I haven’t felt too well recently. It’s felt hard to talk and sometimes I feel mute. I’m usually not allowed to talk, I just sit behind people while they talk. But I’m still considered rude if I get up to leave or look at my phone. It’s an unspoken rule between me and my older brother that I do not talk, I clean, I stay out of his way because as he says “I don’t give a f*ck about your little stories or animations, they do not matter to me. They aren’t even good.”
Ive learned not to ask him about his day or bring him water while he studies anymore because he usually just says the above no matter what I’m doing.
No one else in my family knows about this unspoken rule, but it would be hard to tell them because they walk past me like I’m a ghost.
