I'm sure a lot of you don't know what i mean by i love my dad. it's not incestual or like that.  but people who know my story think i hate him. He was always an neglectful father and he's in jail until my 17th birhtday , july 3rd 2007-- i wish i knew people that knew what it was like to have an alcoholic, jail-bird dad like me.

Not exactly the same but here goes...People who know about my childhood too assume I must hate my Dad the truth is despite him being on and off of drugs since I was 5 and having just gone to prison for the first time at the end of last month I will always love him because he always fought to keep me, always done his best despite his own problems and when he's clean he's amazing and when he's not I'm there to help him. Like your Dad its the underlying addiction that encourages them to do bad things and it doesn't mean he loves you any less. I'd like to say this isn't a sob story it may be hard at times but you can turn that to your advantage I'm going to be the first person in the whole both my parents familys to graduate from uni this year and I am who I am because what some would call neglectful I refer to as enlightened x

i dont no what your life is like at all, ive never been through anything like this, but i can try and understand, it must be hard for you, of course you love your dad, neglectful or not, loving our dads is like a natural thing<br />
