    I just watched this clip of Ellen Page speaking

    at a conference for LGBT. What an incredible speaker. She has such passion and courage. She just announced to the world that she is gay. Maybe her words will give you the courage to face your problems, and mine too. http://variety.com/2014/film/news/ellen-page-announces...

    (even though he is no where near perfect) who takes care of me very well. I'm so bored sexually I could pull my hair out. I resent him for screwing around on me so many times over the years. I have gotten to where I literally don't care to take care of my house or anything...
