Is it better to live in a house worth about £400,000 in a decent area with parents who hate you, or to claim housing benefit and get a place to stay away from my parents? My mum called me a disappointment and an embarrassment earlier this week, and is hardly speaking to me, and I want to move out. I can't help being this way. I'm going to keep trying to get onto my feet with a job etc, but I'd rather do it away from my parents, with only social worker input. I don't really have friends or a partner.
