We have no support from our parents (both of us haven't spoken to them in over 6 years) and are virtually living with no one but each other...Lately, though, people just seem more... show more I actually live in Canada, very close to Montreal.

And as to the getting-a-gun comment, we can't have guns here so...and my brother wouldn't allow one in the house anyway.
