I grew up going to these people's house, They had a daughter and a son....The son had mental issues. Their son didn't have a brother....I think the family made me pretend I was his little brother.
I think he know's He doesen't have a little brother, He just can't except it.......usually theires a limit to what a mental person understands, But, He know's what a big brother's role is....He teased and shamed me, when I used to go over ther. To him, it was funny. I didn't think so.
I think it's nice for what his parent's did for him....makeing me, and maybe other's that went over there, think that he had a little brother, But, It is misleading, to put a person in a uncomfortable positon like that.
Curtain situation's make me feel VERY uncomfortable, Like growing up.....I use to to go over to friend's of the family house....I was close with their daughter, and they had a son, Who had mental issues, He didn't have a brother, I think He thought I was his little brother,, someone he could tease and tell what do, and how to do it......And if their was stuff I understood and he didn't, I tryed to assert myself And explain it to him, He would get upset.....Thinking I'm older then You, I should know more then You..
That kind of stuff made me feel Very uncomfortable.....if Uber and or Lyft existed......I would have left, That's how uncomfortable it made me.
Blood may be thicher then water, but, I did feel very uncomfortable around him.
I couldn't tell the parent's, because.....their these ultra self-ritious hollier-then-though people, Who believe "what would Jesus think if I did that" that You don't talk about other people hehind their back's.
If You even tryed You would here something like "You know we don't do that in this house"
I know You should probably Put Your discomfort aside for the mentally disabaled, But, being disabled myself, I am very sensitive about stuff like this.
I hate feeling this way, I can't even sleep without thinking about it all these year's later....
I don't know what do.
Life hurts, and then more and more and .......Seems most of my life has had pain and immense difficulties. No sooner does one crisis go before another one appears. Last 8 years have been spent looking out for our daughters who were severely abused throughout their childhood and now have serious mental health problems. Just when I thought life had turned a corner, wham. Husband of 36 years walks...
Hi, I'm in a profession which is overwhelmingly women. Not a big deal but it produces some challenges. I'm usually the only man around. They joke and laugh about things that can get somewhat inappropriate at times. Sometimes singling me out as the lone male. I find it funny. Doesn't bother me. Issue is more that if I said the same thing. Or any joke about women in a similar fashion. I'd likely...
