I know, it sounds like something out of one of those really bad netflix movies but it’s unfortunately for me true.
I was over at a friend’s house for most of the day yesterday, and I wasn’t supposed to be coming home until later in the evening.
Mid afternoon, we decided to go and just drive around, then wanted to go to shopping. I didn’t bring my money with me (I keep my savings in cash in this little jar so I don’t spend it so impulsively). We decided to go by my house to grab some cash on the way to the mall. When we got there, my friend waited in the car because I was only going to be a couple of minutes.
When I walked into my house though, my parents were on the couch. I don’t want to be too overly graphic about what was going on, but my mom was on my dad’s lap teasing him, and it was very clear that they were about to have intercourse.
They both froze when they saw me, totally expected because they didn’t plan on being interrupted at all. I was frozen too, then after a couple of seconds I realized my mom was literally wearing one of MY FAVOURITE DRESSES. Like I wear it all the time. Not even like it’s really revealing or anything, just a normal dress. We were all looking at each other in shock for a few seconds before my Mom just said “I’m so sorry”
I ran back out of the house, and was crying by the time I made it to my friend’s car. I started explaining to her what I had just seen and she was calming me down but then my mother came out of the house after me literally still wearing my dress. I told my friend to drive away before she got to the car and we went back to her house.
We didn’t give her parents any details about what happened, just that I had some family drama. I’ve been friends with her since way back, so they told me I can sleep at their house for a couple of days until I figure things out.
I barely slept last night at all, every time I close my eyes it’s like I see it in my head. My Mom’s called me a bunch of times, but I only texted her back to let her know where I am, and told her I need time before I’m ready to talk to them. She replied again apologizing, and wants me to come home today to talk to them. I don’t think I can do that yet, even typing this out I’ve started shaking with nerves about it.
What do I do now? I’ve never felt unsafe in my house before at all, but I also don’t know if I’m comfortable being around my parents now that I know that they’re literally pretending she’s me. I’m so grossed out, and I think I want to burn every piece of clothing I’ve ever owned.
