Convo With Mom

Postby Marvinteck » Sun Nov 07, 2010 10:25 pm

I had a interesting convo with my mother last week. I called her up to chit chat with her. I asked if it was a big shock when I came out to her. She said actually she wasnt that shocked. She said when I called her up saying I have good news and I have bad news she knew something was up. As I was leading up to telling her the news and I was talking to her she said in the back of her mind she was saying "Please tell me you are gay, please dont tell me you are gay, please dont tell me you are gay". She said as a parent she has had her suspicions since I was a child but didnt want to believe it was true. When I was right about to tell her she said she was waiting for the shoe to drop. Once I told her the news she was okay with it and said she would love me unconditionally. My mother is one of my best friends and wouldnt trade her for the world. We talk about every thing and any thing that is on our minds. She gave me the birds and the bees talk when I hit puberty instead of my father. I have always had a close and open relationship with her. I even had a convo with her on how expensive makeup and cosmetics are recently. I miss her dearly since she lives 900 miles away. I miss our long talks and hugs. I try to call her once a week or so to check in with her. I realize she wont be around forever . That is why I have chosen to still have a close relationship with her and talk to her on a regular basis even though we are 900 miles apart.

Well, I live in Washington State and my mom lives in Mississippi. Since I moved to Olympia (almost 12 years ago), I call her every Saturday just to check in and see how she is doing. Most of the time the call is less than 10 minutes but it is always good to hear her voice and know that she is safe and sound.

...no, my family doesn't know that I am gay.

I was born at the Fort lewis army base in Washington state. My mother is a die hard church going christian and still doesnt agree with me being gay. Although she has been really supportive. I told my father as well and he has been supportive too. Im not extremely close to him and when I came out to him I didnt really care what he thought. He could accept me or disown me. He has burned to many bridges and he couldnt afford to lose me as a son. Im one of the only people in our family that still talks to him. His health isnt the greatest. Im trying to get closer to him before its to late.
