    Life

    0
    For as long as I can remember, my parents have never loved each other. We were fine though, and my family managed to get by from year to year. Until the summer before 8th grade, when my grandpa had a stroke, and my great aunt who was living with him came to live with us. My dad insisted that she live with us, despite having several mental disorders including demensia and schizophrenia, and being...

    So Many Emotions

    0
    I am a fifteen year old and I'm struggling a little bit. Very recently I found out that my parents were getting a divorce. I never saw it coming but then it got much worse when I found out that my parents were getting a divorce because my dad had been having an affair with a woman who he worked with. I don't blame my mom in any way as she tried to hold the marriage together for four years for the...

I want her to be here with us however if she is unhappy and miserable I dont want her to be here. Her upsets disrupts everyone. Not sure what...
  • I have been married for 13 years and honestly don't want to be married to my husband anymore. The truth is the only thing that has prevented me from divorcing him already is the financial aspect and the fact we have a 19mo old daughter. He is a great father and has been a great provider but I am completely miserable in our marriage. We are basically roommates who share parental responsibilities....

    Fear

    1
    I am afraid of opening up to people. I don't have a lot of friends, because I am afraid of rejection. My parents have been divorced for over 15 years. I don't really have a relationship with my dad. He has not been there for me and my sister for quite sometime. I don't know if that is part of that reason why I have difficulties opening up or what.
  • Hi everyone, this is my first time in a support group, but I'm just looking for some advice or people to talk to who know what I'm going through. About a month ago, I got a call from my mom, which was a total shock, and she told me that my dad doesn't live at home anymore and that they were filing for divorce. I learned that my dad had an affair with a much younger woman, and ever since, my world...
  • Hi everyone, I am Charlene. I just joined and I hope that someone can understand my situatation and help me as I really need help. My mother has hurt my 8 year old sister and me until we had to go to the hospital for 2 weeks!!! The court has forced me to have Skype calls twice a week with her. During the calls, she completely ignores me. An example is when I asked her for her email during 3...
  • Hi All,I am a 27 years old and I received a phone call from my mom last night saying my dad hasn't been living at home for months and they are getting divorce. It shocked me to my core. My mom cried on the phone with me and she isn't a cryer. It hurt me a lot and made me livid at my dad as it sounds like it's all his decision. My mom struggles with depression and I'm really worried about her....
  • Hi Im Hannah, and I really dont know how this goes because I have never been in a support group. But my therapist says this might be good for me until I see her on the 9th. Two days ago my mother (whom I have a strained relationship with) let my brother (31) and I know she was leaving my father. She used to throw huge fits when I was a child, giving me "the talk" about divorcing him man times...
  • My parents split up about 2 years ago and I feel like it's just gotten worse. I feel like my parents just continue to become different people everyday and it gets worse. As soon as they split the just became different people. People that I just didn't really know. I used to be best friends with my mom. Absolute best friends. After they split, I can't spend a day with her without a big fight...

    Relationships

    1
    I have trouble with intimate relationships. Everything that I've read about children of divorce (at least in my generation) says how we will put in so much effort to make relationships thrive. However, I constantly find myself in situations where my partner thinks that I'm too independent. I don't know how to lean on people and I'm not used to asking for help. I see healthy relationships on TV...
  • I'm 22 years old and still depend on my parents to help with college. (PS sorry this is super long) However they since they started getting their divorce last year, things in my family have gone south very fast. My father is a controlling man who saw my mom, brother and I as things that held him back from success and decided to cheat on my mom and then to date another women that we know, she...

    Recently my Mum and Dad are playing around each other more than when they did when they were married. I just don't get it. And what is more, they are doing this with Pop in the mix and it's like an episode from Will & Grace.My Mum is not a Fag Hag?I'm glad that they are happy. I'm overwhelmed that they are getting along. But now I have 3 parents who are questioning my every move.

    Stuck in the Middle

    2
    My parents divorced 7 years ago when I was 16. I am now 23 and my parents are still putting me in the middle of things. I am the one my parents go to when they are mad about something the other has done. For example, my mom decided to take my dad back to court for money she feels she is (right before Christmas, nice right?). My dad then texted me how mad he was and how unbelievable the whole...
  • I am a sixteen year old girl and right now my parents are divorced. I already struggle with anxiety and depression but since my dad has moved out of the house it has gotten worse. The truth is that it would be better for my mental health to be living with my dad. How should I go about telling my mom this? I love her so much and I don't want to hurt her or think it is her fault but I can't...
