A year ago I wrote Don’t forget me and it was very hard to write as it’s about my dear Dad who suffers from Vascular Dementia which is when its progressive and really takes a hold of the sufferer.
I now write about him again as in that time period I had only seen him once and it’s been heartbreaking.
Since my dad left my Mum 12 years ago he has been controlled by the person he went off with. Before he got ill in 2011 he would have to sneak behind her back to come see his 4 children.
We never get told if Dad is in hospital and she never answers the phone when we attempt to ring. I know he hasn’t forgot me because on Saturday I managed to find out from the hospital I was a patient in that dad was in there. So for about 15 mins I could have a loving Father and Daughter chinwag.
It may be the last time I see him because I went against his partner but she needs to remember he’s my Dad and was in my life before he was in hers.
I’ll never give up on him. He brought me into this world and I intend on not letting someone dictate to me when I can see my number one man.
Please fight for the people you love, they are worth fighting for.
