Original Thread: Sorrelhorse may or may not be leaving.
So, up until this point I have been pretending to be okay. I rant online and look straight faced or smiling in person. Well today, I put an end to that.
I'm at a final straw. I'm in emotional turmoil. Two of my cats who I loved so much are gone without a trace, my old dog I grew up with is going to have to be put down soon, we are struggling to keep our horses afloat, let alone get groceries for ourselves. I am so thankful my mom's new boyfriend is helping us out until things get better, otherwise we would not have any way to survive.
Well anyway. My dad agreed to $800 a month for us originally. After two months he said he couldn't do that. My Mom tried to work it out and say we could live off $500 a month. Not forever, just until we got stable. I feel that is fair, considering he basically abandoned us after putting us through a year of total hell. (And honestly, a lot of hell before that, but that's another story)
Yeah well, come the first of the month for the past three months it's been awful. He agreed to give us the money at the first. Yet, very first he says he doesn't have it. He makes four times as much as my Mom and I combined every month. He doesn't pay rent on his house, no tv, just electricity/water/food/internet. His gas is paid for by his work, as is his insurance. He has no animals or dependents. It's all for him. When he left, I asked him to keep paying the small internet fee up here for me (Which shuts off in two days btw...) but he is refusing. I offered to pay the small fee if he kept the internet in his name, since we can't get it in our name due to lack of income. He refused. Meanwhile, he now has a new ATV and high speed internet (For twice the speed of what we had here) at his house.
Every time this time of month rolls around he screams at my mom on the phone until she breaks down in tears. She hangs up on him, but he calls back constantly until she answers again. She went to his work to pick up a check from him after he finally agreed, and he blocked her car in with his truck until he was done yelling at her. Then he texts me and victimizes himself, saying Mom is demanding more and that it's not his fault and he's just too broke.
Yeah. As you can see, I'm done with this.
I told him today if he wasn't going to play nice I wasn't going to see him again. If he couldn't commit and try to make up for his mistakes, then he needed to get out of our lives. We are currently texting/arguing and I am in tears typing this. I just couldn't sit by anymore. I have enough emotional issues and enough to deal with without his help. He's an unpleasant jerk to be around on the best of days....Let alone when he's like this...
