uuurgghh stepfather issues... - July 25th 2010, 02:50 AM

So today my family and I got home from this road trip thingymabob that was really only one night where we stayed in the mountains and then went to a festival type thing and then went home. Everything was going really good until my stepdad and stepbrother kept randomly leaving us in the heat to do something. They had all our cash and my mom and I were starving. I'm also sick with like the stomach flu or something. Oh, and my mom is also sick with like multiple things, and is pregnant. So when he came back and was all like, "K, I'm going over here now.." my mom started yelling at him and it just got really awkward after that... He decided to drive us home, and for the entire four hour drive, no one spoke at all. My stepfather was just pretending that my mom and I don't exist. When my mom confronted him about that, they got into a verbal fight, and it ended up with my stepfather saying my mom and I can't go up to Minnesota on the super duper long road trip that we've been planning for months now. "Because we're too much to handle." Yeah, because we don't enjoy standing out in the sun for hours and hours while we're sick and hungry. I didn't think I would feel this sad about not being able to go to Minnesota with my family. I think it's because this is the first time I've ever been in a full on normal family, without any drugs or violence involved. And driving to Minnesota would have been a family thing, even if my stepbrother and stepfather are annoying as hell. So I guess I'm just feeling left out and alone again. Should I maybe talk to my stepfather? I don't even know...

I would talk to your mom about how your feeling & maybe your stepdad. I'm not sure if it will aclompish anything or not though. But it was irrespoable of him to do that.

I'm confused on this. If they were with you then left, couldn't you try to go with them or ask for some of the money back so you two could feel more comfortable? Your mother would know how you're feeling, she may feel worse actually but it could be useful to talk to her since you're both on the same page. If your stepbrother and stepfather were doing this, to me it shows they don't want you there and don't like you because even if neither of you were sick or pregnant, giving some resources to you so you can feel comfortable is very reasonable.

Do you know where they were going? Depending on where they were going and what they were doing, not taking you would be considerate.

I'd suppose they are used to the temperatures and such so they wouldn't have been in as much discomfort as you were, which may be why they didn't give much money as they felt it wasn't necessary. However, giving absolutely no money or other resources for at least your mother is quite inconsiderate. The only other reasons I can think of is they may have sexist beliefs or just don't like either of you being around.

You can talk to your stepfather if you want although I don't see much success coming out of that from their behaviours and from them saying they don't want you two around.
