I posted this as a message on another post so this is actually the forum. I have been having a real rough week. The thing that is driving it is sex and talking about it with my mom.

Heather I saw your reply I agree it just been really heavy to deal with and I just needed to talk about it and let it out.

Thank you I was just really struggling with it so I used the chat messenger to see if It would help and the operator suggested that use the message boards.

Heather,
If your parents don't want to talk about it, you can't force them to. Maybe you could try talking to a friend or a family member who is adult and experience with stuff like this. You can also talk to me about it and I will help you as much as I can.

I certainly wouldn't suggest anyone could or should force those conversations (in fact, in my other response to Cosima about this, I addressed that expressly) so I'm not sure what this comment direct at me is pertaining to?
