    All they do is yell at me

    and say how lazy I am They don't understand that I have depression and anxiety and it is infuriating. All they do is berate me and it is really saddening.

    I love my mom, and my step dad is a cool guy,

    but I wish I could move out. My financial situation makes that impossible though. After student loans and other bills I have almost no money left. Paying rent would simply be impossible.

    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.
