    Last night I came home from work at 5:30 and went upstairs and nearly fell asleep just hanging out watching YouTube and then my dad came and asked me to take him to KFC (he's an alcoholic). I couldn't be bothered because I'd been at work so I said "no I'm too tired". So for the rest of last night he was angry at me for being selfish. saying I never put myself out for anyone. he later told me that if he gave me an interview for uni he would tell me to "**** off" "you're useless" "and a lazy *******"

    I'm wondering if this is normal parenting behaviour? am I wrong to be upset?

    It's not normal and you're perfectly entitled to be upset.

    Will you be staying at home when you go to uni? If you're going to uni in the same town/city as where you live, Imo it'd be best to live away from home if you can (if it's financially possible). It doesn't sound like a good environment.

    I can't afford to live away from home. I'll be a mature student which is worse and why I feel like I shouldn't be upset.
    I'm 20 but feel 12 when things like this happen

    Emotions for me are a inner child, our vulnerable, truthful sides and family is really personal, we want good relationships with family and when it is not that way it hurts, more if you see someone hurting themselves, the world, their loved one and so hurt inside and aggressive side just trying to cover the grief and fear they hold inside and do not accept showing.

    or this is what happens when addiction controls your family life and makes you feel like those who should love you would be better off when you are dead.
