  • is blood really thicker than water?

    My family treats me like an outsider. It has always been this way. As a child my mother was verbally abusive towards me. I ws also physically abused and sexually abused by family members. My mother did nothing about it,and even told a family member that i was lying about being abused. I am an adult woman who has been living on my own since the age of 17. No matter what i do,it is never good enough for my mother. She is a manipulator,who spreads lies around the family to make them think badly of me. So i just decided to start living my life for me and be around people who love me.It still is hard for me around holidays but i am coping.

  • why does family betray you?

    i have a 17 year old son who i don't even know anymore.He is a completely different person than the child I raised. My child has turned into a selfish person who makes me feel like he does not care about me. Recently,he asked for a car. I told him that we could not afford another car at this time,but that I was saving up for one.I planned to have the car for him as a surprise gift,but I guess i was not moving fast enough. My mother,whom I do not have a relationship with,has used her classic form of manipulation to turn my child against me.Me and my mother have never really had a healthy relationship,which is why i was always so passionate about my relationship with my son. My mother offered my son a new car,and told him that he would have to pay the car payments every month.I told him NO HE COULD NOT HAVE IT because I was saving to buy him a car with cash. Well my mother has fed my child all sorts of lies,even telling him that I could use his child support check to make car payments. But i have utility bills to pay and groceries to buy!!! She has basically made him think that I do have the money to afford the car, but that I wont allow him to have the car.Kids do not understand the finances that we parents have to deal with,so of course he believes her. Long story short, my son has moved out,and guess where he lives,WITH MY MOTHER! it hurts me so bad. I rarely even see my child, no calls, no texts, nothing! i cry alot. I feel so alone. My mother has always tried to hurt me, and she has always spreaded rumors about me to other family members, so i just stay away. It seems as though my friends and coworkers are more of a family than my own blood.I cannot trust anyone in my family, because my mother has manipulated them all, and now she has control of the one person I thought would always love me, MY SON. Now my son only calls me when he needs something. He basically has no rules at my moms house,and also has a car so he comes and goes as he pleases. In the state of Illinois it is legal for a 17 year old to move out,so I cannot make him come home. i am so tired of the emotional rollercoaster,I have sacrificed my whole life for a child that has grown up to betray me.

  • Should i stop trying to live "the straight life?"?

    I have been attracted to females since i can remember. For the last few years i have been open to my friends and family about being a lesbian and loving women.They did not like it at all. I recently broke up with my girlfriend. It was very painful. During this time, I turned to religion. It is so hard, I am trying to make myself like guys but it is not working. I feel more comfortable with females.From what I have heard being, a lesbian is a sin...I am afraid of going to hell. ...but i am so unhappy. i want to start dating again...BUT NOT MEN..I still am attracted to females. My family is so happy at my suddden" turnaround"....but if they only knew how i truly feel.

  • How do I tell my friend she wears too much perfume?

    I honestly think she sprays half the bottle everyday. I smells great, but she uses entirely too much at one time. My throat gets irritated and i sneeze non stop. I am not the only one who feels this way, our co workers say the same thing. When it comes to perfume, a little goes a long way.

  • Will I need my car in Chicago?

    I am planning to move there soon. Many friends who live there tell me that public trans and taxi's are plentiful. I could use the extra money from selling my car, if i don't need it. I will be living in West Chicago.

  • why do guys continue to hit on lesbians?

    I mean, no offense, but I make it pretty clear that i am a lez. These guys irritate me so much with their slick talk and lack of manners. One guy told me that i should give him a try in the bedroom and it would convert me to a straight girl...come on!!!...guys get over it!!!...we are lesbians!!!!

  • Anybody feel that your family can be more damaging than healthy?

    my family totally emotionally drains me. i mean nothing is going to change....i am still a lesbian when i wake up every morning. i think in some insensitive way they think their rude remarks and lack of support will change me, but it only pushes me away. i know there are some younger people who still share a home with their parents, but live in my own home. i have found that family is just a title and my "rainbow family" treat me better than blood relatives, so I stay away from them.

  • Why do some people have a problem with gay/lesbian people raising children?

    I have been out as a lesbian for seven years now. I am in a very happy committed relationship. My mother continues to say things like my son will grow up and be affected by me being a lesbian. She says he is embarrassed of me but would never tell me so. I talk to my son all the time he is 14 !!... old enough to tell me the truth about how he feels. He says he loves me and if i am happy, he's happy. But my mom always puts these negative thoughts in my head and makes me feel guilty for loving a woman.....why?She needs to run her own house and stop worrying about mine!!!...what do i do?

  • Why is my mother so critical and negative of my life?

    I am a grown woman. I left home at the age of 18 and haven't looked back. I am a single mom, i work full time, and go to school as well. My mom is very nosey and it irritates her that she does not know what goes on in my residence 24/7. She even criticizes how I raise my son, who happens to be a B average student and athlete. She points out all the negative things about me. It seems like when i have a smile on my face she tries anything to remove it. She told me I was gaining weight , i have actually lost eleven pounds!!..She asks questions about personal relationships, but it's my business and i can't tell her anything because she will twist it into something negative. I am very independant, never ask her for anything..all i need her to do is be a mother..why is that so hard?

  • Why are parents so supportive of gay rights until they find out their own child is gay?

    My mother and extended family never had a problem with gay/lesbian people (or at least i though they didn't. )I came out totally on my thirtieth birthday and my mom hates it. She hates to see me happy and open in my lesbian relationship. She thinks i should care what society thinks..but i tell her"who cares about society!!!". I just don't get it...we have gay and lesbian cousins in the family..why should i be any different..she is making me totally consider staying away from her.

  • Should i eliminate my negative mother from my life??

    It is impossible for me to talk to my mom or even be in her company without feeling a bad vibe. She is totally negative and even uses my son as her reason for me not to be a lesbian. I love my son, work very hard to instill values in him. Why is is that she can't see the good in me for who I am? I mean, I am not a drug addict or a murderer...i am just a woman who loves a women. Yesterday she made me cry over the phone because she continues to imply that i am putting my happiness before my sons happiness. I talk to my son all the time and he says if I am happy, he is happy...by the way he is old enough to speak his mind...he is 14. Should I eliminate my mom from my life altogether?..please help?
