Mom this time. I'm not sure she's taking it well. I decided to do it over text because frankly I suck but it's better than choppy Zoom.

@Cathymarinara Thank you. 💚

@andi ***hug*** I wish it could've gone better with her, but, it sounds like this was much as expected. But.. yes. It's *done*. That's no small feat.

And ultimately, of course, it's your life to live - and where 2021 looks like opening a new chapter. ^_^

@porsupah Yep. Alas it's as I always feared — see sees it as a "debate"... 😖

Coming out to immediate family 

@andi Oh, gods. (Thank you Guardian et al) That's not going to be easy to counter, given it all comes down to her accepting that *you* know yourself best.

Hopefully, it's just a matter of time, beginning perhaps with a grudging "if you say so".. but, the big thing is /she knows/.

@porsupah Lol she's way too conservative to read the *Grauniad* of all things. Gratefully, in this instance.

I think I communicated a lot of stuff she didn't really think about before and I really don't know if she gets it. I really need to find a therapist immediately...
