Ok, to start things off I need to say that I get a little heated VERY easily. My dad just got his life together a few years ago from heavy drinking and drug use and has fully severed all associates and paths to lead him down that with path with certain people again. My mom divorced him from drinking actions and now, out the mercy of my mom, I get picked up Friday-Sunday to spend time with him. My dad is always consoling when i have a problem, for a short while. If i talk about a problem he goes off getting pissed, raising his voice and almost like he's gonna smack me, which he never did, ever. If I do something bad like coming home late on Halloween because of safeguarding, defending, and fighting for these small kids in my neighborhood he brings out the worst in me by bringing up old situations only in front of people or in the car when we have long drives home. He picks on everything about me, my faults, my temper, my getting a B in science and even what time I wake up on a rest day. If I try to talk to him a out it he shuts me up and gets more angry. He's like "I don't have to listen to you because I'm the father so you sit and listen kid.'' Today he's coming over to yell at me because I fell asleep at 12 'o clock last night. I can't release my anger, not in this house, the garage, or anyplace in this neighborhood. I get so worked up i can't even take off my shorts without thinking about how stupid I am for getting into those conversations. My fists are more than ready to go with whoever ticks me off just a little and I don't want to be like that. Again, he only angers me in the car alone or in front of people like relatives or visitors and it gets awkward. What should I do so I don't break something or smash someone. I just want to rip this laptop in half so badly right now.
