This time last year I discovered something that changed my life forever. I saw text messages between my father and his TWO mistresses on the Ipad. (when you connect your phone to the Ipad, txts show up.. the Ipad literally acts as a big Iphone for those who don't know) My Parents were married for 27 years - 25 very happy years (the last 3 years..not so happy!) I was the only one home. My parents both at work, and my brother visiting his girlfriend at school.
I saw my father messaging these strange women expressing his love to them, begging them to send pictures of their boobs, making arrangements for when and where they would next meet, reminicing on past experiences they shared together.
My body was shaking from head to toe - a feeling I will never forget. I froze as I stared at the Ipad watching messages appear right in front of my eyes.
I called the mistresses - of course they didn't answer, I wrote them threatening text messages - of course they were too big of cowards to reply. I phoned my dad - called him every name under the sun. He rushed home from work & DENIED EVERYTHING. He told me "anyone could have sent those messages" "this Ipad is referbished... It must be messages from the previous owners phone!" I sobbed like a baby thinking how the hell could he do this to us. Anyways, after speaking it out with my dad for a few days, he showed me messages he sent to his mistresses assuring me he had ended it with them. He never actually admitted to having an affair but told me "it was over" lol wtf right?!?
I believed him like a stupid weak little girl. I was in such denial thinking my once trophy dad couldn't be capable of ruining what use to be our picture perfect family. For months I kept this secret to myself. It made me sick. How do you tell your mom her husband of 27 years is cheating on her?! I couldn't tell my brother because I was scared of his temper and feared what he might do.
Things got better for a little while until I saw my dad was back to his old habits, taking his phone into the bathroom, shower, excusing himself from the dinner table, texting under the table etc...signs that were so clear something was going on but signs we all wanted to ignore I guess....
I continued to fight with my dad telling him he needs to tell my mom because I can't bare to break this news to her.. he of course still denied having an affiar. We got into a huge fight over it - I have never yelled like that in my whole life and next thing he got SO mad he went into cardiac arrest right infront of my eyes - after cussing him off and telling him I want nothing to do with him... I almost watched him die!!!!! (I know.. sounds like the biggest load of sh!t but trust me.. it happened lol) My mom saved his life. I thought after his heart attack he was aware he was "given a second chance" and going to turn his life around but I was soo wrong..... I woke up one saturday morning at 7am from a text message to my phone. The txt message was from one of his mistresses... This was 3 months after I had messaged her and called her after seeing those txts on the Ipad. well.. thats a conversation for another day....
Not sure if anyone has taken the time to read this but if you have please leave a comment! Let me know if something similar has happened to you or someone else you know. Even though this happened almost a year ago, the story goes on and gets that much more dramatic, intense and shocking...
Thanks for listening and reading.
