They should probably close this thread because people are just going to degrade the OP, tell him the ubiquitous "move to North Dakota or Texas" or "start your own business" garbage they spew out all the time. If people are to this point, they probably don't have enough money to start their own business or especially move (like that's cheap) People during the Great Depression sold apples, there you go. It's that or the Navy, no one else can tell you anything meaningful.

Do you want to live your own life, or do you want to live his life? Eventually you will have to make a choice. Your father won't let you travel out of state, as a 30 year old? Your father has no control over you, beyond what you let him have.

Give us a few examples of things he would say. Suppose you found a job as a truck driver and took it, what would he tell you?

You are 30, you do not need a home to go back to. You need to live for you, not for anyone else.

Yes letting the OP know his options is a terrible thing. Op you are young enough to still join the Army, Air Force and Navy, I think Marines you may be too old. You could also marry a rich woman, or at least date someone who has a car and her own place. Then use her to get away.

At this point, OP you just need to take a step back and see if you really are focused correctly. Is it right to blame your parents, when you are an adult? Or is it right to be an adult and accept responsibility for you not wanting to leave home?

In another current thread authored by the OP he says he just graduated school last year and is having difficulty finding a job because he's been taking care of sick parents. I wonder which story (if either) is the truth ...

Maybe he's been on the ten-year plan?

He wants to be a truck driver too but advises against it in another thread.

Many times when I reply, I think of other potential viewers who may be in a similar dilemna. It may or may not be what the OP wants to hear, but perhaps it may help someone else..

Actually I do want to be a truck driver. It's one of the easiest jobs to get
right now and the pay ain't bad if you stay there for years.
