Any other mamas who were married to fabulous men, had sweet babies and then realized they were gay? I'm at that point in my life. Married for 8+ years to my best friend and we have 2 beautiful kids (who are 8 and almost 6). It's been in my mind for at least 7 years, but not until now has it finally dawned on me that I'm not just bisexual, but actually gay. It's a scary process for me since I've built my life around heterosexuality, and the thing is, I love my husband. He and I have our issues, of course, but we are almost always on the same page and get along really quite well. He is very supportive of me, but feeling the need for an intimate relationship with someone, not just a brother/sister relationship. I completely empathize, but good heavens it's sad to think of giving up my best friend (and many of the dreams we've created together)!
Anyone else been through this process? How did you know absolutely that you were gay and not just "going through a phase"? I don't want to make any permanent decisions until I can face it head on with an unshakeable knowledge that this isn't going to change.
Any advice, experience or stories (etc) any of you can offer? I could really use some different perspectives right now... Especially from openminded, natural-minded mamas!!
