    My mom has multiple personalities

    and because that illness is so rare, it's hard to find someone who understands and knows what it's like to live with that. I'm only 16 and she's 34. Since I was physically able, I have taken care of myself, my mother, and my half brother in the absence of his father and my own...

    She's basically making me feel like the worst

    child she's ever had. I'm the one that she complains most on, yet she brags about me the most. 😭 I'm not trying to be so melodramatic but I honestly feel like shutting it all off and dying. Ending it, right here and right now. But I can't because I want my future. I want to...
