"Your a disgusting piece of shit"

The Abuse Oct 9, 2019

Mom got angry that Grimma and Grumpa offered Aunt Brie money to move closer to the family in Chappaqua.

“Your a disgusting piece of shit,” she said. “You get rewarded for sitting on your ass, getting fat and doing nothing.”

Here is an excerpt of Aunt Brie's blog from October 9, 2019:

I’m Not Mary, Mother of God, But That Bitch Only Had One Child

October 9, 2019

“What do you guys talk about, what your husbands or partners do?” Caleb asked me when I relayed to him that I had gone to the playground with this French friend.

And he was not joking. He was completely serious. I am working harder than I ever have in my entire life, like by a fucking long shot, and when my husband looks at my day, he sees a blank void filled only by his own career.

When my parents said they would help me put a down payment on a house in Chappaqua, the sister closest in age [Mom] texted me.

“Your a disgusting piece of shit,” she said. “You get rewarded for sitting on your ass, getting fat and doing nothing.”

“*you’re” is what I texted back to her.

I don’t care what she thinks about me. But her text illuminated a truth, and that truth is that now that I’ve become a mother, even those closest to me actually think that I do nothing all day. That could not be further from the truth, but I’m not sure the perception will ever change."
