well tomorrow marks the 1 year anniversary of my near death accident that took out both my forearms and a peice of my jaw (along with teeth) .

i finally am on my feet , new apartment , new job (temporary untill i fully recover my strength to go back to marine mechanics) , and it seems like he's coming down on me tougher than ever.

im a f*** up i'll be the first to admit it, but man i love him and my mom and sister more than anything in this world, and he swears i dont love him, its hard to deal with something like this. any advice?

obviously the only thing i can do is do this for a few months then get back out the boats and cruis ships i was working on.

any advice is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Dads do that, mine did, he was right when he said it, I have changed well I think I have I really can't ask him. he died 20 years ago. But he was right when he said it and I disserved it.

if he is right he is right, if he is wrong tell him so and prove him wrong.

My Dad did not know how to express himself so, envy you just a little. Can you get a why out of him as to why he thinks you do not love him?
My loving act for my son is to delay my next motorcycle until he is grown up. If he made me worry about him getting hurt, that would be unloving.

As a 58 year old father of three and grandfather of two I'll make it easy on ya. STOP BEING A F*** UP!

Are you an asset or liability to your family / father?

There are a few young guys on this forum that have grown up and you can tell by their posts that they have.

Although I think you are older, based on your posts here I'm thinking 16 years old. It might be the way you come across to your old man.

Dan has ten years on your guess of his age, I think. But I am also a father grandfather like you, well a year older. But I have had to read my oldest daughter the riot act myself a couple of years ago when she and her Boyfriend and my 2 grandsons came to live with us because they couldn't pay their own bills because they had to have their dope first then maybe pay for food, then if they had any money left pay their rent.

I have read Dan's posts about his accident that put him in his currant state of disrepair and don't think he has the same problems my oldest daughter had with drugs. Just from falling threw a roof or something like that, my short term memory is shot but I can remember things from months and years ago quite well, sometimes anyway.

As fathers we try to keep our kids from making the same mistakes we did or others, as a grandfather I try to be easier on those boys but they seem to be following in their mother and grandmother, my first wife's foot steps.

Steve

thanks everyone, no im not an liability to anyone . I guess he's giving me a tough time because he's trying to rush me back to my career (marine mechanics) but i physically cant work that yet so I got a temporary job to pay my bills and just stay above water. Yeah I clown around on here alot but its just to lighten the mood. Im not a **** up anymore just was wild when i was younger . Oh well just gotta keep going at my own pace man and in the end hopefully he'll be happy

Dads have high standards-it comes with the territory. To have anything less is to allow the target to be lowered. My dad was a "dad of convenience." At least it sounds like yours has helped you out in the last year.
