So, I never really knew my dad. He left me when I was only 6-months-old after he pretty much destroyed my family's apartment. It wasn't until I was twelve years old when he decided he wanted to get in touch with me via Facebook. And I was okay with that (and obviously my mother wasn't). It wasn't until several years later until I saw the true side of him. My mother and I have been fighting for child support off of him since I was…twelve. And each time, he made excuses and dodged court. When I was stuck in a hospital in Denver all he did was send me care packages. When I needed him the most he would make excuses not to help me and was really only there for moral support I didn't need. He literally cannot spare a single dime to help me out, and the most fucked up part about is that he wrote a book that actually got published. He's making money off of this book and he apparently can't send me a small bit to help me the fuck out. Then around my 19th birthday when my mom and I got an email from the child services in Kentucky where we learned that because my father dodged court so many times they were dropping my case. And of course we're furious. I managed to get in contact with him today and I told him about what happened with child services. Instead of hearing me out, he shifts the blame on my mother who has done more for me than he ever will. I told him that I have an internet bill that I cannot pay by myself, and I can't ask my older brother to pay it for me. My mom can't help me because she can barely find a job after what happened with her ex-boyfriend (long story short: his drug addiction almost cost my mom her nursing license). I have no work experience so not a lot of people are gonna come to me with job offers. I also told him how I have a cat who needs to be neutered and that I'm gonna be starting college here soon but according to him those are all my mom's issues. He lied to me about going to court, he only went once and that was because if he didn't go he was going to have a warrant. If he just went consistently he would only have to pay until I was 21 (and I'm almost 20).
