I’ve had enough of people telling me to be grateful for what I have and announcing to me that others have it worse. At least I’m not blind… I’m blind in one eye. I cannot see out of my left eye properly because the connections never developed. I have a home yes but several times I could have lost my flat for different reasons over the last year alone. I only kept a roof over my head because I borrowed off of family when all the benefits got cut and rearranged. I couldn’t afford to barely live after my rent and bills. I had to use the food bank. I have the most irritating brain ever because it just can’t do things that everyone ‘normal’ takes for granted. I will always be retarded to a certain degree. I lose everyone I like because I’m such a social outcast due to how my brain works. I am grateful for what I have but I have issues that make my life continually challenging. They wouldn’t be as challenging if I could get the support that I need from the mental health and social care system. I had a baby which I wanted so much but he got taken from me instead of the right support being put in to help me be a Mum. I wanted that life so much. I wanted to study at University so much too but that was also taken from me after they refused to support my needs. I exist but I don’t live a full life and I probably never will get the chance to have that due to how people judge me.
