Living with others
I have moved in with my friend and her family as I have no where else to go. I do not mind staying there, but I sometimes sence that me and my daughter (7yrs) are not that welcome in there home, so I mostly avoid any conflict that may arise and stay in my room all day (and demanding my daughter to stay as well).

I am mostly quiet and keep myself busy reading as I love books & mags, but my daughter on the other hand is active and does not want to sit in the room every day.

How do I make our stay pleasant, as this is not short term? I do not have the finances to get a place of my own and willingly pay them what they set out as lodging, ect.

Isn't your daughter going to school ? And if you are paying for lodging, you should feel more free to feel at home and look after your daughter as you would anywhere. have you discussed this calmly with them, your hosts ? Surely they don't expect your daughter to sit quietly in the room all day ? Sounds also as if you really need to discuss all this in detail with your shrink.
