I'm mentally scarred from something that happened when I was 15. Watch

    Basically my mum cheated on my dad, my dad came home and smashed up some of the house. They told me they were going to break up, I cried my eyes out, then after a week of feeling like a ghost they decided to stay together. I can't get this out of my head ever since. It changed who I am, and the weirdest thing is that when my parents have talked to me about it they say "it's probably better" that this happened, as if I needed to know the truth. My dad also told me during the incident that my mum was raped before they met, like I was interested in knowing that?? It's like he thinks that excuses it, that she was traumatised and now she's trying to relive it or something. It was in the newspaper what happened to her, she was abducted and beaten to near death, the guy tied her up, beat her, raped her then for some reason let her go. I really didn't want to know that about my mum.

    So basically I am completely mentally ****ed up from all of this! Any advice? I don't think it will ever go away. It turned me from a confident, funny and smart person to a psychotic wreck.

    I'm really sorry to hear that. Knowing something like that about your mum can be really difficult. It's just as difficult for you as it is for her.

    Do you think some counselling or therapy would help?
