    If not then yeah it must be horribly frustrating for you to see his behaviour and for your parents to relent to it. Wouldn't happen with my kids tbh, I worry about that style of parenting as when the "child" finally goes out into the real world they can often find it horribly hard to cope :(
    He was diagnosed with depression a few years back, but tbh I don't see that as an excuse at all, I was also diagnosed with depression 5 or 6 years ago but never did/have I spoken to my parents the way he does, even when I was in a bad place when I was a teen. I know people deal with depression in different ways, but to treat your parents like a piece of dog poo that you've trodden in is just unacceptable to me.

    It doesn't excuse it but it may be an underlying link as to why he's behaving the way he is. Was just a thought, maybe whatever medication/support he's getting (if any) for that isn't working?

    I don't think he's even taking it anymore, though tbh he was probably worse when he was! I will admit his moods seem to have improved slightly, he's not permanently sulking/stroppy, which is good, but I'd like it even more if his attitude towards the parents improved too. Hopefully given time he will realise how he's been behaving has been unacceptable.

    I think a lot of people struggle to appreciate their parents until they're truly away from home, like when I moved out for uni I moved out and I won't be going back unless I have to so I'm a lot less reliant on my parent's than other people I know and definitely get on with them better and appreciate them more now than I did when I was still at home.
    (although I'm not totally independent, I do still rely on them to some degree but a much lesser one than most of my friends)

    So glad I pushed myself tonight and went for a run. Made me realise how shockinly unfit i've let myself get, but still, i'm determined to keep it up now.
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    Im starting to think i pointed the blame at the wrong person in the old house.
    Im on my own all weekend so i decided to do a quick clean of the hall/living room and kitchen. One of the girls has only been living with us a week so is still a bit cautious and the other is one i lived with in the old house. How is the house is soo dirty after a month!?




    Have i gone mad? Im afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But i'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.

    I'd love to learn to play the hammered dulcimer.
