“My daughter received an antisocial personality disorder diagnosis at 18… but she has no plans to tell her boyfriend.”
A concerned dad has posted to Reddit with what users are calling one of the most difficult predicaments the community has ever seen.

For a lot of us, our dads have been known to help us out of many a sticky situation. They’re usually the ones we go to when we need a little life coaching.

Posting to Reddit’s “Am I the a**hole” page, the man explained that his daughter is harbouring a “dark secret” from her boyfriend, and plans to keep it that way despite his advice.
