Found out my dad calls me autistic behind my back - August 20th 2011, 06:27 AM

I was looking in his email for a the email of a counselor I used to see, came upon this email about my suspension and i haven't been suspended in years. I clicked it because my counselor's name was in it.
It read "...he has a difficulties with autism..." this was my dad saying it.
I'm not autistic. He has also called me a sociopath to my face and did this laugh he does which is clearly fake.
I don't talk to him for a stack of reasons such as he's addicted to weed, drinks every night, hates my mom, and on.
But this really hurts and I don't know what to feel or what to do. He clearly doesn't love me.
I really want to be out of the house :,(

I am the stone that the builder refused.

I understand that this hurts... by in the grand scheme of things, nothing has really changed. Your relationship with your father has been strained for quite some time, and this is just one more thing to add to the list of wrongdoings. I wouldn't waste another second thinking about the e-mail you read. Maybe your father said it in order to be malicious, maybe he suspected you had autism but didn't understand what it really meant... whatever the case may be, does it really matter now? Your father is still the same person today that he was yesterday. He still stoops to the same lows today as he did yesterday. I guess you can take comfort in knowing that 1) you are NOT your father, and 2) you will soon be old enough to move out of the house and create a life that doesn't have to include your father.
