WARNING A CERTIFIED NUTCASE IS BOUT TO RANT!!! Well here I go, Ive never done this before.....I have had one heck of a ride in the living department. Found out my brother was autistic in 2003, lost my house in 2004, was told I had ADHD in 2005. 2007 my father whom I was very close passed away at 39, as well as finding out I had Fybromyalga. 2008 I got a break off that year .2009/2010 I became ill and ended up having to drop out of school. In July of 2010 I was told I was legally blind, macular degeneration (though I secretly had known for a while). At this point I felt overwhelmed, having to care for my Younger Autistic brother while my mother working full time wasn't at home. I have been trying so hard to be a good sister, to care for my younger brother, to keep the house clean, do the dishes, cook, etc etc. Now my little brother Idolized my Twin brother, who has some less then proper habits. I had scolded him for some of these habits from time to time. Today he had said something to a dear friend of mine, and it was very hurtful. I had told him not to say such mean things. He later went to start again, and this time taking it too far. Now you need to understand, my little brother is considered 'high functioning' autistic. This means he can carry on full conversations(though he has his moments), do everyday tasks and even learn successfully in school. He understands right and wrong. Anyway, I thought that I should tell my mother that he had been quite rude, even hurtful to my friend and that I had scolded him about it. She snapped at me and said, "well! we bent over backwards for your friend! So why would you scold him for thinking something that is true!". I said "But I had told him earlier not to do so, yet he did it again. I think that we should all work harder to teach him not to say mean things". She then told me that I was being the rude one for scolding him. I disagreed. The she chose some very 'colorful' words and told me that I was being selfish and lazy and that maybe I should just leave.I don't think she meant everything she said, but it still hurt.I had tried so hard to be a good sister, a good daughter, I didn't need that..... I know I have my days, where I feel like I want to scream at the top of my lungs at someone, but when it happens to you, it hurts. I love my mother, and I know she loves me, so I know we will get pass this.. Well, that's the end of my rant... Whose next?
