Silent Pain

My parents separated about 4 months ago. My mom and I now live in an apartment while my older brother lives with my dad. I always knew it wasn't a good marriage and my mom would talk to me about it, but it still didn't prepare me for this life. There's always "Don't tell Mom" or "Don't tell Dad". It's really difficult with me trying to have a normal teenage life. I never cry in front of my mom so I can be strong for her but lately its been getting tougher and I have bad nightmares. I just wish somebody understood. And a hug :)
