My brother and I were treated very differently, and still are. We both have social anxiety, and yet, she constantly goes out of her way to help him with shit, like making doctor's appointments, while I've always been told to do it myself and deal with it. I've come to the conclusion that it's likely it's a cultural thing with my family, where females are supposed to be the "strong" head of household and deal with their own, and everyone else's, shit without complaining. So my brother tends to get special treatment in that way. And when it comes to me, she wants me to be exactly like her. Just as well, there's things that I'm sure he's felt like I get special treatment on, and I wouldn't be surprised at all if that were true. Truth is she's fucked both of us up pretty severely in the parenting department.
