I couldn't dress myself

Toddlers bodies aren’t agile enough to dress themselves. I was told kids need help dressing until they are 7 years old. My mother expected a little too much too soon. It was painful.

As a toddler I had trouble getting my arms in the little sleeves, I was too weak to rip the shirt but I would always mangle my shoulder joints. It was tough.

Hell, I still can’t dress myself. It takes four psychiatrists, 5 ativans, and a psychotic neighbor to get me presentable enough every morning to go to work.

My Mom never got diagnosed but she barely noticed me - her head was in the clouds.

Maybe she was ill like mine was.

Yes, I know she was ill. A lot of my troubles were just like mother’s.
