Should I go visit my estranged father ? related questions

  • 1Should I go visit my estranged father ?

    Since I could remember my mother and father are madly in love with each other. They were upset that only a couple complement each other all the time and they were all lovey dovey. Things changed when I was abou 9 or 10. One night, I locked myself in my room because my mom and dad were in this great debate, there were shouts and screams. I was scared because it never happened. The next morning, I awoke to find that my father was gone ... Forever. I've never seen since. When my mother was 16 and my brother 14 years old, had an accident and went. It was terrible. I expected my father showed up to his funeral, but he did not. So I lived with my godparents who happen to be the best friends of my parents and my in-laws now. Now I'm happily married with a beautiful daughter 34 and a son on the way, but about two days, I received a call from my mother and she said she talked to my dad and found out where he is. Apperently lived in a nursing home in Florida, and my mother happens to have a friend there who introduced him to it. He is not doing well and apparently finished putting their children in the nursing home's mother died and took thier money (I'm talking about his wife, who was also unmarried with children who married after leaving us). I feel very bad, which is odd because I do not, after all that we just left. Part of me wants to see him, because he was a wonderful father to me and was a great father figure for my husband when we were kids, and I just want to know what happened. The other part of me just wants him to go to hell, and I can not help thinking that if he was still around my brother and mother would. Should I go visit him or not? Please do not

  • 2Driving a friends car while on a visit to the USA?

    Soon going to visit friends in the U.S. and we have some pretty long road trips planned. I wondered if I would be able to do anything from driving, or if I have to pass a test / alternative licensing beforehand? Currently I have a full drivers license in the UK and I have 22 years old , if that makes a difference .

  • 3What to expect from a home visit?

    We are beginning the process of international adoption . Part of this is a home visit with a social worker . I wonder what I can expect this. Do something casual where you check out our house to make sure it is clean and safe and is more in depth . Is there to do some projects home improvement (ie , painting the room , clean the landscape,. ) If we're going to help all the children of God . Any information would be helpful to the process .

  • 4Please help me. The hospital put me thousands in debt over an ER visit?

    I honestly feel like crying right now. And for a grown man, that's saying alot. Here's the story... On august 1st (just a month ago) i had the worst stomach pains i've ever had in my life. I was hyperventilating, sweating, and just all around freaking out. I've had really bad pains in my stomach before, but i didn't go to the hospital because i don't have insurance. So i held out and dealt with the pain. but on this day, it was so bad i was about to pass out and it was scaring the people around me. So, my girlfriend rushes me to the hospital and they give me a morphine drip for my pain and order a couple scans. A CT scan and an ultrasound of my stomach. Also a urine sample. I waited and waited. I first got there at 1pm and didn't get any real results until about 5:30pm. The doctor came in and told me i had gall stones and that the only treatment really is to either go on a bland diet or have surgery at a later time to get my gall bladder removed. So, he prescribed me some vicodin/ib profen and i was out of there by 6:30pm with a generic pain reliever prescription and a print out from google of what a bland diet is. I've gone on the bland diet and the pain has come back anyway, so they didn't really help other than to diagnose my issue. But that's beside the point. My real issue is this. I assumed since i was only there for a few hours and i didn't even have surgery or anything that my bill wouldn't be so bad. Maybe $2,000-3,000. And even then, that would be alot for me. A week later i receive the bill in the mail and mine and my girlfriend's jaws drop. I got 2 separate bills: 1 for the scan that was $500. Okay, not too bad. The other from the hospital itself for $12,000! I'm...simply dumbfounded. And the breakdown on the sheet of all the costs just made my stomach/emotions sink so low $3,000 for the use of the little room i was in for only a few hours $6,000 for the other scan $300 for the lube they put on my stomach for the scan And alot of other little overpriced things that added up And just today i got another bill for the doctors/nurses totaling $700. I'm so...sad right now. I'm in my mid 20's working part time as a janitor because it's the only work i could find. I only make $800 a month and i co-support my 6 year old daughter. How am i supposed to pay for this? These bills shot down any hope i had of moving up in the world. I was going to get a better job, save up for a better car. All that. And now from only one visit i'm thousands in debt. What can i do? I feel so ripped off. This has affected me to the point where from now on if anything is wrong with me, even if it's serious, i won't go to the hospital. With my mentality now, i'd rather die than go. What are my options? How will medical debt follow me? The more i google the more freaked out i get about all this. Can they take away my car and garnish my checks if i can't pay? I'm just...in shock. I'm hoping someone on here can help me out to calm me and my family down a little. Info about me: I make $800 a month i rent I don't have any assets other than my car and even then, my bill is worth 5 times more than my car I live in washington state I don't have insurance and social services actually said i make too much. Too much? Ha! I'm poor Any help, any links to any programs or phone numbers or anything would mean the world to me

  • 9What do you do? I need some serious advice for my father?

    I asked this yeaterday but did not get many answers . must not have been many here . $ 4,000 was taken from my house yesterday morning parents . I had it in a safe that Walmart bought under his bed. He said he kept the keys on the key ring that stays with him at all times . He has been having a lot of trouble with my sister who is 16 . She has stolen his car , hanging out with the wrong people ( addicts ) and smoking marijuana itself. The last time he stole the car , she was caught with a 20 year old guy in the car with her and she had been drinking . You can not call the police because bankruptcy is doing and if he had reported the money , could return to its bankruptcy . The house was open and no force entry into the safe. I told him there is not much the police could do anyway since the house was locked and no entry into force of the safe and they do not want to put my sister through it . He says he has no idea how anybody could have done it . I said I had to start saving your money in the bank and have to start closing the house , but other than that , he just got out of that money and have to go through it , since your bankruptcy , not can call the police because they have to report that he had that amount of money saved . What do you think ? I do not know whatelse to say. Could you provide some tips to help .
