    Hello.
    I had written about a week ago, I had loneliness issues and I'm also severely bipolar. I'm still trying to cope up with all of that and now there's a bigger problem at home. I'll cut to the chase, I suspect that my mum is having an affair with one of her old college mates.
    My mum and dad have never had trust issues. They're the best couple I've ever seen. My dad is busy is busy with his job and he's out of town a lot these days. And now mum's got all weird. She texts that guy all day and goes to his house almost everyday on the pretext of meeting him because he is ill. I went to the movies with one of my friends last night and I was super shocked to see mum and that guy there. They seemed pretty normal but I didn't want to run into them at that point of time so I walked out.
    Whenever I try inquiring about that guy mum either gets very frustrated or she changes the topic. She left her phone on my study table the other day and I picked it up and was walking towards her room to return it while looking at the phone's wallpaper. My mum saw me peering into the phone, snatched it from my hand and slapped me because she assumed I was reading that guys messages. But I really wasn't. I don't know why this is happening, Dad is a really nice man and trusts mum so much. He will probably come down in some days and I don't know if I should tell him about mum or not.Mum has also started drinking and cursing a lot.
    I'm REALLY scared because I don't have siblings or friends to talk about this to.I'm alone at home when mum's not there. I just wait till 1am everyday for her to come back home, all worried , just to get cursed at. I just don't know what to do. I feel so lost at the moment. And not having people to talk to just ruins everything. Any advice will be of great help to me right now. Its getting out of hand.

    Your mother seems to be turning abusive to you - is it normal for her to treat you this way? Is there any way that you can move out of your parents house to get away from this situation? You don't deserve to have to take this burden on your shoulders, and getting away from it will help you think and decide what the best plan of action is.

    I'm only 16 so I can't really move out for atleast another year. So I'm stuck with mum and dad. I would love to get away from all of this.

      I felt that way too when I was 16, for similar reasons although in my case my parents were abusive to each other and/or my dad was very abusive to us. I used to grit my teeth and bear it--almost tried to move out when 17 then felt happier and freer when I was out on my own at 18 years and 9 months old. If you need to find a place sooner than 18 I hope you can find the courage to ask a friend's parent or a relative to live with. Otherwise, I hope and pray the best for you until you are the age where you can live on your own.

    I would most definitely talk to a school counselor about this. If you are not sure who that is, ask the office. Every school has one, and they will be able to help you out in this tough situation. You really should not be getting treated like this every day, and having to carry the stress of something that is not even your fault. Best of luck to you!
