My brother has multiple disabilities, developmentally he never aged past 6 months old. He doesn’t speak and doesn’t walk. He’s completely reliant on our care for him. He’s made me a much less selfish person, thinking about others needs before my own. He’s now 22 years old and I’m 23. I pursued a career in nursing because of my experience with him and I love my career. My education has helped me to better meet his needs and to be able to educate my mom (his primary caregiver) on how to better care for him. Without him I would not be the person I am today. I hate how everyone always apologizes for the way he is, he doesn’t know he’s different, I’ve never known him any different, he was born this way stop apologizing for him, it’s rude.

“You need to pop out some kids and get a husband. That’ll straighten you out.” Bleh. Comments from both men and women about my size, I weigh 105lbs, I must have an eating disorder, or “pet names” based on my size (string bean, bean pole, giraffe) I don’t walk around calling you tubby, so stop it. Or “you’re pretty why are you working?”. Eff that.
My dad got me flowers from 1800 flowers and they were nice, all alive and looked like a bear.

Home made kombucha is the best.
Response to “One Size Fits All” On Different Body Types:
I went to a place that was “one size fits all” and like 60% of what I tried on was too small. I wear a size 0-2, those clothes were made for children, but I still felt shitty that my ass wouldn’t fit.
