Just found out I am a product of rape

I'm 55 years old and my 91-year-old mother lives with us, for whatever reason she felt it was time that she told me that she was raped and I was conceived. This all happened while she was married to the man I thought was my father. She never told him. She also has three other children older than me who I thought were my full brothers and sisters. I'm kind of freaking out not knowing what to do or how to feel. I've ordered two DNA kits for my sister and I to take, just to make sure that her memory is correct. She said she was drunk and this man took advantage of her, she doesn't even know his name. My aunt was there, so I am going to ask her if she knows anything. Does anyone have any suggestions, recommendations? I'm truly at a loss.

Thank you. I know that it doesn't change anything but I just feel so empty inside. Like I've been punched in the gut. I guess it just takes some time My siblings and my husband and children are very supportive and basically said the same thing that you did. Thanks again

At this point I would be inclined to feel that it really doesn't matter. I don't mean to brush off the situation or your feelings on it, but while it may be interesting to know the truth... it doesn't change anything on the life you've led for 55 years. It doesn't change who you are and it doesn't change who your family is either.
