How do you deal with finding out new information about your family? Things that you never could have imagined yet are shocked you didn't know? As I become closer to my mom, she is opening up more to me. Last night she told me things about her childhood and my childhood that I just don't even know what to think about them. I kind of want to forget about them but I know if I do that it will come back to haunt me later on in life. She also wants me to start working with a therapist at the tribal center (we are Native). It would be free and I guess they are pretty well known in our area. I don't know if I'm ready for that though. So I guess what I'm asking is how do you deal with things like this?
