Black Sheep???

I suppose every generation needs a noncomformist or two...and it looks like I'm it for my family.  My relationship with my parents is so strained that I consider a phone call with them a success if I'm not in tears, livid, or nauseous!  I barely know the extended family.  Mom's got 3 siblings and each of them provided me with cousins, but I don't know any of them well. 

And considering that last time I went to visit my grandparents I spent the most of the trip nauseous from the strain of holding my toungue...yeah.  My political views would shock them, my religous ones would appal them, and the fact that I'm bi would probably get me disowned!

I feel you. I have to hold myself back with my family too. I'm kind of em<x>bedded in the middle of all of it right now, tho! It's craziness! But I have to hold back and make like everything's all good with a big smile on my face, for fear of becoming that black sheep permanently. But I've been nauseous to my stomach for some time now. Anyway, good to know I'm not the only one that feels like this. Thanks for sharing!
