    Exhausting

    The nights she cries and it comes through the walls are the worst. I can hear her sobs all night as I lay in bed. It's a sound of desperation and makes me want to cry with her. I used to check on her every once in awhile, just to make sure she was ok. I would stand by the door...

    Why?

    My mom has been battling multiple sclerosis and it's recently feeling unfair that not only does she have to have her life taken away from her as she is too sick to even be herself but me and my family are suffering too. I miss the days my mom would drive me to school, cook...

    My mom has kidney disease.

    She was diagnosed with it when I was eleven (sixteen now) and after she had my little sister. I'm one of five kids now and although everything is okay with her right now I still worry a lot. Like if she's gone for too long I worry she's in the hospital. I know she's not going to...

    Very Suddenly
