    My boyfriend doesn't have a home

    my boyfriend is 18 and so am I. He's told me and I have seen for a fact that he has not had his own room or even a bed! Or even a mattress! To sleep on for over 4 years. Since he was 14.

Please somebody help. What can he...

    Trying to let go

    It's been about 3 months since I've seen my daughter and my grandkids.  I keep wondering when this will be over, the waiting and waiting to see them.  It is not my choice, but my daughter's, to have no contact.  Trying to let go and accept what is is very difficult for me to do.  And as each day passes, it is another day I miss from my 1-year-old granddaughter's development.  I hope she will...

    Missing my daughter & grandkids

    I just joined today.  Two months ago my daughter, who is 24, and I had an issue and she hasn't spoken with me since.  I have two grandchildren and she promised me that no matter what, she would always allow me visits with them.  However, she has gone back on her word and I haven't seen them for 2+ months, even after repeated requests.  I am heartbroken and cry every day over missing them. My...

    Living with a narcissist: advice?

    Hello. I live with a very narcissistic relative and, no, I can't leave. I'm stuck and it's causing me a lot of suffering. They are the sort of person for whom you can do no right, but if you admit this no, no, no they LOVE you! How could you think that way?Anyway, her behavior is out of control. Yesterday, she nearly crashed her car into another because, in her opinion they ought to have read the...
