PARENTS!!! - May 3rd 2009, 06:07 PM

My parents are driving me insane!!

I got my report card about a week ago, and in my opinion it is very good!! (89% average) I am extremely proud of myself, especially since depression is making it extremely difficult for me to concentrate on anything.

I brought home my report card and showed it to my parents and they got mad at me because my marks weren't high enough. They immediately sent me to my room and told me i was grounded indefinitely. (they expect marks at least over 90% if not higher).

Ever since that day, they have been finding any possible way to insult me, calling me a bitch who only thinks of herself, a horrible daughter and telling me I'm fat and ugly and should be ashamed of myself.

I've had issues with self-confidence for a long time, and their comments are making me hate myself even more. I try to ignore them but it's difficult when that's all I hear from them.

To add to this, my brother is home from University for the summer and they make a point of praising him as often as they can in front of me!

I can't deal with it anymore, I just want it all to end!

Have you thought about telling them about you struggles? Or maybe moving out? Im sure they are only pushing you because they want you to do so well in life. If it is too much I think that you should just tell them that. Or you could maybe tell your brother what is going on. Maybe this happened to him too, maybe he will have some advice for you.

Hope I helped
