For any desi person that still lives at home with your parents, how do you deal with the emotional abuse and yelling from your parent(s)? As I get older, it’s affecting me more now. Any tips to not let it affect me and ways to maintain happiness? I am caregiver so I’m not going to move out.

You should tell them to give you respect. Emotional abuse and yelling is not acceptable

Walk away mid yelling. Let them know that you’re only going to continue the conversation when they stop yelling. Keep drawing those boundaries

unfortunately the more you try to avoid them more bitterness & stress will develop.

I cry and let it out. Sometimes I hurt myself in front of them so they can see how they are affecting me.

I’m sorry you’re going through this but Do not hurt yourself, please. Seek someone to talk to.

Why not get your own place?

I don’t encourage any kind of destructive discussion by responding to comments or acknowledging them at all. I let them know that if they want to talk through something, they can approach me with respect. Also I help take care of my family as well but they know I’m completely willing to leave and live on my own. I don’t rely on them for anything so they try to not push me too much. I know it seems like moving out is not an option but the situation won’t really change. Your parents won’t change. Either you deal with this somehow indefinitely (which I wouldn’t recommend) or you create some space and take care of them from a distance.

With social security potentially running out, why couldn’t it be an option for the govt to put $5k for every baby that is born in a year into an account Invested in a govt share class S&P 500 fund. Historical average is 10%+, which would provide roughly $2.7 million for a baby born today. Eventually, this would eliminate the need for soc sec tax, and would only cost $18 Billion a year instead of several trillion a year being deposited into the trust.

Have any of you ladies switched birth control pills after only a week? I’ve been on my old pill for 1.5 years and it’s been mostly great but told my gyno my libido is much lower. She suggested mini pill and it’s been a nightmare. I’ve thrown up, hot flashes, awful heavy, clotty bleeding (sorry if TMI) and a headache everyday. I do feel like I have my libido back up though, only good thing. I want to switch back to my old pill, but not sure if I should after just a week. Gyno says it’s up to me.
