I am living at home with a parent who constantly tells me that I am a burden on him. I desperately want to get away but i cant afford to move out. I am still unemployed which makes me feel like i have no stability in my life. I have tried to talk about it to other people, but all i am told is that it is a normal part of adult relationships and that i should just laugh it off. I need help to find a way to cope because the constant pressure is driving me crazy. I do not ever ask my parent for money and i cook and i make sure that i keep on top of all the housework.
i am also afraid to move out because i have recently lost my mother and i know that my father is depressed. however, i am struggling with dealing with him because he picks a fight and then acts as if nothing has happened. i am constantly on an emotional roller coaster. he refuses to get help for his depression and he sometimes acts like 5 year old. i need advice on how to cope. has anyone dealt with something like this too??
