You are not lame, you are human. Caring is what makes people kind and lovable. They are lucky to have you. Wish we could help you in some way. I'm afraid being here to listen and offer virtual hugs will have to do.

Thank you so much I kinda needed to vent and feel better for it virtual hugs are more than fine Smile

RE: The Official Crying Thread
The month of February gets me down in the dump every year. Not sure why, but I really wish that I had the option of just hibernating the month away.

Don't let those gnomes and their illusions get you down. They're just gnomes and illusions.

I call it funk month. It's just hardening me to take on April, the cruelest month.

.



.... Oh and my 72 yo fixed income Social Security and Medicare Mom had to take legal guardianship of my nephew from my brother's ex-wife/widow. Bro's ex-wife went from carrying Louis Vitton purses to living in a Super 8 unable to support her own children. Makes me sad. Everything is just so tenuous, spider webs holding everything together. God should've use duct tape. Double doses of meds today.

And fuck February. .... April too.

But I still miss him, the way he used to be before he got back on alcohol, he was clean for the first ten years of my childhood. After that my mother broke up with him and I rarely saw him because he was in and out of jails/rehabs. But he was still my father and it hurts knowing I'll never see him again. I have two younger sisters who taunt me about missing him. They say "awww you miss your daddy don't you?". He was their father too. I understand they weren't as close to him, but do they have to mock such a normal human emotion as grief? That my own family can be so callous to me hurts deeply and the fact that my ar is gone and I'm the only one that seems to care, makes me cry. And that I feel like my sisters aren't capable of empathizing with anyone, even me their own flesh and blood.
Jerseygirlar, I'm both alcoholic and ? bipolar and have two sons in their twenties its incredibly hard to stay sober and the fallout can be hard for families to deal with as you point out. I have been lucky with my sons as they accept me for who I am and appreciate the effort I go to to stay sober and mentally fit, it doesn't always work but for the most part it does, sounds to me like you were one hell of a daughter and although your sisters are being beastly now its quite possible they just have not dealt with your dads death, try to suspend judgment on them as I suspect that in the future they are going to need you, alcoholics can be a pain in the ass and hugely disappointing try not to be too angry with them.
