Life as a mature woman living with a disability

My life within my family growing up as a child was hard.My Mother dropped my sisters and me off at our babysitter house one day when I was 5 years old and left us there never to return.She took our brother with her who was only 4 months old at the time and we were all left to wonder why this happened.

I, of course, blamed myself not being born the perfect child.We would get our brother back into our lives when he was 14 months old and we went on with our lives.As time went by I often wondered why she left me with my father who as time went on blamed me and my disability for the reason my mother left.Today I still struggled with not being the perfect daughter, although my father and I haven’t spoken in 23 years nor do I see my sisters and brother anymore because they took my father’s side on me being the reason my mother left us all behind.It’s hard having a family.
