I waited until last night to call my mother. I didn't want to hear it on Thanksgiving. She immediately took over the subject of why we did not attend Thanksgiving dinner. I got the typical "We love him for who he is....he is going to have to learn to accept that people don't feel comfortable around that....he has chosen this lifestyle." I was speechless. I couldn't get a word in and I feel terrible now. There was no agreeing with what she said but I felt by being non- confrontational with her, she feels she is correct. This has caused a knot to be in my stomach all day. I'm just sick that I'm so passive and let her railroad me like that. Well...then I called my sister. Mainly to tell her that I love her and I don't want there to be a wedge between us. She told her husband to tell me that she was "rocking the baby and couldn't come to the phone". She has yet to call me back. Her message is loud and clear. Needless to say this hurts.
