk out from n stayed with my nan who has done so much for me I love her to pieces id be lost without her.
That is a small window into my life, everyday is a struggle getting up doing simple things I'm exhugsted all the time I feel empty lost confused also the anxiety has cost me any social life what's so ever I can't handle crowds, new places or new people. I've just started CBT recently and there's this small part of me that sees that glimmer of light I hope to be rid of this one day and experience life without it all.
