Unhappy Sorry to vent but.. - January 9th 2011, 02:57 PM

I don't really know where to put this but I figured that it would be mostly family. I know it's gonna be really long so I'll apologize in advance.
Well my parents have been fighting for a year now, they never do it in front of the kids but it's so obvious that their unhappy all the time. Then my mom cheated on my dad with a friend she's known since she was like five.
My dad found an incriminating e-mail and confronted my mom with it, that was months ago at this point, and told her he didn't want her seeing him again.
She didn't, for a little while. Then all of the sudden she tells me that she saw him on her birthday. The thing is, I have no idea the extent of the cheating and I think it's really wrong that she's still seeing him, both because he's a married man and she keeps telling me that she wants to work out the relationship with my dad then she goes off with this guy.
My dad has all these messed up emotional problems from when his parents got divorced and it's just way messed up. I don't understand why he still lets my mom see this guy.
And another thing is my mom told me that she and this guy made out when I found out she cheated and now she's trying to say that she kissed him on the cheek. Which she knows is bull crap. And honestly, I don't care how their twisted relationship affects me but I have a 12 year old sister and an almost 10 year old brother. I feel like I'm keeping them from being corrupted by my parents messed up relationship. My mom has brought up divorce numerous times and my dad doesn't want to hear of it.
I don't know what I want anyone to say..I just needed to get it out there.
Their fighting has also started bringing up my self harm issues and anxiety issues again.
Thanks if you read it all.

I'm sorry you are in the middle of this whole mess. I think is unfair that your mom is telling you that she went to make out this her friend putting you in a hard situation because you obviously love your dad and by her telling you that it hurts you too. Anyways I would suggest you not to get involve in your parents problems if you have someone you can talk to that would be good. It’s good to let out how you feel about this situation to other people. Maybe even try talking to your parents and tell them how this whole mess is affecting not only you but your brothers too, sometimes parents can get too caught up in their problems they often forget about their kids. If you bring that to their attention maybe they will understand the effect this is having on you and your brothers.
Good Luck.

Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.
