This is a painting of a cabin my mom is selling.

Parents who ruin their childrens lives.

Ever since I was little my Grandparents were who I looked to for support, love, and friendship. When they died in the early 90's my parents began a threefold attack on ME, the one who got along the best with them. Because my mother saw the bad side of her parents and I saw their good side (after the booze) and because I drank like my Grandfather, I was put thru about 20 years of hell so far.
My mom got everything because my Grandpa died first. He had everything outlined the way he wanted it go down. But Grandma was losing oxygen to her brain and began blaming Bryan for not paying her back for a loan in the 70's. I;m not 100% sure it was paid back, but I know half of it was and she did not keep records of that. Anyway, the rest of the family used that to deny my existence and basically kept me locked up so they could do as they pleased without interference from the responsible one who they tried to play off as irresponsible. I lost two properties while they used their power to destroy me. They sold Grandma's house right away for $20,000 to $30,000 less than market value. They sold the Cranberry Farm my Great Grandpa bought and converted. They sold Motor Homes, Boats, their house. Now Mom, the only one left wants to DUMP the Lake Place. I know I can get anywhere from half to a Million for this place, but she is going to sell it to a friend for far less, because she is listening to my RICH uncle and aunt who are also trying to make my life miserable.
I thought being sober the last almost 7 years would fix things, but they are just getting worse. Ten years ago I had my left knee popped out backwards and footdrop. They'd come a couple times a month to the Nursing Home for the Polka stuff and walk right past me for six months. Then they used their power and stuff I told them in confidence about my use of drugs in the 70's to get me cut off my pain meds I need the rest of my life and I had the fight of my life to even get a little from a doctor.
I am wearing out. Did I say I am one of the most productive artists on the Iron Range? But I can't seem to sell anything. I couldn't get out of the house for 10 years. They've kept me boxed in and in CHRONIC PAIN. I NEED HELP, before they completely RUIN my life here. My dad is gone now, so it is all on my mom and she is getting worse, not better.

That slowly changed me into the person I am today. Things don't "happen to me." People don't "do things to me." I went from being a victim to taking charge of my own life and destiny. My quality life is not dependent on those around me - it's up to m

I must say that my life once sounded like yours. Maybe not the family dynamics but certainly the feeling of being powerless. What changed my entire outlook was getting some counseling, with a focus of looking at me and why I respond/react to events.

Oh, How would you also like to be the FOCUS of a Drug War? For 30 years already. A war that should have never been started and that NOONE seems to be BRIGHT enuf to STOP. I can stop this bullcrap. BUT, peeps like anonymous aren't helping me.

Well, Anonymous, you are not me. I am explaining events here, not blaming. You ought to look me up Google style before making two cent comments anonymously. Have you also been in pain and cannot get your pain meds? You come off as the "whiner" here.

I think you need to stop blaming others for the life of your own. I have grown up being the black sheep, alcoholic home with also physical abuse. I have chosen my own road and destiny.

I didn't finish cause I got drained writing this article, but my plan to make this place and myself famous by having it on my wall, with their campsite at McKinley Park, thereby making it worth more, she is going to sabotage. Signed; Bryan Klabunde
