    I am currently studying law at uni and havecome home for the Easter break. I am spending literally every hour I canstudying for exams and so when I can'tclean the house for my parents they have a go at me. They have no concept ofthe amount of work i have to do and how much reading I have. It stresses me out so much. They treat is asjust an excuse so I can sit in my room. They are also very strict asian parents and evolve everything around studies, yet when I am studying I get told I am using it as an excuse? I amreally struggling with my degree and just can't deal with the added stress!

    But then if I didn't come home they would have complained and said I don't care about my family
