We were all actually disabled, to some extent

woman standing in cave looking outThanksgiving is coming up.

That means family.

That means dealing with my parents, who have been pretty rough on all us kids — despite the glaring fact that we were — each of us — actually disabled to some extent.

We ruined our parents’ lives. Or so we were told.

That much was made clear to us in a million different ways, over the years we lived in their house.

I left that house as soon as I was humanly and legally able. I knew my odds were better in an indifferent world that hadn’t yet made up its mind about me, than with a family that had already decided I was a waste of space.

And I was right.

More to come…
