My father and I have always been either good friends, but mostly on he edge of a cold war situation. Right now we haven't talked since june last year. It's eating me up. Before I always used to be the first to give in, but now that I'm independent I dont have to do that anymore. Should I? Still, every time I think of him I have nothing but bad memories that make my eyes burn. I think I might be kind of traumatized.
