So my youngest sister Lynn video called me tonight. She received a letter addressed to me care of her at her address. I was intrigued. Who knows me but not my address. It was hand written. A letter from my biological father who I have not seen in 12 years nor spoken to. It said
I love you and miss you.
first off, I have been referring to this man by his first name for over a decade. He lost all rights to be called "Dad" by me. The man I call "Dad" is my stepfather. He picked up the pieces after I was left shattered by bio father. Bio father abused and neglected me and my siblings the entire time he was in my life. The last time I spoke to him I told him I didn't want him in my life. You'd think that would stop all contact. He sent me several letters over the years one I read one I left unopened and remained as "return to sender". I want to send him a letter detailing the abuse he put me through. That because of him I am terrified of getting close to men. That I have ptsd partly due to the abuse I suffered at his hands. HOW DARE HE CONTACT ME AFTER I MADE IT CLEAR TO HIM I DONT WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH HIM!!! I am steamed right now. Lynn has a very good relationship with him. She doesn't remember the abuse and is vulnerable and easy to manipulate. She fell for the lies. On one hand I am so glad she doesn't remember the abuse. On the other I wish she remembered because she would know what a horrible human being this man is.
so I'm wondering would you send a letter back again expressing your disdain and explain you remember the abuse, or leave it be?
i will consider all comments but I know in the end it is my decision.
thanks for reading

I joined this board sons ago but rarely post. I have bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder as well as anxiety. I usually stay on the bipolar board as it is more active but of late has been rather dead. So I came back here to be supportive and maybe get support. I just finished a two and a half week nurse aide training program and battled very high anxiety but am proud to say I...
