Warning: there's nothing violent in this but it may be sensitive for some ppl? idk it's just my dad getting angry
Hey guys I could really use some words of comfort or something
My dad got pretty upset at me tonight and said some mean things. He does this sometimes and it makes me feel very nervous.
So basically my kitten has to wear this cone around his neck bc he just got neutered. It keeps him from messing with the surgery. He has to wear it for a week. That's what the vet said, anyways. But tonight, when my dad was here, my kitty got his bottom jaw stuck under the cone. It was pretty sad and scary because my kitty was scared and stuff, but we were able to get his mouth out from under the cone.
Then my dad got irritated because of what had happened, and he was like "his cone needs to come off, bla bla bla." Then I said "I think it should stay on because the vet said it should be on for a week." He only had two more days left to wear the cone.
My dad said "no. It's coming off."
I persisted that it should probably stay on, and that we could just keep an eye on him to make sure it didn't happen again. I wasn't trying to be disrespectful, I just was wanting to do what the vet said. Anyways my dad completely EXPLODED in my face and started shouting and throwing stuff, saying that he had "apparently had no experience with animals whatsoever." Then he pointed his finger at me and said "I HOPE HIS MOUTH GETS STUCK UNDER THAT CONE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, AND YOU FEEL TERRIBLE ABOUT IT."
I ended up locking myself in my room in tears. My dad apologized later but he's still kind of angry at me I think. He's a good dad, really he is. It's just sometimes he loses his cool, and tonight was the worst night for it to happen.
I've been struggling with school and having panic attacks over my homework and now this happens. :(
I'm just really depressed and now I'm having bad thoughts about myself. idk what to do.
