    My parents told me (and my siblings) in February that they were getting divorced. I was obviously shocked (especially since I hadn't heard them quarrel a single time) but coped with it. Until last week, it seemed pretty far off. We still have supper together as a family and everything is pretty much the same apart from the fact that we're moving next week.

    The thing is, on the surface everything is fine. I love my parents and my siblings all the same, I've got the perfect summer job, amazing plans for next year (my gap year) but something just doesn't feel right. My best friend lives in the UK (I live in Sweden) at the moment + she's got a new boyfriend so she really didn't notice anything when I saw her last week and I don't really want to talk about it over the phone. My other five really close friends are also living abroad at the moment. So there's no one I can really talk to about it. I feel as though I'm not allowed to complain about my life, yet I don't feel well.

    I am, and have been, feeling really low the past couple of weeks and would just really like some advice from someone who's been through the same thing.



    My apologies if I've posted this in the wrong forum.

    My parents are divorced, mostly helped along by my Father being dragged away by the police after destroying the front door with his fists after practising on my siblings.

    But, hey, I'm not really *that* affected.

    My mum is soon to marry hubby number 3 so yes :shifty:

    It sounds a cliche but with time it'll get easier and in a way it#s good that you are at an age where you can understand and being able to make your own decisions instead of being a young child. I just found I had to be careful particularly with my mum and dad's divorce that I didn't make me take sides. Things will get easier though (:

    Yep. Child of trauma, right here

    Seriously though, feel free to pm me at any time if you need a chat. Name a side effect of divorce and I pretty much guarantee I've experienced it.
