Hello everyone I hope you are all doing well.
I got a new job (start next week) and am happy. I am starting a job as a CNA (certified nurse assistant) at a nursing home. I thought my family would be happy too. Just about everyone is except one of the people that it would mean the most to me if he were. Instead of my father being happy for me, he gets mad. My own cousins and brother in law is happier for me than my father is. I get a lecture of how I dont trust him (my dad) because I went and got a checking account(job only does direct deposit) and how he doesnt need me or the money, plus more. I EVEN asked him if I could apply for the job before I did it. Shows that he didnt think I was going to get the job. He makes fun and calls me a butt wiper, it hasnt bother me too much before (when he would do it when I was in clinicals),but I cant take it anymore, I am feedup with it. I would think I would be us to his actions by now, 20 years of living with it, but it is really just getting to me. I got steriods injections in my neck yesterday, they must be messing with my emotions. I just need help understanding, and support from people who I know care.
