I don't know why it bothers me so much, but it does. my sister is 26, my brother is 22 and I am 30 today. Well today my mom texts me at 3pm to wish me a happy birthday she didn't call she texted i am kind of upset that she texted instead of called. Well she also got my sister and brother 50.00 for their birthday and me all i get is a text. my grandma for the past 5 years have gone to flordia every year and gone through my birthday and she always says we will do something when she gets back, but doesn't. She gives my sister and brother 100.00 for their birthday, but me nothing. The year before she started going to flordia she gave me 5.00 for my birthday and before that she gave me trash bags and a trash can because someone told her I didn't have a trash can in my house (which I did it was outside to be sprayed and cleaned). My mom will go out of her way to watch my sisters 4 year old son, but to me i have a 7,4 and 10.5 month old girls if i need a sitter she has things to do. Like a couple weeks ago I needed to go to the ER for shortness of breath and asked my mom to watch the girls, but she had to go to church and she said why can't i take them with me (my dh was taking me) so of course i had noone to watch them so we brought them with us to the ER DH dropped me off and I called when he needed to pick me up. He let the kids sleep until he got a call I called him at 2 am to pick me up so he had to wake the kids up to bring them back out to get me at 2am. We didn't have the money for a taxi. It is like my family treats me diffrent I don't know why. They have always treated me diffrent. Even christmas my grandma gives my brother and sister 100.00, but me nothing. And my brother treats everyone like crap and he still gets stuff. He told my mom a while back that he wished she would die and my mom said something about him moving out (22 and still lives at home with no bills) he said no you can move out to my mom. My sister and brother never paid rent, but i had to pay rent even just babysetting and getting 50.00 a week i paid 20.00 a week so only got 30.00 of that check. My mom bought my sisters year books in high school, but me i had to buy mine. i never got a class ring cause my mom wouldn't buy it, but she bought my sister one.Answer Question
