What do you do with family that treats you as an outcast?
My dad has lung, liver and colon cancer. However, my dad's side of the family prevents me from seeing him. I have to find my own way to see him both before he was told he had lung and colon cancer. I wanted to visit him everyday, but I couldn't so I called and checked up on him every week and daily. No one seems to think that I'm not hurting. I wanted my dad to live a healthy life and not die due to the drinking and smoking he did before this. I'm all alone when it comes to his side of the family. I just wanted my siblings to get along and I end up getting yelled at again. Somehow my dad's sister involved my mother in this (who she really doesn't know) and my youngest brother insists I'm after my dad's estate/money. I'm in no way like this and my mom's family and my friends know me better then they do. Its just sad, I struggle with depression and sometimes feel it was better that I be in my dad's spot. I can tell that my brothers wouldn't be visiting me. They claim I want people to feel sorry for me, yet they won't talk issues out with me. I know they are taking care of him, but that doesn't mean to make his only daughter in the state an outcast. I'm looking for help because this is a serious issue, I'm pretty sure we won't be on speaking terms when he does leave us. I try to live day to day the best I can. Any advice would help me, I don't want them to prevent me from seeing him in his final days. I'm sure i'll have to find my own ride when his funeral comes too.
