well, i'm new here and just getting used to the idea that i'm a lesbian.
i had this whole journal thing written out before but i hit a button and
it all disapeared, so let's try this again. i haven't come out to anyone,
even though i know several people who would be totally cool without, who
are gay themselves, and would probably help me out... but still, i just
don't feel quite ready to share yet. not to mention i'm at a conservative
catholic school... they're not the most opened minded bunch around here.
besides, i've been so busy with work and school that i haven't even really
had time to think about it, let alone planning what and how to tell people
maybe after midterms... maybe. i definately can't tell my parents just
yet, i don't think they'd be okay with it, especially my dad.
so i'll be waiting till they support me through paying for college, maybe
then i'll tell them, because i feel bad not doing so at all. and yet,
i'd like to finish school first. well, that's all for now.

welcome back... it sucks that

welcome back... it sucks that your mom doesn't believe you... i sometimes wonder about my mom's reaction because she's always talking about how awesome her gay guy friends were when she was in school but i don't think she'd consider a gay daughter awesome...

you're her daughter. if and when you do come out to her, i'm pretty sure she'll still love you. it might make her a bit uncomfy at first, but in the end she'll prolly be fine.

mom's gonna be one of the last people i come out to. good for you ;-). why doesn't she believe you? why would anyone lie about being attracted to the same sex??? silly parents. perhaps she just doesn't want to believe it.
