Recently I found out that my whole life was a lie. My dad has been been cheating on my mom since before I was born. This was all kept secret to "protect me". Now it is all out in the open, and everything has blown up. I am 25 years old, having to hear about all these things that my dad did, and honestly its messing with my mind more than I thought it could. To make matters worse, I am the only line of communication between my parents. I am the one having to tell my dad to stay away from the house and other things I can't really say on here. I know that I don't want to be in the middle of this, and I told both of them this, yet it still continues. How do I ease the drama? I have enough stress with my 2 kids!!Answer Question
My friend went through something similar. Do you have a friend that you could take to? I would also get with your parents, one at a time, and let them know that you love them but you don't want to get in the middle of this. Let them know that you are there for them but set boundaries. Good Luck!

Next question overall
Do you ever get to the point where you want to just throw it all away?
