    Try talking to her. Choose a time when she's calm and sit down and explain how you feel. Tell her you're trying (I know what your problem is from another thread and completely sympathise...) but it will take some time and you need support or it will take longer. Don't shout. Reason with her. And try and show some activity - even a small thing a day, perhaps looking through the paper at jobs or something. Anything so she REALISES you're trying.

    Cool cheers, Ive just had a thought I could start voluntary work, Ive just rang up about it, that might shut them up for so long lol.

    Are all families like this though? I mean do any of you feel more pressure cause your brother/sister is a doctor or something? Im sure it happens loads.
