Growing up my dad hasn’t been the most supportive and he never seems to think any of his children are going anywhere. He’s never believed in me. Deep down I know he cares about me but it doesn’t changed the fact that he’s been emotionally hurtful my whole life. I was diagnosed with a lifelong disease a while back and it’s been extra hard for me ever since. Even getting out of bed in the morning has been a challenge. I try not to be hard on him because I know things are tough for him too. I shouldn’t put blame on him because I know it isn’t actually his fault. It’s just been hard to be in the right state of mind when you aren’t feeling your best physically either. But I found this website as a place to vent and I can be grateful for that.
