Our expert says:
Firstly, antidepressants sould NOT be mixed with uppers and chillers, and may lose whatever value they have under such circumstances. Secondly, antidepressants are only genuinely useful for treating depression and cerain other specficic disorders --- they do not solve personal and interpersonal problems. Only counselling / therapy can do that.
Int he situation you describe, your parents and granny will obviously want to dscourage ANY man you meet, as they see the result of any relatonship you form as likely to end up with them being out on the street ( have they no income, savings, pensions ? ) If you are due to move, why not look for a nice modest house for yourself, with a GRanny Flat where the 3 of them could live, on the same property but not under your feet, and caring largely for themselves ? WHy, if you are paying for it all, did you every invite THEM to pick the place they wanted ? And who had the almighty cheek to set a conditon that you cannot have friends visit you in your own place ? Outrageous !
Your mother needs to be told very clearly and firmly that YOU pay the rent means that it is YOUR house, not yours. If she wants a place where she can set the rules, she must buy it or rent it for herself.
DOn't accept her invitations to go on a guilt trip --- you have nothing to feel guilty about ( though SHE does !). Manipulation only works if you acept the invitation. Let them get thweir own place, pai for by everything the three of them have to support themselves with ( it would be very peculiar for a Greek family not to have made provision for themsselves ) while you get your own place, where YOU make your own rules.
