I hope your mom eventually comes round and can learn from and support you, but I'm so sorry you didn't get an understanding reaction to begin with. :-(

We love you, OK? Just post if you need us. <3

Just try and relax and not

Just try and relax and not let your mind run. Pat yourself on the back for being so brave. If she does make (or force) you go to a therapist, try and do some research so you can find someone you might like who is LGBTQ friendly. Hopefully you can turn it around and s/he can work with you and your mom so she can understand things better. Just remember there is nothing wrong with you and you don't need to change.

*Hug* from me, too! My friend just came out to his parents a few weeks ago, too.. his mom is making him go to therapy...
It'll be okay. I hope she goes to counseling with you. Maybe your counselor will be able to put things into perspective for her.

Good luck, sweetie!

*hugs* We still love you and

*hugs* We still love you and I know your mom does too. It's sometimes difficult for parents to shed that idea of their child (the one that they dream up when they think of having kids one day, that one.) and being gay doesn't always come into their minds. Hopefully with time she'll figure out that you're just you. <3 <3 <3

oh ferrets

Oh ferrets, I'm so sorry. I can't imagine how you must be feeling. I know you're scared, but things will get better. I also agree with lacking_direction, you should think about researching LGBT friendly therapists, that could help your mom understand if a 'professional' explained things to her. I hope it goes well, good luck. Oasis is always here.

Be careful, though. She may

Be careful, though. She may not trust a counselor who she thinks may be "converting" people, or she may not trust a gay counselor at all. I suppose if you could find a straight counselor that is accepting of gays and NOT a part of P-FOX or Exodus Intl. You don't want to get mixed up with that, kiddo.

Feel free to email me at any time. You've got my email, and if all else fails you can always PM me.

If all else fails, you can call me and I'll talk some sense into her. :P

Congradulations on your bravery ferrets! I do think that the counciler will help her. A psycologist helped my parents. Im not sure that they needed it, but they did say that he explained to them that it was natural.
