I have, for some reason, the inability to tolerate my parents affection, speech, and actions. I\'m 18 and moved in with another family member a couple months ago to live closer to school. My family has always been dysfunctional and uncommunicative and for the past year I really felt that. And after moving out of my parents house, it just feels so much better. It\'s quieter and probably less stressful too. I\'ve also barely seen my parents since I\'ve moved out as well. Honestly, I like it better that way. I admit, I really don\'t miss them and seeing them can kind of suck. I don\'t want to sound rude or anything but reading their emails and talking to them on the phone makes my stomach flip, like I wish they wouldn\'t say certain things to me; makes me feel queasy, uncomfortable. I just wonder if they actually miss me or if it\'s a front because feelings.. not returned at this point.

Sometimes you need that time away from your parents. Especially at the age you're at. It's the age where we typically go to college, and get away for a few years to learn and become an adult. Things will be different in a few years, but the transition of your being their kid living under their roof to you being an adult can be a big adjustment for them. Once they see that, they will start treating your differently.You can stay connected to them, but just be short and say you're busy but that you're thinking of them.
