    Dad I'm sorry we've not spoken in a long time.

    You need to get yourself together

    and realize that when I get mad at you when you're drinking it's because all you did was drink when I was little. It makes me so mad when you drink I just hate it!!! You don't know when to stop! One drink is okay. Two...fine. But two 6 packs is not okay!!! You turn into someone...

    Why? Why did you have to hurt mom and grace and just yell at me and tell me I was worthless? Why didn't you leave them be? Why did you choose the drugs over us and grace over me? Why did you drag Houston and Anthony into thîs? And my last questions are why. Am I still not good...
