    Just wondering if people get the same frosty reception I do?

    So I'm in 1st year Uni and i didn't have enough money to keep my room in my flat over the holidays so had to move myself and all my stuff out.

    Upon returning home there was nobody else in so I put my stuff in the spare bedroom and fell asleep. Clothes and all (had been awake for 3 days!) When I woke up my mum was screaming at me that I should have somehow woken up and and told her before.

    Now apparently I "abuse her" because I was asleep

    Actually this is a long line of mental things. Like this morning she pinched me as a joke but after years of being hit I didn't appreciate it.

    Does anyone else get put in the boxroom and made to feel guilty about any of the food they eat/showers they have/elecetricity they use?

    I'm sure it's not down to money. She has plenty money but just spends it on city breaks for herself and drugs. My birthday presents? A chocolate bar, can of deodrant and a dvd from a charity shop. Please tell me I'm not alone.

    I didn't think you could do that. Haven't you entered a legal contract and you have to pay for what you signed for?

    I generally get a very welcomed reception when I go home. ;d

    My parents never wanted me to leave home so I guess that's probably the reason. At least at home my mum knows I won't get into any trouble so she tries and makes me stay as long as possible lol.

    Nah you can move out over the holidays if you don't want to pay extra.

    If you've saved enough money you could go holiday or spend it with a mate etc.

    Im moving to america for uni in the summer and i dont plan on comming home for 5 years.Might go around europe in holidays with mates but thats it.

    Time for you to let go of them.

    They hold you back tbh.

    Unless they abused you or neglected you, it might be worth remembering that they are two of the minute number of people in the world who will ever love you during your life. You only get one shot at having parents - don't do something you'll regret. Oh and also, they wiped your arse before you could **** in a bowl. Have some respect
