Do you have a supportive family or support system that will help you with your disability? Please talk with me about it.

my family piss me off. all i'm asking of them is to take an hour out of their life and visit our sister. i have been her only visitor in almost 8 years. i even lie to her now and tell her i have not seen any of our family because i dont want her to feel left out. its so sad to me and i get so mad. because she has cp but she is still family and she loves her family even though they do not deserve it.

your sister has cp and your family has cut her out. I can understand cutting someone out of a family cause they have been royal horrors( MIL for the last 4 years). but CP is not her fault

i Have had a very supportive aunt who has helped lots with the disbility. my mom is on the other side of teh world so difficult for her to help much right now though she will be a big help when I go there or when she comes here. dhs mom is great with the kids. but I don't want to take her pension years from her- these are my kids to raise. I will ask for help when dire need but she doesn't exactly have an understanding of what I am dealing with. SIL is a great godmom to sophia hand has been taking sophia some wednesday afternoons lately. she knows it is easier to get a laydown with a one-year-old in a crib and know someone is watching for the 4 year old. that is regardless of having a disability-that is after herself having a little guy that screamed for a year. she knows the burnout factor of baby number 2.

not fully alone - btu the person I truly needed the support from I didn't feel like I was getting the support from for the longest time.
