I know what youre going through dude. I dont know your full situation and I understand it's tough and it hurts. This may sound brutal but you have to stop caring. You have to, you cant let it consume you. Dont play glue either, it will just suck you in and make it more painful. You have to not care about it and focus on yourself. I kind of sort of read you're in a small town? That makes it tough but you got to find something. Whether be a job, gym, or something. You need to find something that will benefit you and distract you. Maybe take a risk and find a way out of the small town? Spend some times with your friends, get in some trouble or something XD.

That's the only advice I can give. Just dont care about it, care about you. Their back and forth will not benefit you.
It's for the best, and will save a bit of your sanity.

I am getting out of town in the next few weeks to hang out with some older friends of mine who are in college and will be staying with them a bit so hopefully it will be a good break from my parents.

Well I am probably going to be going to live with a friend for my last year of high school. My dad will be moving out of area and my mom will be living here still, but I don't want to be around her when all she does is drink and take pain meds every day after work. So I will be moving in with a friend at the end of August.....hope this space makes things easier. I am trying to stay out of it, but it still just really hurts. I do want to say again thank you all for your support I haven't cut this entire time and I want to thank every single one of you.

It seems like your mother is blackmailing your father. I do not know the full situation though but that's how it sounds like. I would just try to stay out of trouble and complete your studies if I were you and care only about yourself for the time being.

I wish I could give you some sage advice, as a divorced parent. I can't. There's nothing I can do to make this easier, other than to offer my own opinion. Sometimes people just don't get along. They did at one time, now they don't. People like to hurt each other. It's sad, but true. The one thing you need to know is it's not your fault. The dice were in play for a long time; this is how they fell out. I don't hate my ex, honestly. But this happens. I know you'll make it through, but if you need anything - let me know. I'll do what I can for you.

I just don't like being in the middle even though I am trying not to. I know it isn't my fault, but I just wish either they could fix it or end it....it sucks that every summer this has happened.....hopefully living with my friend will make it a bit easier though.

Find a way to escape from it. If you can get to a park, or go somewhere or go with someone else, like e.g. stay at one of your friends' houses, or go out to the park for a while? Getting away helped me not go crazy when my parents were divorcing. I was twelve. The only thing that kept me clinging to sanity was the fact that I had a place that NONE of my family members could ruin. or barge in on me in.
