I Hate My Dad

I don't know where else to go or who to talk to. I hate my father, I'm 20 years old and I just want him dead. The first 10 years of my life were ok, but when I was in 5th grade, he cheated on my mom, he flirted with the lady right in front of me. Anyways, he is a control freak, and miserable. If he's in a bad mood then he will go out of his way to make sure everyone is in a bad mood. He even tries to turn my boyfriend  against me at times. He is desrespectful to my mother and me, he calls us names, like stupid, waste of space, good for nothing. I can't stand it! I can't afford to move out, I'm on the H U D list, that's how desperate I am, but its a 2 yr waiting list. Does anyone know what i am going through or has some helpful advise, because I'm at the point where I just don't want to live anymore.

This is how i feel. My dad is also a complete control freak and tries to get everyone against me. I've never done anything wrong to him. He has cheated on my mom, beat her..he has beat me. And he's is not even a drunk or addicted to any kind of drugs. It makes no sense to me. He has called me every name in the book. I'm 17 and he and I are ready to kill each other.<br />

The best thing you can do is keep to yourself. Don't let him get to you. Don't let him control you. Stay with a friend if thats possible. You're 21, you can call the cops and have a restraining order on him. Just don't let him bring you down.

SUFY- Stand Up For Yourself ;) Show your dad that he can't take control of your life like that.

i dont really know what ur going through but i can definitely imagine. i have bad experiences when it comes to dads..:/
