    I'm talking about programmes I dislike and I'm saying "I can't stand soaps. I hate to involve myself in the characters' problems- I have enough of my own!"

    I have: Je ne supporte pas les feuilletons. Je déteste m'impliquer dans les problèmes des personnages- j'en ai assez de mes propres!"

    Is this correct?

    Looks fine to me, though I think I'd changed "j'en ai assez de mes propres" to "j'en ai assez moi-même" because "I have enough of my own!" is an Anglicism and I can't imagine it translates well that way

    The bold part doesn't make sense to me. The rest is fine.

    You could say "[...] les problemes des personages - j'en ai déja asser" because you're still refering to the "problemes".
