Continuing to try with my father

Hello again,

Last month I wrote about how my father had tried to get me to cosign on a loan for a wildcat oil drilling

Yep, I remember well. Sorry that no one I knew heard of this company. (we're in Texas.) Sure not one I'd invest in from what we do know. (hope you got my pm, never heard from you again, so I wasn't sure.)

I have broke from my parents many times, I think this time will stick. They rarely have my best interests at heart, either. (one of them never does.)

I'm sorry your father has hurt you like this. And glad you came back to update us....

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas regardless of him. OK?

Hello, Cat Alley,

First thanks for asking your family members if they'd heard of that company.

Hi,

Yes, I remember your other thread.

(((HUGS))). I remember your post. You are trying and he's not. Therefore there is absolutely no reason for you to feel guilty. Also that company sounds like a scam, so you're not doing him any favours by investing in that company. You would just be prolonging the inevitable - that he will fall flat on his face and end up more broke than he may already be.

I sent you a PM right around the time I sent two to someone on this board. She later told me she got two, with no name and no text. It hasn't happened in a couple of months that I know of. Hopefully the PTB at Ivillage worked that kink out.

If my father accused me of being responsible for my child's death, I'd do more than stop speaking to him. That's my temper, I guess.

I understand alot of what you have said. My father is very wealthy and powerful, and he used to have actual "groupie" types. They thought he was the best father ever, he walked on water...

He still has a few hanger-ons, but he's running out of people that really care. His loss.

I'm almost 50 and have had a lifetime to grieve, so I'm not really that hurt anymore. I get angry at hime sometimes (I still have to have some contact recently), but not really hurt anymore.

Your hurt is fresh, and for that I am sorry...

Keep writing to us. We'll do our best to help you through this.

Thank you for your reply. It's really something that your father has/had "groupie" types. Recenty, I talked to two first cousins of mine, who were both amazed to hear what my father's really like. In fact, one of them really had a hard time acceptin it, even though she's never been close to my father. I am amazed by how many people seem to need to believe that all families are like the Brady Bunch.

Well, if you felt the need to talk to your cousins and if it made you feel better, that's okay.

I think a break financially is always in order once a person moves out of their parents house.
