My father was very successful starting two companies that were very successful and he made a lot of money, more money that anyone, including me, could dream of. He was in the right place at the right time.
But despite his huge wealth, he still envies me. Yes, I am good at maths and always have been and yes, I am very logical in my problem solving.
After my retirement, I used to work with him. He did not grow up in a computer world and neither did I, but I taught myself how to use computers, whereas he did not; it is not really his fault, he was just from a different generation.
But, when I prepared accounts for him or wrote any other documents on a computer, I was always changing his grammar, despite him going to a grammar school, due to his high intellect. Private schools for him were not an option as his father was a boiler maker at Southampton; education did not come into life in those days; no one’s fault, that was just the way it was.
As he has got older, he has taken exception to this and started off with the sexual abuse when I was 12 or 13 and then moved on, once my mum had died and I was “unprotected” to complete hammer me, anyway that he could.
His first son has been a complete disappointment to him and has bailed him out countless times but he has never improved. It took him 5 goes to get his Maths O level, with the last one taken at university, as a condition to get his degree.
So, with all of this in mind, I have had to fight against him and it certainly has not helped with him being a mason, having all of his contacts in the police; he has really tried absolutely everything. It is taken a massive toll on my physical and mental health, to the extent that I have wanted to kill myself so many times.
I keep on fighting back, as I just cannot take injustice and unfairness; it is just not in my DNA.
Now, the tables are turning and I have proved, without a shadow of a doubt, that the trust officers have really tried to shaft me, with multiple amounts paid to my brother, loan write offs and interest free loans, although I have been charged extortionate amounts of interest, more than a mortgage company would have charged, even though my brother was not charged a single bean.
