Unhappy I hate living with this anger, i dont no how to but i no i have to!

Im not sure where to start with this or where its gonna go but here goes!

I feel angry most of the time, i have been through a very hard childhood, and my adulthood hasnt been much look either! Im 31 yrs old and had my daughter when i was 19, she is beautiful and well behaved although she is coming into her teens she is a good girl.
This whole anger thing i have decided to take into my own hands, as i have been to see doctors, i have been to see councilers and nothing has really helped. I have been going to the doctors for the last three years telling him i am not depressed i am Angry! He offers my anti depressants and once he gave me a questionaire consisting of 10 questions. First one being do you feel like not getting out of bed on a morning and do you feel suicidle? to me these questions did not relate to my feeling so bloody angry and frustrated all of the time these feelings result in me crying and YES then feeling depressed un noing what the hell to do to fix myself!
My anger is now effecting my daughter who is very aware of how i feel, my partner can hardly stand to be around me and has moved back with his parents although our relatonshpi is still there i cant see it lasting much longer. I shout and scream, i throw things and break things, my head feels like its gonna explode like someone has swithched a button. Anything at all can start me off. My anger spells can last from as little as 5 mins and last as long as a whole day, then it only stops because i have exausted myself. I dred it happeneing and try my best to breath deeply but before i no it i have had a major flip out and cant control it at all what so ever. I wish i new why i felt like this, i wish i could control it. The last thing i want is my own daughter to hate me because of this and i think if it goes on much longer then it will effect her own life when she is older. I have never been without this anger in my life its been there for as long as i can remember, but i can truley say the older i get the worse it becomes and i hope and pray that i will get some peace of mind some day. Just reading some of peoples threads on here today has helped me get over a little outburst i had earlier. Just to no there are other people that have simular feelings and i am not alone has helped me today. 2morrow is a new day maybe ill be better tommorow!

Thanks for letting me vent im sure im gonna be back with more, i could write a book if i new how i think that may help lol!!!!!

Hi Tizzy, I think that you know what has made you mad about your past. With your previous therapists did you all ever go over this? I think that with processing your anger that you can lay it to rest.

Re: I hate living with this anger, i dont no how to but i no i have to!

Hi Tizzy, I don't have advice but I know how you feel. I have had anger issues for as more years than you are old. I've never been on antidepressants because they always trigger migraines or make me feel worse. Anger is so frustrating & debilitating. If I had one piece of advice it would be do not get a partner that is an opposite of you. My DH & I are total opposites & it has drove me to madness for 40+ years. I guess it is mostly my fault but everything he does or doesn't do drives me crazy. I like neatness, he could care less if everything's a mess. I clean up he makes a mess. Maybe that just the way DH are but I can't take it. Surround yourself with people that are a positive for you. Keep us posted.

Re: I hate living with this anger, i dont no how to but i no i have to!

Hi there, when you said "The last thing i want is my own daughter to hate me because of this and i think if it goes on much longer then it will effect her own life when she is older..... I have never been without this anger in my life its been there for as long as i can remember...." Well that says quite a bit!I've always been interested in the cycle of what gets passed down. If you notice most of us hang on to resentment (it appears we're locked into it so to speak)-but the chilling thing is, most will never examine themselves enough to go beyond recognizing it; but that means they won't be a contributor in their life time to arrest it. That's powerful.You don't seem to be concerned with just yourself here- the step in breaking it? I've dealt with anger as well and I can tell you that it is as damaging as any other problem no matter where it originates...it doesn't just wear off all by itself.
I happen to be writing... about my background (helps to understand it better?)...and this area or topic is pretty much what I have been zeroing in on. If you don't mind, the way I describe it is like a serum infused upon inception. If you look at it like this it may help to remove yourself from the hold we have on others. Maybe those who have refused to take responsibility back up on the chain for one reason or another found a battle too difficult or challenging? If you think for a moment it's simply easier to distract and spin things a bit than have to personally take responsibility? Well then you come along and your overwhelmed at sorting through the mess...you have to wade through it??? Your anger is in response to all this crap. Don't worry, there is hope but I've said enough for now...Gina-

Hi all and thanks all im shocked at my replys i thought id be waiting for weeks for even one...

Today has been a really bad one for me, i have caused a major row with my other half and kicked my door through in the living room, taken it off the hinges and thrown it outside! Although i no its a stupid thing to do and my own fault i still did it. I feel a little better anger wise but totally disgusted in my actions! How do i explain the missing door to my daughter when she comes home tommorow! I am such a idiot!

Gina, alot of what you said made me think deeply, i no i have alot of rooted problems that stem from even before i was born. My father was violent to my mother and all my other brothers and sisters. I am one of 15 children from my father.
My mother was one of 3 women when she met him and put up with alot from him. Fortunatley when i was 2 years old my mum was able to break free from him with me sitting on one knee and a carving knife in the other hand until the police came. Joke is when they did come they would not even arrest him until they seen him strike at my mother. We were both covered in blood my mums lip was split underneath where he had kicked her in the mouth and her teeth punctured threw her lip. For years after that i would not even be held by another man even my grandad whom i loved so dearly.
My mother re married and had other kids, the man she married never treated me like his own and did sick twisted stuff to me that i dont care to mention right now. From this i no that is where i started to go off rails and i suppose i was a angry child. I was Known as a bully at school and people feared me although i think i just stuck up for everyone that was beeing bullied i was branded one. I was always fighting and getting into trouble. When i was 14 my mum said she had, had enough and even though i had not seen my father for 12 years she called him, had him come pick me up and shipped me off to blackpool to live with him and 2 of his women and 7 of my other brothers and sisters. Ill never forget the fear and the silents that came over me on the drive there, somthing i could never put into words. When i got there it was like i was in somkinda other world. My father had told everyone i was not to be spoken to until the morning, showed me my room for the night and shut the door! i was terrified. All night i remember thinking 'hes gonna just come in and kick me about in a minuet' i finally got to sleep in the fetal position rocking until i driffted off. As soon as the light hit the curtians my eyes sprung open. I just waited to here some one else voice hopfully not my fathers. what was 10 minuets must hav felt like hours befor i heard a sound. I heard my little sister ask if it would be ok to see me now. 'Yes' my father replyed tell her to get a wash and show her how things work in the house. WOW i was shocked, maybe things will be ok??? There were rules and regulations in the house what we all had to stick to. Starting with mornings and going to the bathroom in order, keeping towels and flanels in order, washing in detol, making my bed folding my cloths, waiting for inspection before we could even go down stairs. Breakfast time was another set of rules, who sat where, who could eat what, who poured the milk, who washed the dishes, who scrubbed the floors.
On the first day i was there he had to go and work after breakfast.
As soon as every on was sure he had gone it was like everyone took a deep breath and said thank god for that. The sounds of laughter filled the room and my sisters and brothers jumped all over my loving me and fighting over my attention. My older brother told me to come upstairs so their mothers couldnt here what they were saying. They all sat me down and after asking me what i had done wrong at home they told me a few do's and dont's. They told me that dad had asked everyone to be ready tonight for the family meeting about me. They told me how he still beat them and things he did to their mums. Expectations he had from them. There was talk of another sister being close by but they had never meet her yet. I remember thinking to myself i wish i was a grown up so i could take them all away from these nasty things. I knew i could not stay in that house. The family meeting happened anyway and it wernt as bad as i thought just flarred nostrils from him and a slightly rased voice now and again but i think he controld his anger pritty well that day. A few days had passed and then another meeting was called i new this was gonna be a bad one i could see the fear in everyone. He had found out i had been to the phone box to keep begging my grandad to come fetch me. I dont no how he new but i just new it!
He sat me on a chair while everyone was in the room watching, he then got a stool and put it on both my feet and sat on it! He had a hammer in his left hand and his face was evil. Im not quite sure why but i was not frightend but i just felt as angry as he did. he shouted and yelled at me and then from nowhere i just started shouting and yelling back. Im not even quite sure what i said actully. Then he beat the hammer on both of my knees and after offered it to me in my hand. I grabbed it straight away then he yelled and what you gonna do with it!. At that point i turned around to everyone else they looked scared. 'Somthing was telling me right then to just hit him hard in the head with it then he wont cause anyone anymore pain. I looked him straight in the eye, he came right upto my face pointed to the side of his head and said go on if you think you can do it. I threw the hammer to the floor and ran out the house as fast as i could didnt look back just kept running towards the phone box. Phoned grandad and told him what happened just as id finished i heard his car pull up.. My gandad was on the way so i didnt care what he did now, i got in the car and he drove me back to his house, once again a fearful silence. I got back and said my grandads coming im getting my stuff. He didnt atempt to stop me but called me all the names under the sun. Grandad arrived with my stepdad, and my auntie in about 1hr flat. My dad invited them in like nothing had even happened, just kept saying if you take her now she will never learn and telling them they let me get away with to much. Grandad was as red as a tomatoe i could tell he just wanted to lash out but didnt coz of respect for the children present. That journey home i was when i realised that even though i had not grown up with him my father i had got somthing the other children hadnt and probly the worst thing possible his temper!

WOW just read over this and its such a short story to the years that have passed if you no what i mean, maybe this is where all my anger stems from really but how do i no where to begin to stop it?.. There is so much more to this little story that makes me angry just thinking about it.
Maybe this is a start, here on this thread if it is then i suggest you all keep your reading glasses to hand coz ill be here for bloody months lol.
Glad i found this site i think it may work better then my bloody doctor!

Feeling a bit better after this, but am very annoyed at what i have done to my door and my boyfriend probley wont speak to me for a week!

Tizzy, keep writing, this is probably the best way to get all of your anger outside of you so that you can then just let it go! You were probably a very spirited child with a good fight in her, a survivor. I love spirited folks. I'll come back and read everything you write. Until next time......

Re: I hate living with this anger, i dont no how to but i no i have to!

Hi there. Well I've gathered you had a very rough upbringing to say the least honey. On the one hand it's a shame one has to fight and endure these things but on the other life simply comes out of death. I looked outside yesterday and saw a lovely Lychee tree, maybe about a foot tall growing right out of the soil- pig crap mixed with the earth. It has the potential to grow and bear beautiful tasty fruit though.
What you've done amounts to hurting yourself because you don't want to distance the ones you love right?
It makes me sad my life in many ways was perhaps wasted by the way I struggled so...but life indeed came from all that pain...a legacy you might say I could in turn pass down.
What comes to mind from what you've described is fear..hidden somewhere because anger is an attempt to control others and the situation at hand. It's quite effective for a time but wouldn't you rather be free and not contend with this burden? It's also an emotion but if there is really a way for you to be released (I believe this of course) then you can spare your offspring by breaking up some of the fallow ground....

Re: I hate living with this anger, i dont no how to but i no i have to!

Dear Tizzy, I read your story and I was moved by your plight. I know myself that anger is only protection from unbearable pain, and things that trigger your spells are caused by something getting too close to your painful buttons. Though it can be frightening, anger keeps a lid on all that sea of pain you carry inside you. Sannah is so right - keep on writing. When you blow up, as soon as you can, write down what was going on for you and what buttons you think were being pushed and so on. I think you will find that you know a lot more about what your anger is protecting you from than you think. Keep writing here, there is so much support from wonderful people here. Best wishes, Sera

Wink Re: I hate living with this anger, i dont no how to but i no i have to!

Morning, afternoon or what ever it may be, Thanks again for all the support people, makes me feel quite emotional to think i dont even no you all and that you have all taken time out to read my words....
Well i never had much sleep last night after my whole madness yesterday and i have woken with a headach and the reality of my actions. I ask myself how do i feel? Well i feel like crap and i feel angry with myself. I no how i acted was totally wrong and am dreading trying to explaine myself to my partner ill be lucky to even speak to him today i upset him so much.

I just wanna tell you alittle bit about myself and what my life is like at present. I see what i wrote yesterday and am shocked all of that came out of me.
Ok so, Im a 31 year old single parent i juggle 3 jobs, i call myself a mulitasker... My mother is disabled so i look after her do her cleaning take her where she needs to go, as my other 2 bro's and my sister dont pull there weight and still act like there 10yrs old. Infact my daughter helps her more then they do. None of them work at all and have only kept jobs for weeks long! They have all been spoilt and my mum still gives them money and a roof over there head. 2 of them still live with her and one of them doesnt age's 26,25 and sis is 21.
I have alot of friends around me from all differnt walks of life, from rich to poor. My closest friends i here from every day, they call me with their problems and i am able to listen and somtimes help in there situations. One of my friends is in a bad abusive relationship right now and calls me every morning at 9am to tell me what has happened to her the day before. I dont mind this but somtimes i dont actully speak at all untill its time to say goodbye its just yes, no, noway! I must have at least 4 people a day calling me with their problems, i feel bad to talk about my own, and because mine dont seem as surfaced as theirs its easy to listen, somtimes it makes me feel good for the day if i have helped. My close friends no alot about my childhood as most of them were there through some of it. They all no about my step father and my father and they all no how many kids hes got and how violent he is.

While i was trying to get sleep last night i was thinking about the things i had wrote and i got to thinking about, where i had written that i think my anger must have started before i was born! I really wonder if this is possible and that this is where the problem begins in the mothers whom? Maybe all her stress's and all the times my father hit her while she was carrying me, her fear, her anger? I have heard people speak of things like this before but i have never really thought about it this deeply. maybe it can really happen that way, and the cycle of life begins even before you have taken your first breaths. When i did manage to take my first breaths i came early into this world 8 weeks earlie and for the first six weeks of my life i was in a incubator because i was barley bigger then a bag of sugar.
My mother tells me storys of her time in hospital with me. Those days were quite tough for a women with a mixed race child. Then nurse on my mothers ward wouldnt let her hold me, the nurse had even changed my name to sophie on the ward and said my real name didnt suit me. whats all that about! Eventually the doctor came to visit mum and mum broke down say she hadnt even held me yet, the doctor marched her to where i was and put me in her arms or hands, she said the size of my head fitted perfectly into the palm of her hand.
Mum also told me about my fathers visit to the hospital when i was born, he just never nos when to stop does he! Apparently he seen me and said i was not his child as i was to fair in complection. He got violent in the hospital acusing her of cheating and was adament i was not he's. Security were called and my father was escorted from the premesis. Mum said this was a good thing coz she was able to go back to nan and grandads for a while when we left the hospital....

Ok guys i no that this probley dont make any conection with yesterdays story but im afraid i dont think ill be writing things in order im just writing and writing, feels good though! Ill be back to continue my jabber later.

hope you all have a blessed day xxx

Angry Re: I hate living with this anger, i dont no how to but i no i have to!

Im back already and im so friggin angry with myself, my fella called me and he has said he thinks we should stay away from eachother for a while untill i take steps to sort myself out. I didnt tell him about this coz i think he would think im stupid! I totally agree with him but feel furious at the same time and rejected, even though i no its for the best. I can see myself sending him some nasty text messages and making things even worse. Why would i even think to do that its sad. I hope i dont text him and i hope this feeling of guilt or rejection or a mixture of both goes away instead of making me act like even more of a total **** Argghhhhh!!!!

I have spoken to one of my friends today who has helped me alot by listening, she has offered me help of a counciler that has been helpful for her and her problems, she has offered this before but because of bad experiences i have had with shrinks in the past i never bothered, but she gaurentes me this lady will help me. Im gonna give it ago... Im not gonna stop writing here though!

Another thing that is getting on my nerves today is the state of my own bedroom, i feel like opening up the windows and throwing everything out! Im sure my room reflects on the way my mind is, a total friggin mess! Dont get me wrong im not a filthy person or anything, if you came to my house even though i aint got my door in the living room everything down stairs has its place and is clean and tidy, but upstairs is a mess so i dont let no one up there. I dont let my daughter have her friends upstairs either and thats sad coz she is always staying over at her mates and asking for her mates to stay. I really need to adress this i think it would make me happier and it would definatley make my daughter happier.....

My head is real busy now im thinking all kinds of stuff non of it making any scence and all because my bf has done the right thing in making a decision not to see me. I feel emotional and am now wondering how long this spout is going to last untill my anger takes over and i flip again. See i no its gonna come and it aint even happened yet its like im on my defences to myself fighting myself. WHY!!!!

Tizzy, do you feel a little overburdened taking care of your mother (when your sibs don't work and live in the house!) and then listening to your friends problems all the time? Maybe some of your anger is coming from this? Maybe you would feel that it is more fair if you do discuss your issues with your friends too?

Yes, I agree that babies are aware in the womb. They can hear and they become attached to their mothers in there. Babies already know the voices of their parents/sibs when they are born because they have been listening. This has been proven with studies. When my first was born everyone in the labor room was talking but when my husband spoke our daughter immediately turned her face to him. She recognized his voice! When your mum's adrenaline was surging from fear, anxiety and anger you felt that in there too. I remember when I was pregnant and I felt my blood sugar drop. You know how awful you feel when that happens. Well my daughter gave me one swift kick when she felt it too. She hardly ever moved or kicked either.

That is really bizarre how the nurse changed your name.

Don't worry about writing things in order. I think that it is best to talk about whatever is bothering you at the moment. We can follow along just fine.

Therapy is very helpful. I speak from personal experience.

Yes, cleaning up your upstairs sounds like a good idea. You will probably feel much better afterwards. You are in the cleaning out mode now! Cleaning out your head, your heart and your upstairs!

Re: I hate living with this anger, i dont no how to but i no i have to!

Third day in, still had hrdly any sleep. Some vile things are coming out my mouth this morning! Aint got much time to write coz i gotta go work and pretend to be all nice with my clients! somthing i could really do without! Ive got up noing its new years eve and i feel like killlin someone! I can tell you how my dayz gonna go after work and it aint gonna be good. Im feelin bex today at my partner, yes i lost control the other day, but he has told me he will support me. Where the **** is his support then? keeping away from me is that being supportive coz it feels like he is taking me for a idiot. I wont see him now again until all the festive **** is out of the way and hes had his fun. After that he will just expect me to be ok and us to pick up the pieces through a quick shagg. This good feeling only lasts a minuet dont he no things like that solve nothing. I cant keep sweeping things under the carpet! Am i wrong in being angry in him not being here for me now when i feel my most low. is he right staying away from me until he is ready?
Gotta go and play friggin listener again now yipee. My life is so friggin false!!!!!

Wink Re: I hate living with this anger, i dont no how to but i no i have to!

Ok so im on day four now and its supposedly a happy new year. Hope you all had a good night last night. I loaded myself with valium and slept the whole night away lol! Just wish i didnt have to wake up today in this same house same flippin routine!!!! Had no calls or messeges off my so called BF, still nothing! If anyone asked me today how do you feel i would definatley say depressed with anger brewing underneath!!
Not only him but everything in my sorry little life right now seems to be going from bad to worse. I wish i could learn to let things go instead of walking round with this feeling all the time i hate it!

Today should be a day for family right? well i have told you all about my violent dad. Because of him i dont get to see half of my family. They wont have anything to do with me because i speak to him, little do they no i only speak to my dad to get information about them. So were back to this again....

After i left my fathers house that day so long ago in blackpool. I never knew until years later i found out the day that i left my father beat both of his women and one of my brothers got it really bad too. This was because of me.
I feel awful coz when i was leaving i promised to keep intouch with my b&s and i didnt. I think i wrote one letter with photos, im sure they never recieved it. I do no though that my mother wrote father a letter saying lots of bad things that she must have wanted to get off her chest for many years. Years later it came to light that that letter also caused beatings and violents.
Years passed and i never heard anything from any of them not even father.
by this time i had had my daughter and done alot of living and growing up.
I tryed making contact with my dad, i wanted my little girl to meet her aunts and uncles. He did welcome us and we went to hes for the weekend. My eldest brother had also had a baby a little girl. So it was really nice to see everyone again.
They had all grown up even though i could still feel the fear in them. Being carful what they said and did while he was around. I can just remember him cutting the lorn while the kids were actully playing for once in the garden. He my father seemed to be tearful. When i asked one of his women what was wrong with him she said 'he is overwhelmed with his grandchildren' Huh! he wernt gonna get one minuet alone with my daughter!. They explained to me how he had changed and that things had been ok for a while. So that weekend stay was kinda a quiet one. I still did not feel comfatuble enough to be myself or let my daughter run around being herself. I could tell by peoples reactions to things if somthing was wrong the didnt have to say a word only giv a certan look. On my third day there i was starting to feel restless, in my heart i just wanted to ask him why he was the way he was with us.. I knew i could never ask those questions.
That day i had a call from my friend saying her and my other mate were coming over to blackpool for the day they said if i wanted i could come home with them instead of my dad making 2 journeys to take us home and drive back again. So thinking this would be easier i said yes. They came and got us and bought us home. I felt no way about it at all and tought it was all cool.

I had a call from father when i got back a few days later telling me what a selfish person i was and how much i had upset my B&S going home that day, he called me a pig and said i was no daughter of hes! I didnt sleep for a few nights after that thinking how this could have caused him to be violent to them again.
More years passed by and then i recived news that my fathers grandmother had died, she lived quite close to me so i seen her as often as i could, along with some cousins i seen now and again and my fathers brother, whom i always wished was my own father.
Arrangements where made for the funeral and the day had come to put my great grandmother to rest. I was late attending the church because of my partner being such a drip at driving and he took us to the wrong church. When we arrived grandma was being buried. I was so upset that i had missed it. I looked around at my brothers and sisters and none of them would even look at me. The rest of the service finished and we all made our way to the wake. When we got there dad had already arrived and seated, there were 2 seats left on that table and being his daughter i thought that the seats were for me and my partner. The feeling of hate and anger that day could almost be touched in the air. Not one of my brothers and sisters spoke a word to me and he didnt even look at me. It was horrible and trying to deal with the loss of nan azwell, i was bubbleing inside my feet were itching to go. I dont no how i managed to sit there until the end it was crusifing. All my B&S looked so scared to even speak to eachother. I made a effort to speak to them but it was made very clear the were not allowed to talk to me. That night i went home and sobbed and sobbed, for losing the love of my grandmother and i also felt i had lost the love of my B&S's. There was nothing in my power i could do, there was no way at all i could get to talk to them to tell them i loved them. Mostly there was nothing i could do to save them. I never tryed to contact any of them again after that day i thought it just pointless and all my efforts did was break my heart more.
I think it was around 3 yrs later i took my mother to see my dads brother coz the hadnt spoken for years. He wernt the one that really did the talking anyway it was his wife. Her and my mum got on well always did, so when they met up it was like they had 15 years to catch up on. To be honest i wish i wernt there coz i heard all the stories that day of my mum getting battered by father at nightclubs in carparks, shopping centers. In great detail. I think even mother herself had forgotten some of it. My aunt then went quiet and asked us if we had heard the damage father had done to my sister for not passing her tests at school. No was our reply we hadnt heard anything for years. She went on to tell us that he had beaten my sister so badly she was in intensive care for some time. At this point i got out of the chair and ran to the toilet to be sick. I remember mum coming in rubbing my back asking if i was ok. I turned to her and asked why and how he could do these things, i thanked her at that point for not letting me live like that. She held me tight and said NO ONE should have to live like that. NO ONE! At that moment i didnt quite no how to feel one part of me thought thanks to mum for getting me away and the other part wished i could have been there maybe i could have done somthing to stop it.
Back in the living room my auntie said to me you can go upstairs with your cousins if you like you dont have to sit through this. I felt like a little girl again, but no i said to myself im a big women an i need to no i need to here this and respond to it i think i was about 25 or 26 at the time. She carried on with the grusum story about my sister, this time her mother had finally got an injunction out on him to prevent him going with in yards from them. Because she had done that the other one of his women were very close to eachother, (if you remember i said previously they were eachothers support system). She also had the same injunction out on him. This was such a positive thing i slightly smiled, thinking at last they are free! I also wondered why i had heard nothing from my eldest brother telling me about this or just calling me to say he had gone from there life. I questioned my aunt and asked if she had heard anything from my B&S's. She said no and tryed to explaine to me that they were prob to terrified to talk to anyone right now that associated him with them. I understood this kinda, but was upset as to why noone had been intouch. As far as my aunt knew they hadnt seen him for several years, and had barley had any contact with him therselfs.
All that was running through my mind now was, i hope they really messed him up and i hope the police locked him up. I still dont no the ins and outs weather he got locked up or if the story was correct or what happened i dont think i ever will no.

I left it for another year, nothing! I had now meet my current partner who came and swept me off my feet showed me love i had never felt, as my previous relationships with men had ended up violent. This is another story i aint going into at this point. But yeah he came and saved my heart, i really thought he was or is the one, so gental loving and all the things i needed in a man!!!! He got to no me pritty well quite quickly and he was very interested in my past sittuation, he questioned me all the time about it and tryed to get me to deal with it by firstly taking me to see some other brothers and sisters from my father over in preston nr blackpool, there were another 2 women that way that had children from him 2 of them i had never met and were still very young, the one women took father in after everything that he had done or she didnt no what hed done at the time. This women had 3 children at the time off him youngest being 3 yrs now she would be 10yrs old....
Anyway, when we got there it didnt take me long to realise she was in a serious sittuation with him herself, i dont think it was as bad for her as the others to any extent, one because i new her brother was a police officer so im sure that somwhere he would have been reall carful to where his anger led with her. Thats what i thought!..... My visit there was lovely to be fair, my boyfriend said he had never seen me happier he could tell in my face he said how much i care about them. I didnt get to see father and i was bloody glad to be reall coz after all these years and all those feelings i wouldnt have known how i would of reacted and i was my own women now with a child and my partner, he could not have made me feel the way he once used to. Scared like a tourcherd little animal!
More time went past after our visit and my father had anounced to my uncle that he had got married, thus to his most recent women who was barley a few years older then me. Remember thinking what a big mistake this women had made...
Not long after that i had a nock at my door! It was him, he was not alone either he had 2 very big black men with him one standing either side of him, **** a brick i thought what the hell is all this now had he finally come to kill me???? He smiled and cuddled me, he said i hope you dont mind me turning up like this with my friends but they have come to support me, i am trying to make amends with you my children....... HUH WHAT! am i dreaming this or is it reall, im gonna wake up in a minuet!
I invited them in being my polite self offered them all a stiff drink coz i needed one myself. His friends sat down in the living room while my dad summonds me to the kitchen. He told me he had just come back from Jamaica visiting his brother who he hadnt seen for 43 years! He told me my uncle was a well known preacher over there and his time there had made him realise the error of his ways and the things that he had done to effect other people. I couldnt believe i was hereing these things it was crazy. I thought this the perfect oppitunity to ask about my other brothers and sisters and if he had seen them. He said he didnt want to go into that right now and what was important was i forgave him for things he had done to me and that he had missed me being in his life and wanted to see his grandaughter grow up. This completley changed my mind set. He was trying to pull the wool over my eyes here! I said again very clearly 'do you see my B&S's he replied no i havnt seen them for 10 years, but i see some of them meaning the ones that lived in preston. I then went on to say why not, thinking he may say somthing truful, no not him hes just full of it. He made up a story telling me there mothers had done him out of alot of money and then got rid of him. To be honest i wasnt shocked at the crap coming from his mouth coz i had heard so much bull from him over the years i dont think he new hisself when he was telling the truth. I started to blank most of what came after that. After he left i thought of lots of different reasons why he would come to me that day and not them. The best reason i came up with was that, coz he didnt do as much physical damage to to as them i was a easy target for him, to try and minipulate into believeing his finding of God or the errors of his ways! Really he had other plans in his mind for me as i was about to find out in weeks to come........

Thanks for listening guys im gonna leave it here right now, ill come back and finish up later. Thank you for just letting me get this crap out and dont think i dont here your replys its just that by the time i come to reply there is so much other crap there.. I do appreciate your time you take out.
I think im gonna go and have me a big glass of baileys and watch tv for a while, whilst im feeling quite calm now.


Happy new year every one xxx
