You find out the dad you never knew died.
That's what just happened for me. I've never known my dad, except a year when I was 15 and a rebellion (aka stoner/skater) and my mom sent me to him for a year. That is the only year I can remember with my dad, and it sucked.
I reached out to him about 4 months ago randomly, and ended up in contact with his neighbor, who told me I needed to come see him asap, which of course I shrugged off. Why would I put priority into seeing someone I hadn't seen in over 20 years? I attempted a phone call, no answer. Later that day while away from my phone he had called me back, but I missed it. He didn't leave a voicemail so I instantly thought FU dad, after 20 years you cant leave a voicemail? So I didn't pursue further contact.
Today I googled his name and found an obituary, dated 3 weeks after my attempt to contact him.
I don't know why, but my eyes keep leaking liquid, and some things just suck right now. Thanks for listening.
