tw/negative home life/unhealthy living . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . tell me.. those who grew up with hoarding/trash and the “i don’t know how to communicate, so here let me buy you something” parents, does it ever get better? i really want to get away from my house so bad it’s so stressful. i love my parents, but their living habits make me so disgusted and repulsed and i can’t do anything about it. i’ve started to become bitter. i have stable income but all the housing around me is so expensive and i have 2 cats. i want to live with my s/o in their town that’s 30 mins away (we also work together) but housing is just too much right now.. i don’t know what to do. my only safe space is my room and it’s because i can control how messy/clean it is. there’s constantly dog poop and pee on the floor in the living room, kitchen, or my parents room, flies are everywhere, we finally got ahold of our mice problem that we’ve had for four years, we have so much moisture in our basement that we have fungus growing on our furniture. it’s just disgusting. i don’t know what to do. i’ve tried cleaning the house for them but all i get is a verbal “thank you” and no maintenance so it goes back to the same dirty hoarder house in under 3 days. i want to be on my own so bad but i know i’m not ready for thr financial responsibility and the emotional state i might be in when i’m finally on my own. i’m so stuck. i hate it.

      Personally I didn't have those parents so I don't know anything about but I do understand wanting out but not feeling ready. If you ever need to talk I am here
