This is depressing. I went to a advice forum about my problem and all the responses I got were "LOL Troll".I think you guys will make fun of me too. Instead on focusing on my problem these people were completely threw off that I'm 18 year old girl and sleep in my parents closet. Why won't people believe there are huge closets in this world that can fit a cabinet, twin bed, and TV? I admit my post was a little incoherent, that's because I was troubled. I don't think there it's any thing weird. My brothers are 31 and 29 and they live at home. It's part of our culture, we help each other. I NEED my family. I don't have any friends. I'm going into a nursing program and all I'm thinking is that "Two more years, Two more years" and I'll be free. But my parents wants me to buy a house when I'm done and for me to live with them. In the closet I can hear my parents. My dad is having an affair. Financial and personal problems. They think that I don't hear them, but I do. It's been troubling me for months. We're moving and my parents want me to sleep in the same room as them. I argued that I rather sleep in the living room. Then my dad has that look in his eye, the "I'm going to take my shoe off and beat you" kind of look then I shut up. I'm too afraid to speak up because I think of my dad still hitting me. He did a couple months ago when I made a comment about nursing school. Other than that he's a really nice person. I don't know how to speak up to them.
