i thought would make a rant thread for people who want to get things out but dont have anyone to talk to about it! i'm so annoyed, today i went to the opticians and found out i have to have an operation on my eye, my parents are refusing to give me a lift back from the hospital even though its only a 20 minute or so drive away! they are just telling me to take the bus back but 1. i have no money! 2. i have issues getting on public transport due to confidence issues and 3. I WILL HAVE JUST HAD AN OPERATION AND PROBABLY BE IN PAIN SO I DONT WANT THE HASSLE OF THAT! grr so annoying that they cant make 20 minutes out of their day for me! when for anyone else they could! it sucks cos i dont think anyone else will take me and i just think its something my parents should happily do!

Eye operations of any kind freak me out. I can't imagine not giving family a lift. I took my MIL and it was an hour drive each way.

Parents can be very strange! I have confidence issues and my new partner is very good about taking me everywhere bless him even the doctor - if he wouldnt take me i wouldnt go! I do feel for you and it was a well deserved rant indeed....Hope everything goes well for you and they change there mind :)

I�m sorry to hear about your eye operation, that�s very scary. And to feel that you have no support from your family must be heartbreaking.

Rants can be liberating as we get things off of our chest. Then after the rant, we move on to coming up with viable solutions to our dilemmas. I know it is not easy, but try to be positive. Negativity will not do you any good.

I actually went through something similar myself. I went home via public transportation after getting my wisdom teeth yanked. I thought I would be fine as I didn�t know how much pain I�d be in after the procedure. I was in agony�and alone. And in this agony, I went to fill my prescriptions by myself and waited until the meds were ready. I would not recommend this.

If your family can�t help you for whatever reason, then think outside of the box, a friend, a neighbor, an old classmate from school? The person can either drive you home or take the bus with you. Also perhaps if your friends/family can�t accompany you due to work or other obligations, maybe they can lend you money to take a cab. Try to barter, offer to return the favor etc.

(For more tips, see How to Ask for Help).

Good luck and please do keep us posted.
