Jenn here. I just got off the phone with my mother. My parents are forcing me to go back to college. It’s really unfair. They said that if I don’t go back to school they’ll stop paying for my apartment, bills, and other living expenses. It’s unfair because they said the same thing to me about five months ago except instead of going to school it was seeing a therapist and taking medication. I’m currently doing both of those things so the school thing came as a huge surprise. Apparently they were planning it all along. My mom said the next step after school would be for me to start working. I’m so angry that my parents have basically been planning my life behind my back and are forcing me to go through with their plans by threatening homelessness. It’s not that I’m unappreciative of all that they do for me, it’s just that, like so many others, they don’t understand that I’m unable to lead a “normal” lifestyle for someone my age. I can probably handle school but I am definitely unable to work. My parents don’t understand that I’m not always in control of my body. A toddler and a flying dog CANNOT do work intended for an adult human. I wish my parents would believe me. When ever I try to bring up my multiplicity they tell me they don’t want to talk about it or they tell me they don’t know I seek attention in such a ridiculous way. I am NOT looking for attention. I am sick of their singletism. I am so sick of being told that the reality of my life isn’t valid. It is incredibly abusive to do that to anyone. If I can’t go to school or work, I feel like it is the least they can do to at least take care of me… especially after I have had to suffer at the hands of their singlet privilege for so long.
Quick update: I am still obsessed with otherkin (also I just found out about “multiple systems” and I’m dyyyinnngggg)
