Why There Are No Resources for People Escaping Abusive Families

July 27, 2018

We are the cast-offs of society because our family has too much drama in it for normal people to take. Normal families get along, they function well together, they deal with their problems in therapy. Families that do not get along so well deny shit, spend a lot of energy miserable, don’t tackle their problems, and well, misery loves company right? This is why over the holiday season, nobody is going to see my face. Anywhere. Even if I make some extra income so I’m not struggling every month like I am now, I’m still not showing my face.

Even if hypothetically, I could make enough money to get off of the dole, I could still not show up. Nobody wants to confront their issues in my family. Seriously, nobody. Dysfunctional families are all like that. So we children from extremely authoritarian and controlling family environments have to stay away from triggers like family holidays. Being around constantly manic people makes me manic. Then I’m manic and everybody else around me feels my mania. This is why high school was horrible for me. I kept imagining my illness symptoms messed other people up. But guess what, not my responsibility to get me on meds. No. We know who it was.

It is not cool to spread your goddamn mania germs around. This is why those of us who have to deal with mental health need to be on meds. Nobody wants to deal with your unstable shit. Mental health problems run in families a lot because it’s all passed down in the genes. If people are in denial, well, look at yourself in the mirror.

(Michael Jackson, Man In the Mirror)
I’m gonna make a change,
For once I’m my life
It’s gonna feel real good,
Gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you want to make the world a better place
(If you want to make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change
(Take a look at yourself, and then make a change)
(Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah)

I’ve been a victim of a selfish kind of love
It’s time that I realize
That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan
Could it be really me, pretending that they’re not alone?
So yes, I’m sick to death of people not being on meds. So I’m off to where people are cool, not some deathly codependent needy psychic vampire draining freak show. All energy is an exchange in the end, all of it. So quit picking on my energy difference dumbshit new agers. You are feeding off of people too and don’t know it. Every social interaction is an exchange after all.

Dysfunctional families are very needy. Us Children of the Corn are just plain dysfunctional sometimes. This is why we have to make an effort to cut them out of our lives until the narcissists prove they are changing. Somebody not in therapy with three personality disorders is not doing themselves a favor. Anybody with issues who thinks therapy is bunk is not helpful to those of us who know how useful therapy is to the rest of the world. After all, I used to have oppositional defiant disorder but see, that’s another story for another time. I need to start a hotline, guys. I need staff. I have to write a grant proposal and from there raise money in San Jose. Thanks.
