I have always known inside that I was a lesbian. But because of the way I was raised and the way society is I felt it was wrong. The first time I can remember an attraction to another girl was when I was 8 yrs. old. I grew up and I never dated till I was 19 yrs old. and it was boys I started dating. I married at 20 got divorced around 26/27. Dated men after divorce. But it never felt great. It was always like something was missing. Then when I was 30 my best friend helped me to realize that I needed to accept myself for who I was no matter what. And I started the coming out process. I am now 36 and I am out for the most part and pretty comfortable with who I am. But I have learned that it is and will be an on going process, maybe for life. I know some ppl do not understand why it is a big deal, coming out, why do you have to tell ppl. Well for me it is because I want to be comfortable and be me. I do not want to have to worry that I will say or do something to "give" myself away. I could not tell my mother face to face so I told her in a letter. But she already knew. I was living with her at the time. And she told me she did not want the "lifestyle" I was "choosing" in her home. So I left. And I have not spoken to my mother in over a year now. Why can't ppl realize it is not a choice and it is not a lifestyle. A lifestyle is a particular way you choose to live. We do not chose this. I have a little thing on my myspace that say "If God had wanted me different he would have created me different." Any how enough for now.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
