    they constantly ignore me

    when I share my feelings and if they don't ignore me they pretty much tell me I am stupid to feel that way. they also completely disregard my fears. It's mostly my dad who does this but since my mom is greatly influenced by my father she tends to act like him. the worse days are...

    Don't Laugh...

    I come from a *very* strict conservative Christian family.  I mean we are a notch and a half below Amish.  To make matters worse, my parents (especially my mom) have a Southern black upbringing that is filled with what I consider some pretty lame and useless traditions...

    Hate is such a strong word.

    I don't hate living with my parents it's just annoying sometimes. I want to have friends over when I want to. Be able to walk around naked if I want ( probably wouldn't). I just want to have the freedom to go and come as I please without the questions or intrusions.
