I Feel Like I Dont Have A Family

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 81 People

    I feel like my family only wants me around

    for what I can give to them, and what little money I make. They don't know who I am when I'm broke, but have my number as soon as I'm paid.

    My name is Hayley. I have mild cerebral palsy.

    I feel like my disability holds me back a lot from fun things. My family doesn't really understand what having a disability is like at all.

    I have kids though. They are my only family.

    My only hope is that they can build the family connections that I haven't. For their own benefit. On their moms side, I mean.
