And now I get to create my own!!
I came out to my Mum yesterday, on Australia Day
I sat her down and did the usual build up, trying to make it SLIGHTLY less of a shock, but because I've been seeing doctor after doctor for the last few months, she started to get really scared, not knowing what I was going to say.
When I finally worked up the courage to say "I'm gay", she let out a MASSIVE sigh of relief and said "OH...IS THAT IT?! I thought you were going to tell me the latest tests came back with a worse result than you lead on and that you were dying!"
She then said "You're my son, and I love you no matter what, not that being gay would change that because it doesn't really mean anything does it"
Then we hugged and just talked about it for about an hour and a half
She said she might need a little bit of time to adjust but that she's proud of me for having the courage to tell her I LOVE MY MUM!! Haha
Anyway, I always liked reading other peoples threads like these, they always made me smile and want to come out more and more each time, so I thought I'd post my own.
