Gabbie and I had The Conversation last night.
She'll be getting her own place in a few months, but not yet.
I acknowledged that I'm gay so that's out in the open again. I will start dating men, probably after she seems happy and settled.
A big part of me wants this separation to be temporary, like the one from 18 years ago, so I'm willing to wait and hope.
I'm sure you're all happy for me, but I'm not happy at all. Yes, it's probably best in the long run but I'm really depressed right now. I'd rather not be offered any congratulations or best wishes or condolences or anything else right now.
At this point, I don't know what anyone could say to me to make me feel better.
I need time to adjust and mourn.
