  • I know that there are secrets in my family...on both sides...but I have no clue what they are because no one will tell me. I'm disconnected from my family, my mom died when I was a child, my step-father and bio-father were abusive, and my foster family didn't give 2 craps about me. Being divided from my brothers after our mom died, we don't know each other, and everyone else in the family never bothered with any of us, either.
    I started digging up info about my mom so I could get a sense of who she was as a person (from an adult perspective) and other than some of her old school mates saying "she was a really nice person" no one will say anything! Even her own sister and twin brother won't share anything about her....not childhood stories or anything.
    I feel like a leaf in autumn that has broken off from the tree and is being carried every which way by the wind.

  • Well my brother killed him self. It is not really a secret. My husbands sister is full of problems. She lost her job, drinks too much, is going to loose her house all because of years of over spending and never being held accountable. I guess she is a lot like the rest of our population.
    Ok, ok one more I went camping with my two sisters and they are both crazy. One is a nutso drunk and gets so mean. The other one is just mean. I think I am the only normal one in the bunch. Ok, ok I am probably not normal either. lol

  • Well, my father has been screwing a manipulative married woman since 1979. When my mother was dying of cancer, he was with her. We used to think they were just friends, but over time they are more open. Except they act like we do not know about it.

  • My dad married his brother's ex wife which makes my stepbrother and stepsister my cousins as well. Oh..and we found out that another "stepbrother" who I also though was a cousin as well is actually my 1/2 brother because my father and my step mom/former aunt had an affair while she was still married to my dad's brother. EEK! But we look so normal and like typical snobby New Englander's ... LOL!
