I Came Out Today
I did it. After 38 years I came out of the closet to my wife. It went like I expected. I hurt her. I wish I could take it back. Betrayed, facade, pretending, lied to, not who I thought you were, were some of the phrases. She said that she thinks back and feels like our sex was dirty. She feels used. I should have not came out. She says that she needs some time to wrap her head around this. We spent 6 hours in the hospital ER. Her pulse was at stroke level plus other issues. I told her I am still here. I am the same person. I feel alone. I feel rejected. I feel like I have destroyed my relationship. I hope it gets better.
