my parents have always told me i’ve had a learning disability, as it was obvious when i studied all night but got F’s. but they never try to get me help for anything. you may be thinking “ok?” but you don’t get it. i was having trouble hearing, which i complained about every single day. it took my mom FOUR YEARS to believe me. i was diagnosed with severe hearing loss and needed hearing aids. my doctor said, quote by quote, “you should have come in a lot sooner.” and in those four years, i struggled a lot with hearing my teachers and friends.
every time i try to tell my parents something is wrong, they don’t listen. i once self-harmed (cut) every night alone for a month. i try to tell them and they what do they do? laugh. i’m so done with them.
