He emailed me saying he wanted to see me, I told him no, I’m not feeling well, I been coughing, I asked him can him understand. He ignored me & came anyway, I should’ve known he wouldn’t listen. The man is soooo incredibly stubborn, my sister takes after him, he wants to get his way, I told him alot of times, I dont like taking on the phone, he keeps ignoring that. One BIG reason that I hate talking to him on the phone cuz he doesn’t listen to me, I tell him something, if he doesn’t understand, he will say something else thinking I said it. He can give me anxiety too on the phone & get me upset, it can be so bad that I can cry. Anyway I got upset when I heard his voice, I had so much anxiety, he was bringing me Persian food & a plant, he bought quarters too for my laundry, he dropped them off, he said he wasn’t going stay, he should have told me in an email. He left, I was trying to get my cat in my bedroom, I had to chase her, I was still having anxiety & breathing too hard, my cat finally went into my bedroom, so I could open the door, it took me around a hour to calm down, i kept doing my breathing exercises. I ate dinner then I was having a coughing attack, I threw up in my mouth then I threw up again.

a pity that your dad seems "tone deaf" to your needs.

I have had similar problems with my mum. I deal with it better now that I can see she is autistic just like me. She doesn't know it yet.

That's awful that your father doesn't listen to you, my mom and other people like that in my life can be like that a lot. I know how terrible that feels when your suggestions seem to be purposely unheard/ignored. Has he always been like that with you? and does he act that way with other people or does it just seem to be with you?
