i am not allowed to attend any sort of parties, hangouts, get together's and so on without my parents keeping an eye on my actions.. it requires a lot of effort convincing my parents as it requires involvement of my relatives, friends, brothers and sisters... its quite depressing.. i just cannot make commitments to my friends that i will surely come for the party... my parents believe that i will not be able to control my tongue once i see any sugar product in front of me....what should i do to handle this situation??? instead of crying alone that is showing off that i am brave enough to handle this and crying in a closed room without letting others to know about it that i usually do... :-/
I agree. This is no time to talk about communication and understanding how your parents feel. For crying out loud, you're 21, were diagnosed nine to ten years ago and you're handling yourself well. Your parents should have stopped this nonsense years ago. Move out. Leave. You don't deserve this.
thanx a lot...^-^
I think that the contract sound like a good idea. Sit down and set some ground rules and see how it goes. Perhaps it could start with an hour or so and as they feel more comfortable they will let go. I know from a parent of a child that was diagnosed at 4 it is hard. We try to protect our children and then something like this happens and we realized we cant so we try to control what we can. It is a hard thing letting go and I have to work at it every day.(My daughter is going to Horseback riding camp next week. She is eight.) I will be leaving her for a few hours at camp next week and see how she does.
Think of it this way. How would you feel if the shoe was on the other foot. Try hard to understand where they are coming from and then and only then sit down with them and try to get them to understand where you are coming from. They are scared beleive me I know. Just keep trying and remember they love you and only want to do what is best.
Keep that in mind and just keep talking communication is KEY!!!
thank you... :)
