    I've been trying to work up the courage to come out to my family for a short while now and I finally had some time alone with my sister on a 7 hour car trip.

    I decided I wouldn't tell her until towards the end of the drive in case everything went horribly wrong, so when we crossed into the last state, I took a deep breath and said, "Courtney, this is kind of random and you might already know, but...... [long pause] I'm gay."

    No response.

    I looked over and SHE WAS FUCKING ASLEEP!!! icon_mad.gif

    Granted, it was 2am, but still... icon_sad.gif

    That was Monday morning.

    I've been staying with her since then and I've been trying to find an appropriate opportunity to tell her. I finally got one tonight and, yes, I made sure she was awake this time.

    For some reason, it was much harder this time around. My voice was wavering and my heart was racing. I was nowhere near as cool as I was the first time, but I did it.

    And she didn't care at all. Like, not even remotely. icon_biggrin.gif

    I feel fan-fucking-tastic right now.

    EDIT: I forgot... her response was, "God damn it. Now I have to get married and have kids."

    Ugh the only thing that's worse than coming out is coming out twice.
