I have two older brothers, who are 18 and 19. My eldest brother is autistic and my other is a typical, rebellious teenager. In my house, I do all the chores, try and help as much as I can. My mum has always ignored me and always uses a really harsh tone of voice unless she wants something. She says she doesn't believe in saying 'I love you' or giving hugs, but she is always trying to give them to my older brothers. Recently, I was diagnosed with quite a serious condition and I find myself incapable of reading and concentrating and I need to rely on her a lot. The first week of my illness, I believed that I may have been wrong all these years, but today she told me it was all my fault, called me a *****, and told me she couldn't bear to see my face. This is not the first time she has said things like this, and the sad thing is, I know I'll end up being the one who apologises while she makes me feel guilty. I really can't cope with this and the pain at the moment. I've tried to seek her approval all my life, and I don't want to keep doing it. Help?
