It wasn't, but it took many years to come to an understanding that it wasn't normal to be forced to make life altering decisions at age 10. I had to make a choice between 2 bad things. It wasn't this, but it was like this: You're in a car accident, the car is on fire, and you only have time to save one parent. Who do you pick?
Sorry you had to make such a difficult choice that young in your life.
Thank you. Future-me won't have any trouble coming up with the right answer.
