I'm a 14 yr old girl. My mum and dad have recently had a divorce which really made me depressed for months.
My mum and i have never really got on that well. Firstly, she is skinny but not anorexic... all she eats is fruit which really p***** me off. Secondly, she had an affair which she finds funny and now she has a boyfriend in Africa.
It really upsets me when she talks about him to me. All she says is that she can't wait to get away from my father and then she always laughs. I find all this so upsetting. I used to self-harm but i don't anymore because i eventually thought what's the point, it is not exactly doing anything.
My mum told me that she didn't want children when i was born and she never realised how much that really hurt me. My dad on the other hand is so caring and loving but there is one huge problem that really upsets me: the age difference between my parents. My mum is 43 and my dad is 74!! I keep thinking to myself am i the only one? All my friends' parents are reasonably aged but not mine :'(
My mum is leaving in a couple of weeks for 3 months to go to Africa. THREE MONTHS! I have started just taking a few paracetamol now when i start to get upset. I don't have anyone to turn to because i don't trust anyone.
