I need to get away from my family.
I don’t hate my family, just… they don’t really accept me. They like seeing me as a normal teenager, if a big reclusive, and prefer to just not acknowledge my… issues. They’re still baffled when I have memory problems, can’t understand when I’m afraid to do things, and shout at me when I try to talk about my problems to other people. Sometimes I think they feel threatened by me, like my having problems makes them bad parents. It’s sad because most of the time they’re wonderful, kind, loving people, and I would love to be able to share my real self with them. But they don’t want that.
(If you must know what problems these are that I mention, see some of my other posts.)
Next year I’m moving away to University, but that still means another whole year I’m stuck with them. I’m starting a job this week and trying to get out more, but in my day-to-day life is there a way to spend less time around them?
