other advice (post new situation)
I am the only person in my family to go to college at all, am go to school at all with higher than a C average. I have a lot of pressure put on me to be perfect and never make a mistake in this passive aggressive way that makes it hard to bring up anything. We are also very poor so I am paying for everything and though they support my decisions it has been drilled in my head since I was very little to get a high paying job. They want me to be a doctor, and so I'm currently studying to be a nurse, but I don't even know if want to go into the medical field, or any 'prestigious' career. They expect so much from me that I never got to enjoy childhood, or be a teen, experience anything at all really. I know I'm still young but I missed out on fundamental opportunities and fun. All I do is work to pay for bills even though I live at home and I have all the home and family responsibilities because I've grown so fast, and they expect me to make all the right decisions...I don't want to do anything anymore. Help!
