    This has been playing on my mind for a while, it makes me feel disgusted, so I want to know if I’m overreacting and if I’m not what should I do about it.

    I’ve always been raised by my single mother, and when I was around 11/12 she was casual dating someone (I found out by hearing a phone call.) I slept down my grandparents house when she went on a night out, when I came home I found an empty condom wrapper in our living room, and strange white stains on my bedding. I got really upset about the condom wrapper, thinking of a random man being in the house. She lied and told me it was a sweet wrapper. I don’t know why but this made me very paranoid and judgmental of my mother for about a year, whenever she went on nights out, which was rare, I’d feel like she would be having sex.

    When I was about 13/14 and learned what the white stains could’ve been, I confronted her, but she kept saying it wasn’t what I thought it was. Maybe she was embarrassed to admit it, but it’s disrespectful isn’t it to slept with someone in your daughter’s bed? This is the bed I have to sleep in, where I’m supposed to be comfortable, why on earth would she have sex with someone in here???
