My Daughter Acts Ashamed of My Disability
Advertisements [?]
This has really been irking me. i became disabled four years ago thanks to big pharma. I have problems with my eyes, my throat and lungs. My daughter is 14 and is irked any time i show signs of my symptoms be it coughing, choking, mild PTSD rages. When I ask her for a glass of water when I am choking she gives me a dirty look and takes her time about it while i turn purple. I do not spend much time with her as her mother abandoned me four months after I got out of the hospital. She never visited me when i was in the hospital in a coma because it was "too scary" and she tells me it is her job as a teenager to be a pisser. I tell her that it is her job to help a family member who has special needs. I ask her mother to put in a word on my behalf but she tells me that this is strictly between me and my daughter. Anyone have any advice as I am at wit's end and am also sick of being treated poorly by my own flesh and blood.
