Yikes.  Make schedules for everything from day 1!  Are they able to help you with bills for the apartment, groceries, or anything else?

Many, many hugs and good wishes your way!  I can’t imagine having my family moving in with me, but you must do what is needed to help them out.  I agree with @peachacid, make sure rules and boundaries are established from the get-go.

*hugs* good luck.  it’s not easy having that many people in such close quarters but I’m sure you’ll be able to make it work.  Maybe they can apply for government assistance such as foodstamps or unemployment to help supplement the bills.

Oh lovey, I am so sorry that you and your family are going through such a trying time. All of you are in my thoughts and in my prayers. It’s going to be a stressful transition, and if you ever need to vent or rant or just need a sympathetic shoulder to cry on, I’m available. I’m sure many other Bees will be as well. (((((HUGS)))))

That must be a lot of stress on your shoulders. BIG HUGS TO YOU!

Set rules from day 1 like PP’s said. Everyone should help clean/cook.

I’m so sorry to hear that your family has come to this! It’s always so hard when people around you struggle, but I think it’s harder when it’s your parents, because you’re so used to them being the “grown up.”

While they’re living with you, try to get them linked in with family support services in the area (which will be easier if your two younger sisters are minors). While they may not currently be eligible for food stamps or government benefits, there are people out there who have a pretty good idea of what’s available for people in their situations (no interest loans, housing support, etc.).

@PinkMermaid:  That’s what I thought, too! Due to work schedules, my TV generally doesn’t even get turned on until after 9pm lol.

OP: Sorry to hear you’re going through this. Are you really in a 2BD w/ only 650 sq ft? My 1BD is 800 – I can’t imagine sharing that little space w/ so many people 🙁
