Life at home

I'm feeling angry, irritated and resentful.


I've been helping, well trying to help someone with tidying all day. So I've been told what to do all day, had to bite my tongue when things don't seem logical to me, ignore my own feelings, even basic ones such as hunger and boredom.

My 13yr old daughter has just been diagnosed with being on the spectrum. Aways thought she behaved differently but ASD was ruled out. Thought she was just rude and immature. Need advice on dealing with rudeness and arguments.very stressful!!!!!

I had to make a choice between running away, killing myself or going home.


I went home.


My parents response immediately tells me I made the wrong choice.


Nobody understands or cares what I think or how I feel, and so I just end up disappointing them.

Keeping my teenager busy is exhausting!

Wed 22 Apr 2015 10:56pm

I am exhausted trying to keep my 13 year old daughter occupied, it's like having a toddler again, she follows me around wanting to "do something" all the time.  She has not had a diagnosis but I suspect she is on the spectrum.  She has a SEN and only attends tution for an hour a day at a private educational provision.  I woner if there is anyone else out there in a similar position to me?  Would love to chat x

Need to move out

Tue 21 Apr 2015 6:55am

I am so upset and frustrated and I hate my mum right now and feel very upset. I got caught out lying and now I have nowhere to hide because I have to live in this stupid house and if they weren't so nosy and intrusive I wouldn't have had to lie in the first place if they could keep their noses out. I am so upset and angry because it is their fault I had to lie. I am waiting for a girl to move out of a flat with support but she is taking so long to find somewhere to move to I am feeling very angry towards her too because I JUST WANT TO GET OUT.'s picture
