oh yes ditto to all of that !
im in my role as brothers caretaker
and if I try to step out of it or get annoyed
they think its me having a funny turn !

I see poetry there in what you said :


" I am the designated 'sick person'
in my family,
and it is akin to being the black sheep.
Everybody else is supposed to be ok,
so they get to look disapprovingly at me
and talk down to me.
I think dysfunctional is the new normal "


so many poets on this forum ! or song lyrics maybe

I feel like a dustbin
a hoover for everyone elses emotions
a dogs body ,
bailing out the leaky boat
of my family mess !

:love:

O. I wasn't trying to be poetic. There isn't much to inspire poetry in my family. That situation is all pretty much dry as dust prose.

I know what you mean. :) Definitely, as a 'crazy person', I do have to laugh sometimes at the irony of it all.

It is not fair to put the burden of care on you.
Doesn't your brother have a social worker?
This is a sad situation.

Zoe I always thought your posts are written as if in free verse which I really like.
I like that you don't use punctuation because that's often how thoughts come out.
Just freely.

I like that you see poetry in the things others say.
Keep doing you.

awww thankyou Dewey !

my brother actually lives in a hostel
which is very well staffed
I helped him to get in there
but recently he just complains about the staff

probably they have their shortcomings !

thankyou, I used to go on alot of poetry forums
I think leaving out the punctuation is called ' scat '

thankyou for encouraging me to be me !

:love:

Hmm he is being looked after which is good. Don't shoulder too much of the burden if it's too much pressure to put on yourself.

thankyou Dewey and Taurus

yes Im working on the idea
that I should contact him when it suits me
when it really comes from the heart
rather than on behalf of someone else

which I have just done actually
because I'm in so much pain physically
he can be quite good with such things

:love: :love:
