O's father called her tonight. He hasn't called her in over a month but now he wants to see her this weekend. She didn't want to talk to him and when she said she had to go, he got angry with her. "Oh, you don't want to talk to me now?" She doesn't want to go there this weekend, either. I don't think she has any desire to see him at all any more.
She started crying when she hung up the phone. She said he was going to call back tonight to talk to her and she's freaking out a bit over it. I told her that she at least has to tell him that she doesn't want to come over this weekend but that she'd write him a letter to tell him why. Hopefully that will be easier for her. She can't say it over the phone for some reason. I think she's afraid he'll start yelling at her.
I don't really know what to do. I'm not going to make her go if she doesn't want to, but I'm also going to have her tell him that she doesn't want to go and why. I think she should.
I just wish the fucker would stay gone instead of pulling this re-appearing act every now and again. It drives me crazy, but it really sends O into an emotional spiral. It sucks and I can't make it better for her. I hate that.
