    I really want to go to University (which would be a triumph in itself) and just leave my old life behind. I want to have plastic surgery (only one procedure) to fix what's wrong with me, change my name, go to University and never see them again; alas this is never to be. Once changing my name I'd have to provided evidence of my name change because school's references would be for another person, and A Level certificates also. I'll never get a job straight out of uni so will have to go back and live with them and I'll end up stuck there forever more.

    Part of me thinks it's somewhat my right to do what I like and just live my own life in whatever way I want to, but the larger half tells me that I should remain unhappy and in their life because it's almost my duty.

    What do you think about the second paragraph and what could I do to overcome the things in the first?

    That's immaterial, but for everything they've done to me over the years; bullying both physically and mentally, but more mentally. That's just the tip of the iceberg.

    You don't need to change your name, and you wont have to move back in with them after uni. I left home at 16 for similar reasons to yours, couch surfed for a while with friends and ending up living with my girlfriend at the time and paying her parents rent with the part time job I had.

    When I got to uni I found jobs as soon as I could, got two and I pay for myself completely (apart from the loan), no grants and no parental interference. I live in Bristol where i'm at uni all year round and only go back to Hampshire to visit old friends. After uni I'll stay in bristol working minimum wage until I get enough to go travelling and find another job.

    If you really apply yourself its do-able, anyone can get a minumum wage job, I handed round 340 CVs in total in the space of two weeks and I got two replys, its just about determination.

    Good luck!

    University is a good oppitunity to live your own life.
    It's also a mental break being so far away and having limited contact. It really has been a relief.
    Just do what i did, move 300 miles away for Uni. Only contact is phone calls and you can turn your phone off.

    As for changing your name, not sure it's that complicated. Especially if you're 18. I've had my name changed quite a few time with ease...but then I was in refuges due to an abusive parent, so was probably much easier at the time.
