Yeah, my mom and dad (still) fight all the time, thank god my brothers didn't get to watch what I did when I was little, all of those horrendous breakdowns my mom had because my dad was an immature person doing all kind of shady stuff. I remember feeling like scared and like ****, and my mom was very over-protective and strict at the same time.
Nowadays they just stop talking for days, but they're more relaxed overall and have raised my brothers in a totaly different way...
Sucks to be the firstborn and be the "experiment" of how to raise your children . Nonetheless, I'm far superior to them
On the surface, my family is pretty normal. Actually, it seems like the perfect family. Mother, father, four daughters, always sticking together. However there are some strange things about my family. For example my mother always complains to me or my sisters about my dad and how she wants a divorce because she feels like he doesn't provide enough for the family and everything is her responsibility. Most of the time it seems like she only tolerates him for the sake of the family, especially my 13 year old sister. My parents do not communicate well either, every time there is a discussion it always ends in yelling etc. I also feel like I can't tell my parents anything personal because they are staunch Catholics and will judge me, even if it's not that serious. Once my mother caught my older sister smoking a blunt and she rushed her to hospital because she wanted the doctors to "fix her" and afterwards she made my sister get counselling because she thought she was depressed .
I suppose what has happened within my family would qualify as dysfunctional. I don't talk to my Dad. I love my Mom but sometimes wonder why I still live in the same state as her. I don't any of my "brothers and sisters" because Pappa was a rolling stone. I suppose the only one I don't have any real problems with is my oldet sister but she'll be 20 this year and leaving me to be her own. *sigh*
