Well, I'm sure you know the drill by now. If you don't know what my issues are then you can refer to http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=004391 and http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=004384.

Anyways, there has been no response whatsoever to the e-mail I sent as of yet, and I'm fairly certain my mother has checked her e-mail since I sent it, though I think perhaps she has been using another address. I plan on sending another one to my mom's other address. Hopefully, I will be able to get everything out in the open, even what I did not mention in the other e-mail.

You see, I've been thinking about my situation a lot, and I've come to this conclusion: my sexuality, including all of the practices I have mentioned, are a part of who I am, and whether those close to me agree or not, it is mine, and it's time I stood by it. I've determined that the problem, then, is just that I need to learn to trust who I am in its entirety. The reason I feel a loss of control over my sexuality is not because it is some sort of satan-esque deception or addictive path to doing wrong, but because it is part of who I am, and I cannot deny or escape from myself. I must simply aknowledge and accept that it is there and let my own conscience and my own beliefs guide it.

It seems, then, that my objectives are to learn to trust my sexuality and to be able to face my friends and family about it. I have said this to you all here so that you may be witnesses to my convictions, so that it may help me stand firmly by them.

Anyways, I have an e-mail to write...
