    Today, the matriarch of my family,

    my aunt, is being interred. Not only was I not told that she was ill; I was not given any details as to where the funeral was going to be held or where the shiva will take place. The only person who even advised me she had passed was my brother-in-law. This is probably for...

    I have never regretted anything

    as much as I have regretted moving back home. This is coming from someone who has made more bad decisions than I can count. I've lost most all of my friends and my family exclude me from practically everything. Some of them actively dislike me and try to make every day of my...

    They've Turned Their Backs

    I used to love going to see my family. When me and my cousins were young we'd all play together all the time! But as we grew into our teen years it became clear that we didn't have much in common anymore. I've always been the odd ball in anything I do. I guess that's why they...

    I've been told my brothers don't love me.

    We were all adopted as babies, but I was adopted last, after my brothers were older. I don't remember any other family. Several years ago my sister-in-law told me I should find my family elsewhere. She said my brothers have no natural feeling for me and don't love me. What...

    The Cylce Of Trying To Please, And Realizing Failure

    I don't even know where my story starts... I don't know that my mother even wanted to have me. At the least, she holds it against me that she was so sick when pregnant with me. But she was able to breastfeed me, and not my brother, so she tried to force it on me as long as she...

    Family Reject

    It was my choice to separate myself from my family. I didn't like the sorts of things they did (including drugs, heavy drinking, and I didn't like their thoughts or opinions) but I always managed to at least get along with a few of them, if not all of them. However, to be...

    All my life I've been ostracized, rejected and bullied for being autistic. Even by family. I never get that bond or sense of belonging that most people seem to have.
