Times like these make me feel so alone.
You are all aware that Emmett John fell down the steps. He has a broken nose, his face is bruised and he has bruising behind his ears. Well my parents stepped in at the drop of a hat to help out when I rushed him to the hospital. Thank you for being there for us and Emmett John. What saddens me is that not one person in my family besides my parents has even inquired as to how he’s doing. Maybe my expectations are to high but I would think they would be concerned when there nephew was rushed to the hospital and shows signs of intracranial bleeding.
It’s these moments I realize how very alone we are. I wish family meant to everyone else what It means to me. I know it’s not fair to say that but I don’t think it’s to much to make a simple phone call or send a text message. I watch these TV shows where family gets together all the time and they are all involved with their siblings children.
What kills me is that we are in the worst place of anyone and we will be the first to offer help when something happens. I can’t tell you how many midnight calls for help I have received and responded to. It seems like we are always on the outside looking in. Such is the life of a special needs family. We have a whole different perspective on life.
