    I lost myself doing stupid things, angry and sad and depressed at everything. I ended up failing my classes, not caring about school, and getting into fights.  more...

    I stuck my head round the door in the room mum was in, and she looked really ill. I couldn't understand what was happening - one minute my mum was fine and the next she was ill.  more...

    Something I wish is I could just have one more day with my dad! - to tell him how much I love him and how sorry I am for all the bad things I have said and done to him!  more...

My dad has prostate cancer and I always feel awkward around him now now like I have to look after him.

Also I feel like I can’t talk to him my parents are split up so it’s extra hard and I feel so upset. I sometimes feel like it’s my fault and I know that’s stupid but I always feel like that. And I wonder would it be better if I had cancer but it wouldn’t.I came to rip rap to talk to people who understand me more then my friends.

Its normal to feel that way. Maybe you could talk to him about how it makes to feel awkward, to sort our tension.
