My name is Nick. Mom died when I was a little kid and my brother was a baby. Since then, Mom has become a contraband at home: no talking about her, no pictures, no things. Dad buried himself at work and the house staff looked after me and my little bro--they still do. Dad's rarely home, I don't even know if he thinks of us anymore (other than physically providing needs). I don't know if I qualify for "lost both parents." I feel like an orphan, though. I'm the only one who's keeping Mom's memory alive. I tell my brother about her (in secret). Adults I talked to aren't helping ("Give your Dad space."). Wish I knew how to deal with all this stuff. It's confusing.
