    My parents were away this weekend on business,

    and I had the house to myself. I actually found that I felt more productive, and that I was actually pretty well able to take care of myself, in terms of behavior and keeping my anxiety under control. My problem is, I can't financially support myself. Rent is 800 a month on...

    Twisted *** people. My dads wife more

    than he is. She is very manipulative, always telling me how I need to act and live. I'm irritated. They are both abusive, but damn, I need a break.

    I wish I could just move out

    and live on my own with weekly checks from them or something. There are many reasons for this, but that would take days to explain so i will just give you one example. I told my mom three days ago I wanted to have a sleepover with my friend. I planned out the whole thing with...

    My mom is borderline alcoholic,

    her whole family is. I also think she has a personality disorder from trauma in her young life. She refuses help because nothing's wrong in her head. Everyone else sees it. My stepdad and her fight every night. They scream at each other and it's extremely annoying. They're...

    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.
