My name is emoot and I'm a graphic artist..... I am married and I don't have kids yet, either.
You sound like an artist to me. (; No, really, I mean I think it is very typical for creative types and it even says it somewhere... that fours need purpose/meaning in their jobs. We aren't driven by money, prestige(well maybe secretly), or the pure joy of working..... nope, we gotta have a passion to get it out of us. Granted, the money doesn't hurt....but I digress. (;
For a lot of us, that passion is expressing ourselves in our art. I think that if your mother and grandmother were artists...then of course you've got some artistic genes (talent).... I think you need to take them out for a spin. No big pressure but ...... what are you studying in school?
I'd suggest taking an art class if you aren't already.
Sorry, about your situation with your Dad and your real mom...... Even though there are plenty of people out there with bigger, more disasterous lives... your feelings are still valid on the pain you experienced in childhood...... because, you know, we are all made differently and affected differently. What books have you read that have helped you cope?
Talking about your pain is very healthy, even if you do have to write it on a message board. You know, because it is a support thing.
I could write a lot more, but I don't want to overwhelm you with an incredibly long post.... so I will stop for now.
