Advice? - June 28th 2009, 06:55 AM

I'm looking for some suggestions - I'm about to move out of the house after this summer, so my room is being turned into an office. This is fine, but it means we have to get rid of my bed and I'm sleeping in the new "guest" room in an old bed we have.
How do I tell my mom, without telling her why, that I can't sleep in the bed I was molested in?
I could sleep on the couch for a few months but that might look a little odd.
Thanks in advance!
Cat

Maybe try saying that the mattress is different than yours and you would be more comfortable sleeping on the couch because the bed is too lumpy/small/big/soft/hard or whatever. That might get her to let you sleep on the couch or if they havent gotten rid of your bed maybe move it into the guest room? And if its the room itself maybe say that you arent comfortable with the idea that you cant have your room until you leave. Play up the it isnt fair that you have to give up your room a few months early and cant they wait?

Good luck!

Thanks- I guess I can sleep most places since my doesn't stay home at nights, she just comes home in the morning.
It's just that it's a bit overwhelming to come home and be spending so much time in this room. I keep my computer in the "guest room" so it gets to be the middle of the night and I'm exhausted and if I try to lay down it's just a really bad idea. Not an easy thing to rant to someone not online about!

Hey Cat,

That is a very interesting question. I think Nea's suggestion is the best one. If your mom doesn't stay home at night you could sleep on the couch and when she comes home you could say you accidently fell asleep on the couch or if she comes home at a specific time at night you could set you alarm clock and wake up before she gets home.

I hope this helped and good luck!
