Heartbroken and tired

I am so tired of being stressed out about my father's mood swings. I am so tired of crying. I am so tired of being dismissed and emotionally abused. At least if he treated my mom good. That's what breaks my heart the most. I am 42 years old and as I write this tears are streaming down my face. He doesn't get it. He thinks money fixes everything. I am at a loss. I pray every night that my Dad will be in a good mood so that I don't have to worry about my mom.

If you got your mom some help, counselling, anything. As for your dad, the people that are the worst offenders are often the most blind about their behaviour. He needs help, too but prob won't want it. Your mom might have to put her foot down but needs support to do it. You're a good child/adult. Get some help for yourself, too. Lots of support info online. Make the call. No need to spend a lifetime suffering. Really, no need to suffer which is why you feel so helpless and sad about the situation. Good luck!

Actually what @anonymous wrote is pretty much spot on. She chose him. I know it sucks, but I have been trying to protect my mom from my dad's shitty attitude for her whole life. And she always picks him. I finally realized you can't change anyone. Sad for you, OP.
