I'm happy to hear that! I never would've guessed asking a question in an online forum would turn up info and advice leading to so many positive life changes, but no complaints here!

Smile Thanks for the update - -

Thank you for sharing all the painful stuff and we all learn everyday. No one is perfect but you have made giant strides and I can't imagine what you went through.

Thank God you met your husband and he sounds like he is a true gift, a partner for life. You have done the right thing.

As one myself who always wanted family close, your scenario was well written and in your case, you sought out the right path.

I wish all good things for you and as for your siblings, 20 years from now, you may have that relationship.

Your father sounds as if he has Narcissist Personality Disorder or BPD (borderline personality disorder). Since you are the "hero" of your family, you will need to seek counseling BEFORE you get married and start a family. I have a BPD mother, and she does the exact same thing your father does; tries to sabotage relationships, brag and boast about me, have to call her 2-3 times a day, etc. Start setting some boundaries with your father ASAP! Let him know that he will need to obey your boundaries, or else risk the elimination of the relationship. He will grunt and moan at first, but once you let him know you mean business, he will shape up. I had to set boundaries with my father recently because I know Christmas is coming up, and dysfunctional people love to act a fool around Christmas. lol
