Today, I finally worked up the courage to tell my dad about my worries for my mental health. He then told me about the tracking device the aliens had implanted in his hand when they abducted him. There's nothing like family. FML

flibbertigibbet tells us more.

OP here. Just to clarify a few things, my dad started telling me about the aliens BEFORE I could even start telling him my own concerns, so the coincidence was quite funny, if sad. I decided that perhaps it wasn't actually the best time to bring up mental health. And for those who are worried, I am already getting professional help and on medication. It simply doesn't magically fix everything the way I wish it would!

On a somber note, mental health issues often have a hereditary element. If you're worried, have a chat with your doctor and maybe encourage your dad to try the same. Good luck, OP

Good luck in your journey op. Recovering from mental illness (or at least keeping it at bay) can be one of the hardest things you do in life. Hopefully you and your dad get the help you need to get back to 'normal'.

But What If He Was Abducted By Aliens?

He might be the dad from "Independence Day"

When people capitalize every word in a sentence it immediately becomes a Fallout Boy song to me. This one would be pretty awesome to be honest.

That's what happens when you go to Scientology School. He's really advanced, for someone who's not yet OT3!

The absurdity of this situation is out of this world...

I love the floor once again proves that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Or your fathers just trying to be supportive and share with you that he will be there for you. This is a win-win

how does the floor prove this exactly?

By catching the apple, perhaps?

Typo Should have said fact Using voice activated dictation and didn't proof read

Well at least now you know where any problems came from if they do crop up! Sorry OP... family can be difficult sometimes

sounds to me that the dad didn't know how to handle the situation, and used a defense mechanism

If you truly feel that way don't give up on seeking help, you deserve to tell good about who you are, stay strong.

That is way out of this world!

I hope you mean EX boyfriend OP

noo i think she ment couch...

nonsensical 26

she totally meant EX father* like for sure

So when you do get help you can say that it runs in your family, alot of mental diseases do. At least you know there is a problem and you can address it. Good luck OP.

Sorry OP, I work at a psychiatric hospital and I know it's no joke but on the bright side most mental illnesses are treatable if not curable so keep your head up even when the voices tell you to keep it down :)
