The past attitudes

Harp Member Posts: 78 Pioneering
At 8 years old I went to away to a boarding school which was a special school for those with a speech and language problems in the 80s. 

Back then disabilities wasn't seen in the public.

Unfortunately recently I stop talked my to my parents as their attitudes towards me are stuck in the past.

I have tried talking to them and even suggestions mediation to have a fair platform for all but they didn't want that.

Yes it hurts but I figured my mental health have improved slightly since stop talking to my parents.

Have anyone else been through a similar thing and got any suggestions to help please?

    Hi @Harp how are you today? Do you have any other family (brothers/sisters etc) who could step into help?

    Hi @woodbine

    I am not too bad thanks, how are you?

    I have 3 brothers & 1 sister but we never been a close knit family which I do wonder why.

    I don't talk to my eldest bro cus his wife talks down to me and talk to me through someone else, she also teased me about my speech. I don't speak to my sister cus for her 2nd marriage she wanted me as bridesmaid until  she asked the sister in law I didn't like to be a bridesmaid to look after me. Not talked to my sister again.

    My other 2 bothers don't keep in touch thou but I did try telling one how I was getting treated by parents . He said that's not happening.

    I know my mum talked behind my back to the other and don't give the right info cus I caught her doing it a few times.

    So no I haven't got no one else to help
