Losing My Mind

I've been under a lot of stress since the beginning of December. My father, is someone who lives in his own world so to say. I know he means well but he drives me insane!! Does every daughter say that about her father? Dad has basically kicked me out of my apartment and proceeded to take it over like it is his. From moving my decor around so he can fit his stuff on my shelves, to hanging pictures up on my walls, to going through my dressers, throwing away things that I've kept for years that mean the world to me, anything that can test my patience, he is doing.

I live in a high rise and even though I am a social butterfly in public, I tend to keep to myself and not associate with my neighbors. I like to keep it that way. Unfortunately, my father has been bugging every neighbor and every tenant in the Gilmore. The manager has told me several times that dad is driving the people insane and asked if I could control the situation. How do I do this? I've tried talking to him and he states that everyone is out to get him. Paranoia much? I didn't realize I was working in a mental institution.

But!! Things are looking up. My boyfriend and I have decided to live together. Dad finally decided that maybe it's time for him to leave since I'm moving in with my boyfriend. You think? Sad I had to do something like that for him to get the hint that he was overstaying his welcome.


  1. Natasha and I have a guy on CD that her cousin gaves us. It is great, talks a lot about the fact that there really is no stress. Stress is something that has been created in our world. Anyway, I'll get you a copy, it is great.

    I did want to say this. Sometimes we asked God (or whoever you talk too) for patience. Instead of giving us patience, he gives us the oppurtunity to be patiencent. Sometimes he sends us down the crazy father to take us to the limit. Yet, if we have not been to the limits of life, then where have we been?

  2. cool insight david! amanda, your blog is great! of course it would be - i have such creative children - and good writers too! so - have you moved in yet?? when is your dad leaving?
