Hi Everyone, I'm back again- my situation has once changed again. Quick recap of background, I ended up cutting ties with my dad, his wife and her kids and my sister because, well many reasons, but mainly they were toxic to me and my husband. I could go on literally for ever but we dont have all day. It had been over a year since I last spoke with them, and then i got a phone call from my stepmom saying my dad had cancer. I wasnt sure what to do, but my gut told me to call him so I did. We talked- not about anything too deeply, and we finally saw him for the first time about 2 weeks ago after his surgery. He is doing well. Now we are back at square one. Even at the hospital my step mom had to take a jab at me- just couldnt help herself. Really, my hubby and I were there for my dad- no one else. And I have a bad feeling this bullshit is gonna start up ALL over again. I am now expecting a baby- and aside from not wanting to deal with the stress, I will not expose my child to their shitty way of communicating and bullshit ways. Right now I am keeping it to phone calls. Nothing else. Because they are like sharks- they will drag you to deep water and leave you there to drown. I'm due in January, and they live a state away (thank god). So christmas we dont need to worry about, but what about other holidays- do we go? Do we stay where its safe so to speak? It always has to be on their terms because ya know, they are always right and we arent. I want to protect my growing family and myself. I dont know what to do.
