Does anyone else ever feel like really trapped? Like you can’t control things in your life because something stops you from doing it?? I would love to make films with my siblings but my sister and I have a massive age gap between us and my brother has disabilities so he struggles with speech so I feel like i can’t do the things I want to do.

I feel like this too. I know that it is hard but you could ask your sister to do a film with you and have an extra (non speaking) part for your brother.

I feel the same I am really anxious about talking about my sister and don’t know how to talk about her openly as I’m in high school and everyone jokes about people with disabilities. My sister cannot speak and I find it stressful at times being around her coz she acts like a 8 year old even though she’s 29

I feel a bit sad knowing that non of my friends know how I feel with my brother and they expect me to help out with their silly problems like the areguements they had LAST YEAR! I do feel quite proud of my brother, though, because there is a lot of famous autistic people out there, for example, Albert Einstein or Isaac Newton and I have a feeling most autistic people are going to change the world like they did

So I’m 17 and I have two young siblings aged 6 & 9 and my parents are 50 right now. Idk why but I feel worried about how their future is going to work out like I feel like I’m gonna have to stay with them in order for them to live a bit stable you know? My parents are already getting at the stage where they’re tired and don’t have much time so… I usually think about this all the time and I feel trapped because they are not my responsibility but I know In some way they are and I just want to help all of them live a bit stable and better than how I lived. I break down every time I think about this.

Hi @hidden_in_my_brain I ik how u feel. I can’t even tell some of my closest mates about my sister because I’m too embarrassed. She just is so loud n if things don’t go her way she starts having a melt down even tho she’s 29

I’m 9 but I’m already experiencing harder things than usual 9 year old does. I relate to everything people say on this. My brothers (2 brothers; identical twins and both autistic) insult me if I make any noise, and they’re always on their screens. It’s like I can’t do anything without factoring my brothers in. To add to that, I also have a gigantic fear of being late for any public transport so my brothers (who are YOUNGER than me) say that I’m a crybaby.It’s so hard and it’s like they hate me. I don’t even talk with my parents much because my brothers SCREAM if they don’t get attention 24/7. I can’t even get to sleep at night!

I relate to everything people are saying on here but I recently told people about my siblings and it helps, I promise but only tell your closest friends or people you know won’t make fun of it. I hate it when people take the mickey out of disabled people because it just really annoys me because it’s like they don’t know that disabled people are actually people if you get what I mean.
