Anyone with an autistic siblingWatch
I almost don’t want to write this ig? I feel bad because my sister has high functioning autism. I get I don’t know what it’s like to be in her head. And I guess I don’t understand ASD as much as I should. But it’s hard not to get annoyed. I’m finding her very stressful as of recent since I’m dealing with some pretty significant stuff. It’s little things that annoy me that shouldn’t but my compassion simply isn’t there and it hasn’t been there for while. I feel a resentment towards my sister almost. She’s always where I am. I’m always dealing with her problems. My mum does too but it just feels like a lot. And it can be quite emotionally draining. I do try my best to get along with and I do understand why she behaves the way she does. It’s just hard to not get frustrated at her and crack. I really want to move out. I get this is a very small problem to have. It’s frustrating to be 17 and look after a 21 year old idk. Needed to rant. Anybody else in a similar situation? Anybody have an autistic sibling?
