I know this is an old thread but I just wanted to share my story about being disowned and completely abandoned by my own family. It is so painful and distressing.
I was kicked out of home by my Mum, Dad and two younger siblings. My other sibling who lives interstate played a big part in convincing my parents to kick me out. I was homeless for two months and only now am in an insecure sub-letting situation.
I did not do anything to warrant being kicked out without having nowhere to go. They didn't care about this they also know how sick I have been for the past few years having been in hospital 6 times in 3 years due to my mental health.
I have never lived out of home before and do not have independent living skills. I am a NDIS participant and on Newstart.
What hurts even more is that it is bad enough being kicked out of home but they are not there at all to support me. My Dad has called me occasionally but only to tell me not to speak to anyone in the Lebanese community about what has happened. Basically, he is trying to control and emotionally abuse me by trying to intimidate me into not talking to anyone. My Dad has abused me over the years in so many ways, he has abused me physically, emotionally, financially.
I tried asking my Dad for help with practical things like washing, helping me with food and he makes empty promises saying he will help but he never comes through there is always an excuse. I can't deal with that anymore. I don't appreciate my father saying he will help and then not helping.
I went on facebook and saw that my Mum, Dad and two younger siblings are having a family dinner at a Lebanese restaurant, that really hurts to think they don't want to include me. It hurts because I haven't been able to eat, drink, shower or do any washing due to my severe anxiety and depression. I haven't had a proper meal in weeks and they know that.
When I was stuck because I needed to wash and dry my bed sheet, I asked my Uncle if I could go and use this washer and dryer, that got back to his brother my Dad and my Dad told me to go to a laundrymat and not bother my Uncle.
My Dad previously promised he would come to visit and bring me home cooked meals every night and that hasn't happened either.
How am I going to survive this pain? I don't have any friends or partner. I am completely alone.
