I am 30 years old and I hate living with my mom and stepfather they treat me like I am 5 freakin years old.

my mom monitors my money and only lets my buy approved things. I am not allowed to buy a car even though I have the money saved. I am not allowed to go to the Cubbard and grab my own food, I have to ask them to grab it for me. After I take the day’s medicine my mom hides the rest until the next day. I talk with my father but he is not allowed to send me things in the mail. I am not allowed to carry the mail to the house. I am only allowed to have two cups of coffee a day and my stepfather has insulted me even though he just says he is joking.


every damn week there is a new restriction on me. I am starting to hate my life.

anyone else living at home with schizophrenia treated this way?

It sounds like your parents are going overboard in what they think will help or protect you. I would let them know that you are feeling discouraged and stifled. I live at home with my parents but they don’t stifle me in that way. I do have to sort of follow their schedule rather than my own schedule. That gets tiring. I think we are both really lucky to have such caring and supportive parents. But we have to make sure that it’s a partnership and not a dictatorship. If you have qualms with the situation with your parents I wouldn’t hesitate to let them know.
