There is a pretty nice book called Living Two Lives: Married to a Man And in Love With a Woman by Joanne Fleisher. She also has a website and forum often called AJ that stands for Ask Joanne....looking for a link...Here is her website and the forum is on the left side.
As a mid-life bloomer myself, I can also recommend the Fleischer book "Living Two Lives" but I found the board on her site to be dominated by a few women who tend to run off anyone who suggests doing anything differently than they do, or expresses any sort of dissenting opinion. I also found the tone of the board to be so incredibly whiney and victim-minded that it totally turned me off. I hung out there, mostly lurking, but posting occasionally for about the last six months. I only decided it was not the place for me in the past couple of weeks.
I haven't found another board yet, and I'm not sure I want or need to. I'm dealing with my issues (which are legion, and not necessarily related to my sexuality LOL) with a therapist who has experience with women who have come out later in life. I'd suggest your friend start there... find a good, compassionate therapist who GETS IT.
Because it's totally different than coming out as a younger woman. Especially if you've ID'd your whole life as hetero... it can be quite the mind bender to realize and accept that you aren't.
Yes. This exactly. Though I still lurk at Joanne's site, I go elsewhere for inspiration on the journey. And a therapist who gets it can be difficult to find. But worth finding.
