    I went through a lot with my birth father, and while it wasn't as bad as other people have had it, it was bad enough for me to stop talking to him. He put myself and my mother through so much, and I hated him with every ounce of my being for the longest time. But now, I forgive...

    I Wanna Say Me Too.

    But I can't do that right now.  I long for the day where I can.  This man has caused me so much grief and issues.  I haven't been to a therapist yet, but I imagine they'd run off after one meeting with me.  I am so ****** up because of him...

    My Dad
