DepressionDiaries: Never pick on my Sister >:(

Today my mum, sister and I decided to eat at Mcdonald’s. Now I may not have mentioned this before but my sister has autism. The type of autism where she’s 22 but behaves like a two year old. Now her obvious difference has brought me and my family unwanted attention over the years, people staring, laughing and even taking photos of my sister like she’s an exhibit ( don’t take photos of someone with special needs  by the way without the carer’s permission because it is illegal and you could get arrested)

today was worse than usual, two tables of four people took it upon themselves to make fun of my sister. I should have expected it to be honest but it caught me off guard. We sat down in a booth and I was facing one of the two groups of four. The two girls were laughing at my sister, trying to hide their faces so I wouldn’t see, even though I was looking directly at them (dumb bitches) one of the guys decided to start imitating my sister while the other was trying to get them to stop, saying “It’s not funny” “you’re so immature” I liked him but his pals were upsetting me I felt embarrassed, furious and sad all at once.

When they were finally leaving I couldn’t bottle up my rage anymore I said loud enough for the group to hear “Thank God the bitches are going, BYE!” and when they turned I stuck my middle finger up at them. They came to a stop to let my mum pass them in the aisle (LOL, my mum said they seemed guilty when she went passed them) at this point one of the boys was looking at me so I raised my chin and glared at him as if to say “fight me” and I was so mad that I’d wanted to start fighting him but they all soon got to the door, taking one last turn to look my way where I stuck my middle finger up at them again.

It may not seem much but it felt great to do something about the hate my sister gets just for being different besides it was really fun to behave like that instead of taking their shit like my family have done for years with people like them.

Moral of the story: if you see someone who is clearly different from the norm, mind your own damn business.

    Hey NI2M,
    It makes me so angry how other people are so disrespectful of people who live with disabilities – physical, developmental, mental illness, anything. I’m so sorry about how these people treated your sister. 😦
    In addition, I wanted you to know that I’ve nominated you for the Blogger Recognition Award! Details here:

    Take care! ❤ xx Blooming Lily

    That’s horrible! I can’t stand people like that… And if you actually look deeper into their lives, they’re miserable people, who only feel better about themselves when being disrespectful and mean to others. If I had been there with you, oh, we would have had a field day. They would run away with their damn tails between their legs. Idiots. I’m sorry you and your family had to go through that. ❤
