It seems like my mother wants me to be forever disabled. Why is this?
She applied for me to get a disability payment from government years ago, even though a lot of people think I can work perfectly fine and that my mom is just using me because she's very unwell. I was diagnosed autistic before I turned 5 but I've come such a long way (I'm 25 now) and study full time.
Whenever I have doctor appointments she emphasises and exaggerates my weak points and areas I struggle with.
Why is this, and has anyone else experienced similar?

Don't allow her to hold you down. Live the best life you can!

1. She is in it for the money
2. She Munchausen by Proxy
3. She thinks the stigma of disability overrides common sense
4. She gets some satisfaction out of being a devoted mother to a disabled child
5. She is out of touch with expected norms.
She can't "keep you disabled" forever. At 18, you can demand your independence and forge out on your own.

An Excessively Over Protective, Neurotic, Nut! Some moms have their obsession to control someone forever!
How about you pray to GOD and ask God for a way to live your own life?
