You have nothing to be sorry for...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

You are NOT a terrible person for feeling the way you do. Every person needs to feel loved. Your mother doesn't understand your autism. She needs to learn about you and how you express yourself. This is NOT about you; it's about HER, as difficult as that is to believe. You are worthy of dignity and respect. Have you considered "speaking" to her by typing your feelings and printing them out for her? It may be the connection she needs to show you that you are loved. And while I can't reach out through this computer screen and give you a hug, I am sending you a virtual hug, a virtual hug that say you are not only loved, you are lovable. You are LOVABLE EXACTLY AS YOU ARE. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

it is real
by: Tim L.

I'm sorry you've been hurt by your mothers neglect and emotional abuse; it is most definitely something serious. I can relate to what you describe--I was also a "quiet child" and my mother felt this emboldened her to neglect me, and she also felt no reason to speak unless it was to yell, and that I should be a machine, automatically, silently doing things for her without having to consider human kindness or communication as a part of it. That is a sick way of dealing with people.

What is happening to you is real abuse, and clearly your mother has by her behavior made sure you were much more isolated from people than you otherwise would have been. You do deserve kindness, respect, answers to your questions, praise, encouragement, understanding, and assistance as you go through life. You shouldn't have to be alone, discriminated against in favor of your other sibling, and feeling like it is your fault. If your mother is always going to refuse you these things, I hope you can find some other people who will give them to you; they are out there.

I can relate
by: Anonymous

I can relate...I, too, am autistic and I, too, didn't even talk until I was 5 years old. I am sorry for what your mom is doing to you. Most people who treat someone the way your mom treated you really do it out of jealousy because they feel that they would never be such a shining star that you are. You are a star...and I, too, will give you a virtual hug. Oh, and your mom needs help but so do you, so the sooner you talk to someone you trust, the better. Good luck.

Hey (:
by: Allie Renee

Girl, you should not be feeling this way at all! I don't exactly know where you are coming from honey, but my brother too is autistic. and it was very difficult for him growing up, and since my mother wouldn't raise him or myself. I myself, raised him as my own, even tho I was younger. You deserve love and you deserve comforting words. And remember, god loves you girl, and you are special to him, and you have touched a place in my heart. You deserve to be showered with love, and you will be one day girl, believe me ! <3

Don't give up!
by: Anonymous

You ARE being abused, please don't minimize it.
If you call an abuse hotline they WILL understand you, I promise.
Please tell someone what is happening to you, because you DO NOT deserve this.

I wish I was there so I could give you a big hug. Please do not give up! You are perfect as God made you and you are worthy of being treated with respect.

It's not your fault!
by: BMW Princess

It's not your fault.
Just b/c someone has autism dosn't mean they deserve abuse. PPl might say it's b/c the parents are stressed but that's no excuse.

just dont give up
by: Anonymous

hun, i am so sorry that u feel the way u do. your mother should not be doing that to make u feel like this. But just because she's your biological mother doesnt mean shes a real mom. Dont give up. mabey youll find better love from someone else. even though she is your mom she has to care about u. even if she doesnt show it. just dont give up.
