He is 47 and dating someone new, it is so weird to me to not see him with my mother. They got a divorce 2 years ago and he moved out on Christmas day - my mom did not know because she was too busy leaving my dad at home to go out of town. Mean while my mom just sits at her house and I think she is lonely and struggling with money now. Both of my parents are so messed up at times I am not sure how to feel about either of their situations. If only my mother had not been so mean, cold, selfish and popped pills my dad never would have left her. And if only my dad did not get an addiction to porn, drugs and alcohol would my mom would have let him sleep in her room and maybe cared more. It is hard to say who is more fucked, my mom got ovarian cancer when she was younger than me and had a complete hysterectomy and never really took her hormone pills. Then she got a thyroid problem and never wanted to do anything about that, so she gained a lot of weight. My dad lost his hair, gained a beer belly and the drugs made him lose teeth. I mean just train wrecks of people who needed to self improve, makes me wonder how messed up I truly am. :/ Now my dad is dating someone new and my mother is miserable. I don't want to meet this new woman honestly but my dad seems so happy for the first time in ten years. How do people handle this?
