My mother came up to me a little bit ago and told me that as soon as i get into college shes leaving my dad. She says that she doesnt think he really loves her anymore and that they dont even kiss or make love since they adopted me. She always comes to me crying about these things and its tearing me to pieces inside. Not long after that I find out my little brother(half brother) only 15 turrning 16 might be going to jail because he broke probation. When i talked to my brother he told me what really happened and i know hes a good kid but hes giving up his life for his fathers well being. I want to help my mother and stop her tears but i also want to protect my brother from jail. Even tho i force a smile onto my face and hide my tears it has ended up taking a major toll on my mental and phyiscal health which i have started taking meds for and getting couciling. Its still going on even now and i am still involved but they try to keep me less involved.
