    Most People Don't Understand

    What I've noticed is that most people don't understand it when you tell them that you don't want to talk to your parents. I'm almost 30 years old and have had a total of two conversations with them in the last 8+ years. When I lived with my husband's grandmother for awhile she...

    The Ultimatum

    My parents and I haven’t really spoken to each other since I moved back with Corrina. They weren’t too happy about that. With time I thought they’d grown to accept the situation. However, deep down I think they could never approve me being in a lesbian relationship...
