New to this site so please bare with me.
Her father (who was very abusive mentally and physically) and I divorced in 2000. He was involved with her for a while then just kind of disappeared for a few years. He showed back up for about a year and took off again for 10 years. Shortly after her 18th birthday he got back in touch with her. That is just a run down on the past 18 years.
Well, her and I were best friends up until high school. She has become a rude, self centered, "it's all about me" kind of kid. I gave her everything and then some trying to compensate for her dad not being around. I remarried in 2005 to a guy who was "dad" to her. She treats him like a king and me like someone who is nothing more than a nuisance. She talks to me when it is convenient to her and/or when she wants something. Basically doing what her dad did. I've done everything the complete opposite of what my parents did (which was everything wrong). Good grief....I just don't know what to do!!! I don't want to go home, when I do I go to my room and shut the door.
