He's apparently losing it - yet at the same time, not really. The lines are very blurred between his deception and his true disorientation. Dad says he will act all strange and creepy with one person at a certain moment - then turn around to another person and say that he was "just pretending" the next and explain in extreme clarity what he was saying or trying to achieve. He is consistently talking about acquisition of property, bizarre incidents of contact with various people, and mentioning the harming or destruction of animals and dogs at least twice according to my dad. I've carried on with life pretty...erm...well. It's hard not to still feel hurt by what he did in the past/memories - meetings with him have completely come to a halt since my previous thread. I'm happy I don't have to contend with seeing or fighting with him - it's a great weight off my chest. Whatever is going on in his head and his situation I wish him only the best and alot of peace for however much longer he may be around.
