Divorce led to cutting

by Julia

It all started when my parents got divorced. I was 10 and the first thing I remember was my mom telling me, "Look at your father. He's so disgusting." I looked at her as if I had never known her. I'm 14 now, and I still feel like I don't know her. And I started cutting last year after I felt that I was tired of this. Tired of going back and forth, making both my parents happy, and looking after my schoolwork and brother while doing everything else. After my parents got divorced, my mom moved out and now my brother and I have to go from house to house. We live mostly at our mom's house and our mom treats us like babies and acts so fake and talks crap about my dad. My dad on the other hand, I've come to hate. His house is just disgusting and messy. And he doesn't really even care. And when we stay there, he doesn't even talk to us. He just makes dinner, calls us down to eat, lectures us on stupid things, and drives us to school, or mom's house. And let me just say, I'm too tired of this crap. At school, I have a big circle of friends, but I always act like nothing is wrong at school because I don't want them to worry about me. Also, my brother and I will keep having to go back and forth from house to house until we're 18.

I'm sorry. I shouldn't be talking like this since I know many of you have it harder..

I hope all of your problems get better. (':
