I could swear my family has no common sense. - June 25th 2009, 10:41 PM

Don't get me wrong, I love my family to death, but MY GOD.
My mom can barely afford to pay a lot of our bills, and we always live pay check to pay check. We spend to much on pointless things and then have barely any money left for the bills that have to payed and the things we actually need. So my mom gets paid today, doesn't have much money, and what do her and my sister spend it on? Fast food. Haven't they ever heard of grocery shopping instead of eating fast food every night? It's one of the reasons I'm an unhealthy weight, I can tell you that. We have nothing to eat in the house, because they buy fast food instead of groceries. So if I do not want to starve, I have to eat unhealthy shit.

And then, to make things even more annoying, I get bitched at for saying "Oh my God you guys, I'm so sick of fast food!" So they blow up at me, and my sister ends up stating that no one gives a shit about me and I can just starve to death. Um, okay? Would be better than listening to her whine 24/7.

I feel like I give up so much that I would rather have for them. I feel like I suffer in silence while they can yell and scream as they please. If I want to complain, to break down every once in awhile, I get told to shut up. I know we all care about each other, but why can't we get along better?

My sister is learning to drive, and she wants to drive EVERYWHERE, which pisses my mom off causing her to say that my sister cannot drive, which pisses my sister off, which pisses my mom off even more, and stressing me out like crazy. Such stupid problems effect all of us so much, and I'm so sick of it. The tension here, the constant yelling over such dumb things, it drives me crazy. I hate it so much, yet there's no stopping it. No matter what I do, my family always blows up. Every second of the day I fear that I'll anger my mom or my sister, so I walk on thin ice. Will asking a simple question get me bitched at? I know it sounds terrible, but sometimes I just can't wait until I'm able to move as far away from them as I can, even though I know I would miss them terribly.

I just needed to rant about this, I guess. I wish my family could get along perfectly... it would make things so much easier for all of us.

A lonely soul in a land of broken hearts

Hello Amanda
I understand you, even though my family is not a big fan of fast food, my boyfriend is. He always wants to go eat fast food.
Then I found this website
Eat This, Not That - The No-Diet Weight Loss Solution From Men's Health

Everytime I go with him I try to order the healthy things.
Good luck with your family, remember they are forever..

Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.

So, we're not in the same situation, but I do think I still know how you feel about your family.
I have the same feeling of wanting to get away from it all, but then there's the good times too, right. The ones when you realize you do love them.
I wish my family could get along too, but I guess families are the way they are, and some of them are quite dysfuntional in their own little ways...

Well, just, if you feel like talking or whatever, feel free to contact me =)
