"alright dear can you go get whatever adult is here with you?"
"can you just tell me?"
"oh no I need to talk to an adult" so I go get my grandmother and they fucking go "alright just make sure she keeps brushing her teeth" I AM SIXTEEN. I CAN DRIVE. I LIVE ON MY OWN LIKE 10 MONTHS OF THE YEAR

"oh, sweetie, does this ever hurt you?"
"yeah I actually got codeine for it"
"oh...codeine? you know that's a serious drug, right? honey you know that you only use that when youre in really a lot of pain right?"

and they have to do something and they go
"alright dear now just raise your hand if youre in any pain" and then I DO and they go
"oh, youre not in any pain. that's just pressure. don't move" and put my hand back down.

I have a pretty high pain tolerance which u might be able to tell just by like looking at my history on the screen and also just like at my arms so please please believe me when I tell u something is wrong. aaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAA
This does not stop happening until you become a legal adult. And even then if u ask a weird question or make a request that they don't ~really~ want to comply with they give you a Look and sometimes make you repeat it. Like bitch, I know u heard me.

Part of it, like the making you go get your grandmother, is for legal reasons. Like, if you go home and something happens, they have to be able to say that they told an adult who can be held legally responsible or else they're liable.

The other part is just perception bias. tbh i look at my sixteen year old sister and i'm like 'look at this youngling. this innocent child. she has so little experience. she knows nothing', whereas sixteen year old me would have been irked if someone said that to me. \_(ツ)_/

Breathe some life into my bones
I've been lost and wandering
Down and out and missing home
