Hello, I'm a 43 year old woman, who has clinical depression and self harms. I am house bound. I live at home with my autistic son husband and daughter. My daughter has just turned 19 has a part time job. And goes to college.

My daughter told us yesterday she wants to move out, which both my husband and I think is a really bad idea. 1 she cannot afford too and 2 she thinks she can get a part time job as well as go to college and do her other job.she has a car that is a financial debt as well.

We all agreed she would stay at home til here college finished and then she. Would move out

    Continued.
    My husband who is my carer is taking his moods out on me, he is worried about our money and about our daughter. I feel so low and upset and I'm not coping at all.

    Welcome to TheSite though it is primarily for 16 to 25 year olds, I will PM you a website who would best be able to help you further.

    ETA as I am unable to PM you I see, visiting Psych Central may be of great help: http://forums.psychcentral.com/

    Hi Crystalstar,

    I'm really sorry to hear about what you're going through and that you're on the receiving end of your husbands moods. It's natural to be concerned about your daughter moving out too. You may want to direct her to some of our info on leaving home and renting that may help her to make an informed decision, for example this article on bills: http://www.thesite.org/housing/renting/types-of-household-bills-7904.html

    As AccessDenied says, this site is a youth site aimed at 16-25s so you may be better off seeking support elsewhere.

    Supportline offer confidential emotional support via telephone or email.

    FamilyLives also provide advice and support: http://www.familylives.org.uk/ You can contact them via their helpline or via Skype.

    Wishing you all the best :)
