    I'm sitting here with my dad.

    He just turned 70 and is high on marijuana which is legal here now and I'm 30 also stoned but I'm also on 3meopcp a drug very similar to Pcp. It is also legal. I wish I knew what he was thinking when he brought me up. I wish he had advice.

    My Dad Doesn't Talk to Me

    I have no idea why my dad doesn't talk to me. Growing up, it was explained away as "He's quiet." It seemed that he didn't talk to anyone and never ever said a word. Why should I be any different? Do you know how awkward it is to shop for Father's Day or a birthday or Christmas...

    Im 22 now and my dad is 65. The past year has made me realised that my dad has never taken an interest in my life. Throughout school, college, university and now my working life he has never asked me what I have been doing or how I am doing. Recently it has really got to me and...
