Posts by AmyY

I was here obsessively during my daughters' baby/toddler years.  Haven't been here in years.  Someone referred me to the Holiday Helper thread and I came back.  My old username worked!  Haha  I even found the thread back in November of 2005 that made me realize I'm not straight.  I'm also not AmyY anymore.    I should probably go change my username.  Back then I was a married-to-a-man SAHM of twin babies/toddlers.  Now I'm a happily single lesbian mama who works full time...

Just wanted to chime in also to say that I am not posting much at MDC at all really, but I am checking this thread regularly. It helps me tons to read everyone's accounts of their family life, even if circumstances are different, I can relate to everything. Thank you everyone for posting. COAMLB...
Quote: Originally Posted by PenelopeJune Thanks guys. It felt soooo good to admit that. It's pretty sad that it took me so much courage to "come out" online to a bunch of people who don't know me. How the heck will I tell my DH? I think I'll just start dropping hints left and right until he gets it. Although guys are so dense about that kind of thing. Dropping hints never works when it comes to telling him what I want for my birthday. Hey Amy, you...

I'm letting him be ready for that. His co-workers at one of his jobs didn't know but I didn't know that they didn't know and I outed myself to them recently. H now has 2 part-time jobs (I was the working parent). So I don't see him too often. I think this has actually helped us out...

I'm just looking into finding a book called, Married Women Who Love Women, by Carren Strock and From Wedded Wife to Lesbian Life:...

There are some resources out there for those of us going through this, and they all acknowledge that this is a big thing, however we choose to approach it. I'm out to my H and as I move forward I feel greater relief being more out, even though it looks like baby steps to others I'm sure. I think that's key, what gives you the greatest...

The goal is to prevent this problem from coming up again--what kinds of agreements might...
Sphinx, you didn't kill the thread. Most of us are probably looking for other people with the courage to put it all out there on teh interwebs first. The Ethical Slut, you say? Great book title... a fun read? I don't consider myself bi or poly, but could use some communication tools.
I'm in a similar situation, dragging on, not sure what's next. Not fitting in to the bisexual threads so much either. I'll be back later too.
