Okay. So, I'm pretty unhappy with my girlfriend. In college, but currently living with one parent (can't afford an apartment yet).
Here's the problem: I am and she is emotionally attached to each other. AKA, I know I'll regret breaking up with her minutes after, no matter how unhappy I am. And I know she's going to sob and it'll make me feel like shit.
But, the real reason why I feel like I can't break up with her is because our lives are too intertwined. She works for my mom. My mom loves her, probably more than she loves me. (She always wanted a daughter and treats her like so). Her parents love me, and all of her siblings love me. And they're all I talk to, and yeah.
The downside is that she's emotionally abusive and I was very popular but now I have no friends because I've effectively been isolated. I see no one but my girlfriend, my mom, and her family, ever. I hate it, because I'm a social person, or I try to be. I have the happiest moments with my girlfriend (of over 1 year) but those only last a few hours. I feel like there should be more. Sometimes I feel like this is how life is, whether I like it or not. I love her though, for the happy moments.
What do I do? How do I do it?

I apologize for the wall of text, I sorta need to vent.
When you guys were younger were you ever embarrassed by your personal life? Stuff like who your parents were, what they did, your financial stability, etc. And if you were, how did you get through it?
When I was younger I was absolutely terrified if my peers ever found out my personal life. I'll green text it.
>parents didn't work
>didn't have a car
>dad was older than most other dads
That's basically it. My parents never really worked so when somebody asked me "What do you're parents do? I usually blew it off by jokingly answering. Which worked most of the time. I was even embarrassed to be seen around them. I did my best to attempt to not be around them as possible. I love them a lot, especially my dad, but I just did not want to be seen with them. I didn't want my peers to know who they were either.
Since we never had a car we always took the bus or occasionally got a ride from some friends. I hated it, In middle school I had to wait at the bus stop while all my other friends were in their cars passing by me.
To get around questions about my personal life, I lied, lied, and lied. I buried my lies with more lies, I didn't like doing it but at the time it had to be done. Here's an example
>be at bus stop with friend from school
>see dad, talk to him for about a minute, then go back to friend
>"Do you know that guy?"
>"Who is he?"
>"What were you talking about?"
>"I borrowed his lawn mower and he wants it back."
>ended with him asking more questions and me lying more
I hate to sound like a whining bitch, but you get the point I guess. I know these problems were petty at best. I know I should have been happy I had parents who weren't dead, And I really was. I am also aware that there are far more worst things than my first world problems. I would just like to know if anybody experienced the same and I would like to here their story.

I'm 22, female, and have started getting grey hairs.
I've found one or two on occasion (months apart) for years, but now it's obvious to others.
They're all around the front of my head, in my fringe, bangs etc. (also, my pubes are getting grey/white hairs now too)
How much of a problem will this be with finding a husband in a few years? Also, how uncommon is this? It makes me feel old, but mostly it just makes me feel weird. You can't dye pubes, and I don't want guys to freak out. I already look really ambiguous age-wise and this will just make people think I'm actually older than I am.

Hey, /adv/ I have a bunch of problems that relate to each other and it's kind of slowly draining me. Background: prenursing, commute an hour every day to class, may have anxiety, not professionally diagnosed but I plan to talk it out with some counselors before seeing some kind of doc. Sorry for the wall of text.
>tl;dr - really rough start in the semester, how do I cope?
Problem 1: I'm taking two core science classes this fall semester for pre nursing - general microbio (plus a lab) and general physiology (no lab). How do I balance out studying between all three of these? I like doing a routine where I study a little bit each day throughout the semester. Since I commute early in the morning and in the mid afternoon I get p tired and I'm not in the mood to study. I would definitely study on campus but by the time I go home I feel like everything I've learned just vanished.
Problem 2: For my physiology lab, I had to take a review quiz online. I did the review, put all my answers in. But by the time the timer ran out the campus' internet connection lagged so much that I couldn't refresh the page. Later on, I checked my grade and I got a 0/30. I emailed the professor and she replied saying that none of my answers went through. I'm only allowed to take the quiz once (no redos) but since there was some server crash I should be allowed another go, right?
Problem 3: I don't know if I have anxiety for sure, but I wouldn't be surprised if I were to look at my family history. But let's say I do - how do I cope with it?

I dated my ex for about two years although even after we broke up we were still really good friends and had a friends with benefits type of relationship. This year, two of my friends, ex, and I are living in an apartment together. My ex jokingly said he wanted to sleep with one of my friends but I only thought he was just joking. Before my other friend and I moved in to the apartment he and my friend hooked up and started to become much much. They tried to hide it from me, but they did a really bad job. That friend is my best friend and I thought she would at least have the decency to tell my ex that she wouldn't sleep with him let alone even start dating him. I was even going to stop the friends with benefits relationship with my ex so we could all be good friends in the apartment at the same level to avoid awkwardness. I told my ex and friend that I feel uncomfortable with them being together but I wish I could just tell them to stop completely. I mean, it's really none of my business since he is my ex and I have no real feelings towards him anymore but he pays so much more attention to her than me so I think if they do start dating, my friendship with my ex will probably not be the same. And even if they say they would stop, I know for a fact they would hook up or something when I leave the apartment.
Does anyone have any advice about dealing with this? Or maybe how to just numb my feelings about them dating if they did?
