What should I do? I’m his flesh & blood

0

I have left-sided cerebral Palsey and I still live with parents but they split several years ago. Part of my disabillity means that I have to have specially adapted footwear that hospital makes from a own set of shoes/trainers. My dad knows this and one pair of mine had lying around in his car for six-seven months waiting to be dropped off to the hospital. (By the way I can’t drive.) I kept reminding him quite a few times. I also help at my dads and he went away for a few days and he rang the work phone and he was like “Do you actually need them?” and “who said?” I felt really angry and felt like hanging up on him but I didn’t.Though he did drop them eventually. I had to put my foot down. Then I’m trying to sort my college courses out for September and they told me to go in on a open day which was only that spefic day or the other day was when was going away. He was like “Can you go another day?” Because he had to drop me off to my uncles. He doesn’t make me his priority. Then theres other times when he and his partner have had a arguement and he’ll lie to me saying that he’s at the hospital making me think the worst because he wants a easy life. I also think his partner has a problem with me being with my Dad as we recently went to his uncles house and his partner rang and he said to her “Gina’s with me because she fancied a drive” I was fuming because does there have to be a reason to spend time with your own flesh and blood? I don’t think so. I’m living at my mums because of his partner. There’s only so much i can take. I don’t know what to do anymore. I tried talking to my dad several times and he doesn’t want to know. What should I do?

Blood does not negate wrongdoing. If he doesn't want to be in your life, then nobody is breaking his arm and forcing him to be. Talk to your mother or guardian and tell them how you feel, tell them everything, full disclosure, and tell them it may be time to burn that bridge.

I'm really sorry but he is my Dad and I have a disabillity. in my eyes it does. Blood is everything and he is a alcoholie and after everything. he always comes running when he makes his own mess.
