I have mental illness I was diagnosed as a teenager and my brother has somethings but was never as serious for it to be checked out. My mom has a few things or even one and is pretty serious at times and never gets checked out. When she has a mental breakdown I always get affected and start breaking down too. It's like a dominoe effect. I do so much for my fam and sometimes I don't feel appreciated. Most the time I stay silent with this verbal abuse. When I breakdown im not like my mom I feel the same things but I still think before I say things that will hurt her.
