i keep away from my dad. not easy when i'm at my parents' house for the summer holidays (can't afford to live on my own right now). but i have a very good reason to keep my distance. and he hasn't apologised for anything so i don't see why i should be expected to be nice to him, even if i'm never rude to him. maybe someday he'll start having nightmares about me and he'll realise what he's done to me, long term.
Sometimes I wish I could be away from my parents too for summer breaks. The only time I'm actually away from my parents is during the fall and spring because that's when school is in session and I attend a school far from home. Luckily I gotta go back soon so I'll finally be away from my parents again for a while (yesss lol)! I feel really bad for you though. Your dad sounds worse than mine. I don't know much to say but good luck avoiding your dad and hope all goes well for you.
Losing your sight is not a small deal. I am sure it did scar him for life. I don't know how he lost it, but it could also have affected.
In which aspect is he more demanding? On having you do things for him? or other things? If talking isn't a fix, then I am sure there's other fixes you can find.
Also, does he know brail?
More on having me do things. He has other sons and a daughter there too, but he always come to me first. I know I was the spoiled one, but it'd be nice to have a break from his orders once in a while and just leave me alone. He gives me long lectures about stupid little things too and often repeats himself, which I hate. And no he doesn't know brail.
Well I don't really. Haven't seen them for many years. My last contact was my Mother calling me to let me know she is dying and the last contact with my Father was rather physical and he was on the worse end of it.
I don't think either of these points is particularly helpful but you did ask.
Not really to be honest, but thanks for sharing anyway.
Your dad is having a hard time coping with being blind. It sucks to have something like that taken away suddenly. Is he able to care for himself.
True... sometimes, but not always.
Atleast you have a dad.
I guess you're right. A lot of people do need a father. While my dad may not be the greatest, I still gotta learn to tolerate it. Did you grow up having one at least?
