Do you enjoy a full house? Where are you from?
I’m in New Zealand. Because we all work different hours/are on different schedules etc it never really feels like the house is full 😊. I really like my own space and alone time, but even with this many people around I get it.
Get what? Lol
You’ll find someone! Don’t worry. I think everyone feels like that at some point
Lol thank you!
I think 18/19 is a bit young lol but some people do manage it
It's a lit young for these days when the younger generation is coddled by their parents. It takes them longer to grow up and mature. I was on my own, with a car, a job, going to college, all at 18.
Big girl pants? If that was directed at me, I’m already moved out. I just wanted to hear ppls opinions
I like this answer
@Reach500 Thanks! If it wasn't for me being here, mom would've been forced to spend her last few years in a nursing home! My aunt, who lived down the street from me, was tricked into going to a home by her own kids! She was in her late `90's and even though she had macular degeneration, she'd never been in a hospital a day in her life and still got around like a teenager!! I'm two feet taller than she was and tend to walk fast and I could barely keep up with her!! she spent her last two or 3 years in the home and died weeks before she turned 100!! Had her damn kids just let her stay in her house, she might STILL be alive and kicking today!! when she went in, she looked the same as I'd always remembered her! She'd hardly changed at all in the previous 50-some years! By the time she died, she looked like SHIT!!! Her hair was all frizzy and sticking out on end, she looked like she'd been run through the ringer several times over and they had tubes in her nose!!! Awful, just awful!!!
It's great that you took care of your parents. I want to take care of mine too when they get older. It does seem like people deteriorate faster in hospitals/nursing homes though
@Reach500 Partly because the people that work there are assholes! A few months before mom died, I was helping her and tore my bicep. They put her in a home for 5 days hoping that'd be enough time for my arm to heal (it's been over 3.5 years and it's still not back to normal). While she was in the home, she asked a nurse for help and either didn't get it or it took them a LONG time to take care of her! She told her sister and SHE bitched out the staff for not doing their job and, ever since then, they treated mom like shit!! If she asked them to help her go to the bathroom, they'd let her stay in bed for an hour or two before they'd help her!! She was SO glad to get back home!!
Sadly, it has become a habit to DUMP them in 'retirement homes' instead.
@andreasderjuengere nope not for me. My mother is priceless to me.
Good to hear that :)
