I’m glad you’re fine. Congratulations on your boys, I’m sure their lives are so much better than those different from them, thumbs up for them to realize that. And lucky for the women in their lives, I hope they appreciate what they have.
As for doing what I have to do from time to time, that’s the survival mode I’ve been forced to be in, like you yourself said you also do. I just wish there wouldn’t be a need for it.
I envy you on you gay friends AND on your prolific writing here. I, for myself, am unable (on both counts) of that. I’m more of a loner and a reader (lately, at least). I’m glad I found this place, which was completely accidental, but fortunate (incidents aside).
