So i didn't really know where this topic fit in so i figured i'd put it here. I don't know what to say really except that i hate living at home. I used to live with my whole family, and my mum would keep our flat tidy because my grandmother would be around to inspect it (as she lived next door). Then my mother and i moved into a new house, away from my grandmother, with her boyfriend. Since then i've been living in a shit hole (sorry for the language) She recently got a new puppy, cos one of our two dogs died. She has failed to toilet train it and, despite numerous promises to "get around to it", doesn't even seem bothered about training her. So the house STINKS of shit and wee, and everytime i leave the comfort of my room i stand in shit or wee. Then there's the oven, the microwave which she NEVER cleans so are caked in filth, cat and dog hair and lord knows what else. Don't even go into the bathroom, it's vile. I do my best, i clean the oven and microwave once a month, and clean the bathroom once a week. But i'm a university student. I've been clearing up after her for too long, i want to go out and live my life, party and i'd like to keep on top of my school work. Recently, the stress of living in such a dump has been making me ill. Each day i wake up wondering what mess awaits me downstairs, and when i think about i feel sick for hours. I dont want to go on living in this squalor. But i dont know what i can do about it Meh, i dunno what i hope to achieve by posting this. Advice? Comfort? I don't know. There ya go.
