I am desperate for advice. I do not know how to deal with my family. I need to wear headphones constantly because they are very loud and obnoxious. I ask them, politely and gently if they can lower their voices while on the phone, or when company is over, instead of complying, I get told that I am being rude. So that doesn’t work. The sound of my mothers voice and family for that matter makes me wince. I dislike family dinners and do my hardest to avoid them because they are very nosy, loud and it is just too much for me to handle. I can’t study for my course as well, the library closes at a specific time as well does the coffee shop..I can only study at midnight but even than my mother will wake up and talk on the phone – very loudly. I don’t attend anywhere with my family because the last time I did, I received a migraine from all the loud music, loud people and just way too much happening around that I couldn’t focus. I am 18 years old and I can’t move out either, it’s a rule that you can only move out after university/college and you’ve obtained a stable job.
Please, advice would be nice.
