Can I sue my mom if I was born with obvious signs that she neglected her pregnancy with smoking, drinking and possibly drugs?

Question Details: Yet I was never taken to get the medical issues fixed. I have suffered with deformational issues, breathing problems, psychological issues and neglect whenever i needed anything. I never got insurances or surgery that I needed and didn't understand what to do. Now after reading up on things, my problems are bad and I can't function at all to keep anything in life. She's also taken my SSI checks from my dad's death to send me to military school when she married again and I didn't like my stepfather. I lost over $36,000 that would have at least helped me get a start in life.
