HELLO THIS IS MY FIRST TIME. I HAVE A BABY ON THE WAY AND IT LOOKS LIKE MY JOB SITUATION AFTER TWO YEARS STRAIGHT WORKING IS STRESSING ME OUT HARD. MY FIANCE DOESN'T KNOW THAT I'M ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAK DOWN. OUR TWO SON'S IS MY ALL AS WELL AS
 THE ONE ON THE WAY!  NOW I'M TRYING TO DO THE RIGHT THINGS IN LIFE. MY RELATIONSHIP WITH MY DAD,AND STEP BROTHER IS A JOKE. IT BOTHERS ME THAT AFTER 33yrs. MY FATHER LIVES 15minutes FROM ME AND DON'T COME TO VISIT ME BECAUSE OF MY STEP MOM. MY BROTHER LIVES IN HARRISONBURG AND HE GOES THERE ALOT,I
  MEAN ALOT! I'VE TRIED TO TELL MYSELF THAT I HAVE MY OWN FAMILY NOW. SO I PUT MY DAD,STEP BRO. OUT OF MY HEART,MIND. I MEAN NO LOVE. KIND OF LIKE A HATRED. EVEN TOWARDS MY DAD MORE SO BECAUSE HE HAS REAL GRAND KIDS and DON'T ACKNOWLEDGE THEM LIKE HE DOES
 FOR MY STEP SISTERS KIDS AND SO FORTH.
TRYING TO STRIVE TO BE A BETTER PERSON IS HARD MOST OF THE TIME.
 IT'S LIKE A TEST TO SEE IF YOU REALLY WANT CHANGE. I WANT TO STOP SMOKING CIGS. BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW. IT HURTS SO BAD INSIDE BECAUSE I NEED TO BE AROUND TO SEE MY GRAND CHILDREN WE THEY DO COME. SEE MY SON'S GRADUATE AND BE MORE THAN WHAT I'D EVER BEEN. LET MY SON'S SEE ME GET MY (GED)WITH A SMILE OF ACCOMPLISHMANT. PLEASE SOME ONE GIVE ME SOME ADVICE. THANKS FOR LISTENING.
I have had to edit a couple of pasrts of your post due to healing well rules:
 
Rule 1 states :

1. No discussion of any illegal activity or threats of violence. (ie. illicit drug use, including medical marijuana use, threats of suicide or self-injury, or threatened or intended physical harm). Discussions of suicide or self-harm that are deemed negative and therefore potentially injurious to others are also not permitted.

Please read the forum rules before you post, thankyou

Lamoreon,
Here's the deal. People get so caught up in their own worlds they forget about the ones that need them.
It sucks...but
I came from a family that only saw each other on Holidays and that was when we were lucky. So, I got fed up,and started calling them. At first just to say hi,how are you ect ect.
Then I started inviting them over for dinner...maybe once a month.
You do have your "own" family now,but you also need your old family. That is very important.
I know that family members can be stubborn,but sometimes it takes the heart of a woman to lead then in the right direction.....

Good Luck

Well stated Shy
Very good indeed ...........
Obviously I am in total agreement with you on this

**My family did the same only because it was Mom that always initiated it or me
Now that she is gone I feel I have lost all family with her
Nothing is the same
I do reach out though and try the least I can do I feel
I look after my dad who has alzheimers and they rarely are there either just occasionally
and I know he forgets alot but I also know this hurts him too
My Cait goes down and listens to him for hours about the "OLD Days" n Antiques ..he looks forward to it and she does too
I take him to Wednesday market or shopping all the time 'I will not let other things come between us I want the good memeories before he is gone ya know
I wish you all the best
