My Daughter Este


Este came out to me tonight. So crazy how everything happens for a reason. This morning I was on FB, and for “some reason,” I decided to write her a message. I “came out” to her about being a Muslim, and also told her about my “issues” with Sabrina. She wrote back, and “came out” to me. She came out to her family at a basketball game because she was tired of sneaking around with her partner, M. She sort of knew how her family would react and had put it off. I know she has a gay uncle, and I gather that he is not treated well.
I was shocked to hear that her mom got physical with her–slapped Este’s back so much that it scared Mark, who ran to get her grandparents. She moved out and moved in with M. in May.
With all the news about gay kids coming suicide, she was even worried about herself. She’s still in school, but fights with her mom by phone everyday. If she asks for more advice, I may tell her to not talk to her mom as much, and keep it short and sweet.
I am really glad she told me, though I wasn’t surprised by the news. She is such a great person. I want her to be able to talk to me, y phone or message, whenever. I wish I could make this all better for her, eventually things WILL get better for her. She will be in my prayers.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

    Thank you so muh for shareing. None of us are perfect! I don’t suffer from depression, although I probably should! I have had a horrible (mental abuse)childhood, check out some of the stories on my blog. That’s one reason I started a blog, is to let the steam out, so to speak, and get advice!
