Can't win

Today, like nearly every morning, I got yelled at by a relative because I got up late. Nearly every night, I lie in bed with anxiety attacks because of her daily insults. I get up late to avoid her, but she decided that I sleep great, which makes her angry. She also gets angry if I get up earlier than her. FML

I assume that where you live is your “relative’s” home. The only long term solution is to get a job and a place of your own when you are able. Make your plans based on that. In the meanwhile you could try to find some compromise with this “relative” since it sounds like she is as unhappy as you are with the current situation.

By the way it would be a bit easier to understand if you had said Mom or Stepmom or Aunt or Grandma or Sister or whatever the relationship is. When you appear to hide behind a generic description of “relative” for this person it makes it sound like you leaving out something important to the story.
