    Lois - Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Yes you are ok, and life does continue, but take any time you need to cry, laugh, be sad, reflect and you will get past the hard things.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    Lois Lane I am so sorry for all you've been going through. You always have a comforting word for others who are hurting on this board and I wish you didn't need those words yourself right now. I hope your holidays are warm and full of love. Don't give up on your dreams.
    One of these days I'll stop being sensitive. Until then, I'll continue to be devastated on a daily basis. Life breaks my heart.

    Tell him you want no gifts and he should pay his bills.
    Well, I have asked helped on my boyfriend's side with his dad,step-mom,and step-sis and they all believe that this is unreal and that he really isn't needing the money for what he says he is. Alot of people that I have talked to believe that it is something to do with a gambling problem. He wrote me another note and said something along the lines of "me and my boyfriend need to find our own place by January, and he will find a smaller place like jail...thanks" what parent does that to their child?

    Lois,

    I am so sorry and I just have no words that can convey what I want to say., I wish I could give you a hug. I'm sending one. Know that there are many people that care about you. My heart breaks for what you've been through.

    Well again from personal experience - that is nothing but manipulation. You and the BF should probably start looking in earnest for a place of your own and let the chips fall where they may. Do not give in, because every time you do it is harder & harder to get out of the situation.

    I agree with Gabriel. My brother has been doing the same stuff to his daughter for years and its just a big story to cover his drug debts.

    No parent EVER should do that to a child. I'm sorry you have to go through this, but the best thing is to tell him, you will go to the IRS offices with him and help him work it out, but that you can't give him money. And I wouldn't ask him for ANYTHING, even a Christmas present.

    I wish you the best of luck. I know it has to be hard to have a parent treat you like this. But for your own sake and sanity, you need to be firm and not let him guilt or manipulate you and don't ask him for anything either.

    If he has debts and he is facing jail, its his own problem, not yours.
