Every couple of weeks my dad just starts really shouting at me and I don’t know what I do wrong, he says he wants to leave and it’s my fault if he leaves because I’ll be responsible for him and my mum breaking up. And when I try to talk he just keeps shouting. The last time we argued he raised his fist and looked like he wanted to hit me.
He has started saying things like I’m mentally sick and I don’t act like a normal person, mainly because I’m always cleaning and tidying and I get annoyed if he messes my room up, although I never moan at him because he shouts off the top of his head when he is angry.
I always end up crying and saying sorry because I just don’t want the atmosphere but I’m starting to feel all my life is just this horrible sad feeling and it’s getting to the point where I don’t remember what it’s like to be happy anymore.
Today was my first day at a new job and I was excited to tell my parents how well it went but as I say he completely ruined it. And when he is like this the whole house is silent for a couple of days until he is ready to talk again.
What should I do, I’m a 23 yr old male, I can’t afford to leave home but I’m tired of him
