My husband was happy that his sister was calling him and made him feel like she cared about our family. Then last saturday she called him drunk, telling me to get a job. It's really frustrating to be treated like a I'm a burden, when I have to be available to my daughter everyday. She's eleven and has severe autism. She is also nonverbal and doesn't use the bathroom or dress herself. It makes my hubby and I feel terrible that his family feels the need to put us down. I can call them all the names in the book but you can't beat some ppl's ignorance. So they're basically thinking I sit on the couch and eat bonbons?! I wished, better than cleaning poop off the carpet and walls! *smh* My daughter fecal smears at least 3x a weeks at least if I'm not keeping an close eye on her :( It's hard work and I hate when his family tries to make it look like I'm just a slacker. The SSI go by income so it's not like she gets the same amount of money every month so that isn't very dependable. And we can't get food assistance because he "makes too much" which is far from it! We live paycheck to paycheck. His family just makes me feel like crap sometimes.
