Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who gave me support last night.
I should clear a few things up though.
Technically they're not both my parents. My mum is, but she remarried a few years ago, so her husband is my stepdad.
I have been the parent for many years. Mum got diagnosed with bipolar disorder after a long time of depression and self harm. I have been looking after her ever since Dad left when I was 11, I'm now 20.
Her current husband is a great guy, just not supportive when it comes to her condition. He also suspects she is making arrangements to leave him for another guy, one of my many "random add" friends on facebook who "randomly added" her a few months back and who she constantly texts.
Oh and her hubby read her diary and apparently she was contemplating going off with some guy in Texas who she also met on Facebook.
Gee my life is exciting! Oh and my Dad disowned me a week ago. We won't go in to the details on that one, not now anyway!
Again thank you and sorry for that vent! To anyone who read it, poor you but thanks!

What I am doing at 3 a.m. is hoping when I go to bed in a few minutes, I will be able to get to sleep. I am on my crazy hours routine again. Up for most of the night, go to sleep somewhere around 3-4 a.m. and get up in the middle of the afternoon. I feel like I am missing my whole life when I do this.Of course I could do some housework until I get really tired. I was watching a John Wayne movie earlier hoping that would work. Movie was too good. So that didn't work.

Good morning everyone. I had planned on going out on my scooter. Forget that. It is 7F. with a wind chill of -10F. We are still having wind gusts. And that is what is keeping our temps so low. Boston is ecstatic. They won last night. And it was COLD at that stadium. I am ready to go back to bed. I have only had three hours sleep.
