I've lost my mum and I'm slowly loosing my dad
Posted by Chloe_324 on 12 February 2015.
When I was just 14 years old my mum passed away. It was a shock to us all and it upset me more because we never knew why she died... Her heart just stopped beating:( Life was tough for me after this. I went through a really tough time at school, I couldn't concentrate, work , listen everything was hard work for me. When my mum passed away me and my brother and sister had to move in with our dad. Well who I thought was my dad. Last year I was still just 16 I recieved a message of a random woman on facebook telling me she was my biological auntie as her brother was my dad? At this point I was really confused/scared/ mixed emotions! I didn't know what to do and I didn't want to tell my dad (the one I thought was my dad just incase it wasnt true. But after a few months he found out I knew and spoke to me and told me it was true! Now after 7 months have passed I've started finding things tough.. My biological dad does drugs? But I'm not sure if I want to see him.. After all he is my dad? He has three other children? And I want to see my half brother and sisters? I just don't know how to tell my family that I'm ready to see my biolgocial dad/family without upsetting them! I feel like I'm going to go mad.. I've got things flying round my head. I don't know what to do,say,think! I just can't cope with all of this!
