    Hey guys.
    So I'm into final year studying law at uni at a local uni and live at home. The downside of this is that I have to share a room with my 40 year old sister. I have done for 7 years and now at the age of 21, I'm getting sick of it. She is continuously looking at houses to buy and recently she put an offer on a house but her mortgage fell through.
    Since then, I'm feeling so resentful and bitter towards her.

    She is depressed and is sensitive to anything I say to her. I feel so down about this and I don't want it to affect my studies! I know this situation is not normal. After my exams, things have to change as I can't cope anymore, physically and mentally.

    I considered asking her to rent a place but by the time she does, she will moving in the important weeks of revision. Does any one have any advice? Maybe how I can not let this affect me and my mind in the next2 months? I'm just so stuck and feel helpless

    Thanks for reading.

    Just think that in the next few months it will be over (uni ) and then you could look for somewhere else to live or why don't you ask if she will rent a place rather than buying it. I know people who rented somewhere for a while till they found somewhere more permanent.
