22 January 2021 Call-In

I have a very unusual situation stemming from genetics that is complicating on what to do with my family. My parents have been married nearly 40 years but 2 of the 3 children are blind/partially blind because of a rare medical disease. My mother was incorrectly pronounced sterile after my brother's birth, I was carried to term against medical advice, and (like something out of a book) born with 20/20 vision.

I've spoken about this with a friend of mine and he has urged me multiple times to present it to you despite how no-win it seems. I've had very little to do with my siblings while growing up because of the age disparity and also because as a kid I honestly had no idea how to approach interacting with the sensitive issue of disability and took my Dad's answer of just not saying anything.

Fast forward to the present, I am 29, my brother 35, and my sister 39. My brother is currently facing felony charges for being caught with heroin while his one working eye is on the verge of giving out, my sister is chronically obese (~40+ BMI), and I'm doing relatively well for myself despite the ongoing chaos (exercising, reading, self-improvement stuff). I have been haunted for the longest time as to why I came out so radically different from my siblings but such talks have never gotten me anything beyond the reminder that it's not worth digging up (I have tried three times).

Given how avoidant my parents have been in avoiding any kind of discussion as to why these endings are what they are, I wanted to request on how you would go about how you would set behavioral standards for these disabilities since my guess is that it's from my inability to answer the "you don't know what it's like to be blind" excuse that led here. An outside opinion on this from someone who's heard other adverse stories I think would hold higher value than anyone I currently keep in contact with.

Any insight that you can offer would be of great help, I'm likely going to have to be the one to bury all of them within the next five years so some help of what (despite disability) can be used to discern poor choice from victimhood is needed.
