    Might Be Out Of Place In This Group But.

    Here's why.What if I lose him? Then I'll lose the part of my family I never got to know. Another half of me, vanished so quickly. Then I'll lose the chance to learn who this man is who never learned me. I'd lose this sense of abandonment, and be filled with Regret? Pain? Guilt...

    It's Not Getting Any Better

    In November of 2008, my dad suffered a minor stroke.  No biggie, right?  My dad is only 49 and was 48 at the time.  I was at an Australian Pink Floyd concert.  All day I had this deep, nagging feeling that I shouldn't go.  About an hour into the show, I...

    I am. I truly am.. My dad always had been there

    for me and he is so nice. I'm afraid of losing him without him knowing how much I love him. He tags those three words on the end of every text he sends me and at the end of every day. "I love you."

    He's an alcoholic, going through a bottle of

    wine a day. He's been to A.A. countless times and he has schizophrenia and won't get sober long enough to take his meds. He looks bone thin and near death. But he wants nothing to do with me and I don't know how, or even if I can, help. What do I do?!?!?!?!
