Things have been good overall. Work is going well and I’m keeping busy and have lots to do. My weekends have been a lot of fun and show no signs of slowing down until after August. But I’ve been getting more quiet time during the week to compensate and it’s helping. I’ve been ramping up my workouts after a bout of illness. I’m getting back to where I was before and the endorphins are always a plus. I’ve been having a lot of fun with my dance classes. I’ve been attending classes for nearly 5 months and have gotten to know a few of the other regulars at the studio. I’m in the middle of planning out my next adventure this autumn which I’m excited for. There are a lot of awesome things going on in my life right now.
But at home I’m pretty stressed out. Apparently a closed door means I want to be disturbed with questions. And there’s more to it than just that. I feel claustrophobic and dread going home sometimes. Despite the fact that it’s my own place.
She’s younger than I am. I totally understand living on your own can be scary. It takes time to figure things out. Even I don’t have everything figured out, that’s life. But she’s extremely clingy, copies everything I do, and wants to spend every waking moment with me. It’s stifling. We’re stuck together for the foreseeable future and I’m not sure if anything is going to change. I’m willing to talk but she soon forgets what we’ve discussed and we’re back to square one. It feels like she’s not listening at all.
Any advice or ideas to help me out?
