Standing Up for the Little Man
Not less than 24 hours after the repeal of D.O.M.A. I received a threatening phone call from my "father" (the one who supplied genetic material to make me, that is ALL).
He has bullied me all his life, I don't here from him for (basically) 30 years and then this. Screw IT, I'm standing up for the little child in me, so bring it on, you have no idea what you are doing, you shameful man.
I have had learning and developmental problems all my life, only had ACC diagnosed 5 years ago, and am in the process of being reevaluated for being on the Spectrum (ASD.) What is shameful is that they cannot for the life of themselves, admit this, and would rather shame me for not being there "Stepford Son."
I'll not mention his name, but my 21 year old nephew, who I last saw (and held as newborn) 21 years ago, we got in touch last year. Our relationship is cordial, I love him, I always will, and made it clear in no uncertain terms I would never get between him and his family. So I'll basically "hang out" until such time as he may wish to reconnect, because all hell is breaking loose, I'm sure.
My "father" accuses me of "fucking with his grandson" and that "he doesn't want to talk to you and you are bothering him, I'm calling the local police" (and telling them what? for crying out loud LOL.) The young man in question is a perfectly self sufficient 21 year old man, and I love him, will support whatever he wants, but hatred, and wild eyed alcoholic threats mean nothing to me anymore.
I'm blessed with a medical/psychiatric/legal/moral support team, and went directly to them when this occured and we filed a police report, if there are any more threats, there will be a restraining order put against him.
I am Joseph Scott Galbraith
Born of Judy and Dick Galbraith
I was born with the congenital birth defect ACC as well as being on the Spectrum. All "medically verified" and even documented in studies of my brain.
I will not allow my inner child to be bullied by this man (or any one else) ever again. He makes outrageous accusations, which most people just laugh at. I am a spiritual being. Like one of my icons, Swami Ramakrishna, I dove deeply into all religions, looking for the Golden Thread, and have taken hold of it. In most of the world, spiritual changes comes with names, and I have been given names by my Gurus throughout my life. My name is also "Anandagurudasa Singh" (or Gurudasa) as well, and for a time took my grandfathers name in honour of him (his name was "Joseph" like my middle name, so I changed it at 19 to honor him.) All legal, all PUBLIC, all without fraud.
<VENTING>This hate mongering man tells people I'm a "psychopath and a liar", "evil", "a criminal" saying "anyone who changes there name is a criminal.'' Well pardon me, but SCREW YOU, you haven't cared to know my life, and now YOU have thrown your chance away, so sorry for you. </VENTING>
I have no anger, nor hatred, only forgiveness, but now I must put you back on the shelf, and I must forget..
It is so hard for me not to have my typical ACC / ASD meltdown, but I am SO proud of myself today. The child within, he KNOWS, he will no longer be bullied, but that his "dad" (me) will stand STRONG for him.
I was able to contact my Case Worker, who contacted the police, to whom we played the venomous voicemail he left me, and filed a report against him....
I want to take this time and thank the many many people (at least 8) who have called me in the past couple of hours, to see if there was anything they could do to help, or just to lend moral support, as well as my team at Kaiser Permanente, I quite literally could not have gotten through this without you.
And my Chosen Family, as well as my blood family who are still very much part of my life, thank you so very much...
Hell hath no fury, like that of a man for his inner child, I will love and protect him at all costs.
