Can’t take it anymore

by boojay

I have so much I want to say. You don’t know me at all. But for now all I’ll say is this.


i asked my mom for three things for Christmas.  Three little things.  I wanted to drive an hour to see a light display.  I wanted a small tabletop tree to decorate  and I wanted no gifts, from anyone.  She did none of this.  We have no tree.  I didn’t and won’t get to see the light display.  And I have gifts from my grandparents and am elderly great aunt and uncle waiting.  I don’t feel worthy of gifts from these people.  I am chronically ill and we are poor.  The people who gave me gifts pretty much already support us and I want no more from them.  Ironically, I have no gifts or cards or even calls from my brother, sister, or father who do not live with us.  They are not poor and don’t otherwise help.  In fact, I was left off of a Christmas card my sister sent to my mom, but that is no surprise.  She disowned me (hasn’t spoken to me, told my mom I was not welcome in her home, etc) when I got sick.  There is also no gift, not one, coming from my mom.  I would be okay with that if she’d honored my requests, but she didn’t.

i don’t think I can handle this.  On Christmas Day it will be worse. I will try and ignore the day entirely but I am not sure it will help.

may post my full story later, but had to vent now.

I’m sorry to hear about the way things have turned out despite your requests. As for advice I’m afraid I’m as much use as a duck with a shovel, but the vent can only be a good thing 🙂

I hope there can be some light from somewhere…
