So it seems like every holiday every year there's always some sort of drama now my kids are 4 and 19 months old I I am tired of being treated like I'm not a part of the family I was spending time on the 4th of July and I was called a bitch for no reason and when I went to talk to him i didnt acknowledge what he said I just asked him about the money he owed me and he said you're not getting s*** I did have a couple drinks in me so I responded and called him a b%$£×...well i was the immediate bad guy and all hell broke loose think god the kids were not in that side of the yard....well no blowes were thrown but i am tired of being treated like the black sheap....im a great dad and do everything in my power to take car of my kids so they domt have the child hood of sexuall and physical all of thee above abuse i had growing up by my brothers and other strangerz...yet my dad sais its my fault for the way i turned out before my kids were born and whent to prison....ibwas schizophrenic from 15 to 18 from 18 to 19 years old I was so high I didn't know what was up and down from 19 to 24 I was in prison so I'm 31 now and honestly I've finally been able to live my life normally as possible for the last 4 years yet I didn't get sober all the way until my first kid was born... I grew up around a lot of addicts I've managed to go the other direction at the age of 26 now I'm doing better than I ever have my mind is clear I am NOT mentally ill so now I take every precaution possible to keep my kids away from negativity and yet year after year since my kids were born there always negativity now this is a big decision because I'm going to isolate them from my whole family what should i do I am so depressed I am so stressed out Work hasn't been great lately and I'm very blessed to have my girlfriend but I need some professional help from somebody sorry for Renton but is it wrong for me to keep my kids away from those maniacs the maniacs that think that I was at fault I don't know please respond I'm using voice recognition to type on my phone please excuse me if things don't make sense I just worked 11 hours I'm tired

Hello. Wow that story does kind of relate to me. I have a huge family and my side of the family, well we are really loud and we like to have fun. For example, on 4th of July I had decided to bring my boyfriend and our daughter to my moms house which we started to do some fireworks. For some reason my boyfriend had felt uncomfortable because he's not used to being around a lot of people. So my mom tells me that he looked very bored and looks like he didn't want to be their.I got very tired of my mom telling me things about him, so we left outside with my family and we were ok their. I'm glad to hear that you overcame your challenges about your life, I bet it was hard to talk about it on this website. But if you are depressed try to go get some help and the stress from work, well we all get that. I also work and I come home so stressed out too but i do whatever I can to get that away from me because I know when I come out of work I come home to my baby girl. Also don't listen to the negativity that others say. They do it out of spite. If you know that you are doing the right thing then continue on that path and you will see the light at the end of the dark tunnel. Hope this helps you out a little bit. Thank you and god bless
