My parents again – As I sink down under the waves of financial depression, I know that I am still standing

Ya know, I’ve done great, no cash from my parents since around x-mas, and that cash was only $50 to help pay for x-mas dinner which I invited them and the entire family to attend because they refused to allow Thorik and I to attend the one at their house.
