I\'ve been out for 10 yrs now, I was 24 at the time and had been dating a man for 3 yrs. I consider myself very lucky. I thought coming out would be the end of it all. My boyfriend at the time is still my best friend as well as his wife and kids. My mothers response was \"well I kind of figured\" To have a happy life honesty is about the best way to go about it. Trying to live a lie just about killed me. I got tired of putting on a face for everyone elses benefit. If you lose people because of it then they don\'t truly love you. This is how you find out who your real friends are. Like I said I was lucky I lost noone. I know how hard it can be to put it out there and If I can be of any help to anyone I am here. Out and proud. Be yourself or happiness will not come.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
