    My dad has been blind

    for almost 3 years. This has affected me in ways i would've never even thought could affect me. Everyday he gets mad at every single thing me or my mom or 10 year old sister do all because of his medicine. We tried so hard to raise money and started fundraisers for this...

    I'm so broken up. My dad has had Multiple

    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...

    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...

    Very Suddenly

    It all started on what was supposed to be a relatively happy Friday. I was taking the last final of my college career (history), and I thought I heard my phone vibrate several times. Since I was in the middle of an exam, I obviously couldn't answer my phone. As soon as I finished...
