People keep telling me do what's best for me, but idk what's best. Once you are homeless, is life over? I need to get out of my house. My parents pump me full of meds that are bad for my mental health, force me out of having fun, and take away from my ability to make my own decisions because "they know what's best". All I've ever wanted is some independence; a child hood dream that never faded. We fight all the time. I need to get out, but I feel trapped as fuck and they tell me I'll never make it because I still have two years of college left. I am 19, btw.

there are jobs available that can take you away from the situation you are in and give you enough money to live on your own
get a full time job, rent a cheapo apartment somewhere and learn to survive on your own. Then cut off all ties with your toxic parents. you'll be surprised at how rewarding a new fresh start is. Difficult and tumultuous but rewarding
You're a schizophrenic who needs to stay on your meds.
Why are they giving you these meds?
I find it hard to believe that your parents are drugging you just to make you unhappy, and the advice you need changes a lot if you have some sort of mental illness.
The odds that your parents are maliciously feeding you drugs just to fuck with your head is pretty low. The more likely scenario is that you need meds to keep your issues from becoming a problem. You're either bipolar, depressed, schizophrenic, some shit like that.
Sometimes you have to go with the lesser of two evils. The rational decision is to choose a foggy brain over a crazy brain. Foggy brain's have a lower chance of hurting themselves, or other people.
maybe it's a common side effect?
I know they mean the best. but I want the excitement back in life. I want joy and sex (zoloft kills libido) and friends and I want to do good in work
This is fucking retarded.
>Is all hope lost?
No. You can always be hopeful for the future, considering people have become homeless and managed to put their lives back together afterwards, of course not. But you will probably make your life worse if you decide to a) stop taking meds and b) decide that sleeping outdoors with no source of food, water, income etc. is a genuine option worth considering.
>I want friends, excitement, etc.
See a therapist. You're asking for answers from a board filled with strangers who don't know you from a bar of soap. You won't get answers from a therapist in one or two questions, let alone a bunch of fucking NEETS on some shitty website.
If people don't want to take meds, they can just fake it and spit them out later, or worst case scenario for tongue checks, puke them up.
The fact that you don't mention lying about taking the meds as an option suggests to me that they can tell when you're not on meds, which means you sperg the fuck out.
i dont sperg out im just afraid of getting caught and getting kicked out. i know it sounds like i want to leave but bein homeless is still scary. sorry for bad grammar and spelling its 3:16 here
I'm going in for a second opinion but I think she'll tell me to get off of them. My parents would not agree with that. I have a therapist and that's what she recommended. also positive thinking, nutrition and "fake it till you make it"
