I have a dad who doesn't care.
When I was littler I meant the world to my dad. He would do whatever to spend time with me. He would always tell me he loved me and he would always give me hugs and kisses on the cheek. But as I got older he started not to care. When he was my age he was doing drugs and drinking but when I was born he stopped. He still drank but not a lot. When I was six my dad had already gone through about 10 jobs. He couldn't keep and job and take care of his family so my mom kicked him out by the didn't care. About 5 months later he moved back in and he was drinking more. The same stuff kept happening till I was 12. My mom just got tired of him and divorced him. So he moved to Arkansas with my uncles. At first he called me every day but he slowly stopped calling. He called my sister and talked to her but he never called me. He never even made an effort to come see us. About a year later he moved to Texas. But when he did he started drinking way more than he ever had. He was buying a 6 pack a day. Sometimes two. A few months passed and he got advicted and moved in with my grandmother. She raises my two cousins. When he moved in with her he started buying 12 packs everyday. He was getting drunk every night. He still is. He met a new girl and they are currently dating. She has a baby to. He treats her baby more like a daughter than he does me. He's always blowing me and my sister of so he can get drunk with his girlfriend. I don't even remember the last time he said I love you. I want to tell him how bad his drinking has gotten but I'm scared to. I don't even really see a point. Recently he was supposed to pick me and my sister up but instead he got arrested for DWI. I think I should just throw him out of my life completely cause he's causing me all this pain. I cry my self to sleep a lot cause of him not caring about me anymore. I love my dad to death but he doesn't love me anymore. He lies to me and he gets mad when he has to spend money on me cause that's his "beer money". I just don't know what to do about him. I'm afraid that he's gonna end up dying cause of all the drinking he's doing. I need to tell him but Im scared he's gonna end up doing something to me that will really hurt me.
