"Nobody on my dad's side of the family speaks to me because I am gay and they are all a bunch of religious nut cases. The only info I have is what my mother gave me which isn't very much. It's just the simple fact of the matter that I…"
"Is there any in his family still alive you could ask? I am so sorry. We found out a few years ago that my long-passed mother-in-law had been married before she married my father-in-law. And she raised hell when my husband got a divorce...what? Hugs…"
It's been 8 years since my father passed and I feel like I have more unanswered questions for him now than I ever had while he was alive. When I was 18 years old my Father told me I had a half sister who was basically sold by my biological mother so she could buy drugs. I was also told that he was at the hospital when this supposed "child" was born and the baby came out half black and was not his so he signed over his rights. He always painted my mother in a terrible light as if she was a…See More
My name is Stephanie. I'm 24 years old and currently Reside in North Florida with my girlfriend of 8 months. I was born in Munster, Indiana but lived in North Carolina and Georgia for almost 20 years of my life. Was raised southern baptist and have been in the church pews my whole life. I've been in and out of Rehab but not because I had a serious drug problem but because my parents were pastors and did not approve of my "Homosexual" lifestyle. My step mom and dad were married 17 years before my father passed away. My biological mother was incarcerated at the age of 7 and I went 12 years without seeing or before she got locked up. I was a very troubled teenager (like most) and suffered from physical and verbal abuse from my step-mother since age 9. I was kicked out at age 18 and been doing it on my own pretty much ever since.
About my Loss:
My father died from pneumonia 2 days before Christmas. On the 23rd of this month it will be a month since he passed away. My father and me did not have a good relationship and were not good terms when he passed away. I did not attend the funeral because I felt like nobody wanted me there. I have not been able to afford to go visit his grave....it's only 4 hours away but i have no transportation. I don't know how to get closure, and am very sad and depressed. It's taking a toll on me and my girlfriend's relationship...as I have become a very angry person. If there is anybody out there...a support group...other gay ppl that have religious backgrounds please feel free to reach out to me. You are not alone. We can help each other get through this.
I wanted to write today about anger. After my son passed away, many of his friends wrote beautiful memories and feelings about him via Facebook. I didn't realize how much he meant to so many people and how many lives were touched by his kindness. However, what angers me is that not ONE of these "FRIENDS" ever came to visit him in the nursing home. He was in a nursing facility for 10 years and yet only his dad, myself and his stepdad came on a regular basis. I understand that it's hard to see…See More
Yesterday my headaches were bad so I managed to get an appointment with a doctor who was on call at my local surgery, since it was a Saturday morning.
As soon as I was in her room I just started to cry. I felt so silly, but being there…"
"Hi Ros, no, I didn't know about your injury. I'm so very sorry to hear about it, but don't worry, I'm sure this has nothing to do with your headaches, since it happened two weeks ago. Of course, you feel more vulnerable now…"
I can understand your many thoughts regarding Claudio's ashes. All these "what if's" go through our minds don't they? I often wonder about many things I do in the here and now and things I wish I…"
