    This is going to sound SO retarded, but yeah - here I go!

    Last night went out with some room mates to various clubs and on the way back, you have to pass through a mall which is really dark because they turn the lights off (WHY?!) and i was running through it asd saw the "slippery floor" sign too late. So I went over on my ankle and sprained it badly - but I thought nothing of it at the time "Oh, it's not much.... I'll walk it off." Foolish idea. When I got home I was still kinda numb to the pain from the drinks I'd had but i could see it was massive. So then I was like hrrrrrrm, better RICE it. But I didn't and tried to sleep.
    And then this STUPID ditz decides to drunk call me. I woke up to the sound of ringing and massive throbbing pain. And I was like: damn, what to do... (I'm new in my uni town so don't know where the A+E's are) so I rang a room mate and asked her to help. and she came in and as she was tending to my GRIEVOUS INJURY, I dropped the bomb. "You know I'm gay right?" She was totally accepting and everything......

    And I never thought coming out would be this easy. It's crazy. I then rang two friends from back in London and told them.
    Then i went to A+E and got me some crutches. and also.... nurofen sucks. I need different painkillers.

    ANYWAY! I had to get that off my chest, sorry for the convoluted narrative, I'm not the best at chronologically recounting events so you'll have to forgive me.

    (btw did I tell you I came out? *PRANCE*! )

    1. Congratulations on coming out!

    2. Sorry about the injury. What was the verdict, sprained or broken?

    3. Why did you choose that moment to say you're gay to her? I'm curious why in the middle of having your ankle tended you brought up that issue, which I would think was totally unrelated.

    Unique coming-out story, though, and best of luck to you, with your ankle healing and your new life beginning.

    Gentlemen, is anyone here seriously suggesting that American university students don't regularly drink themselves into oblivion? Let's not unfairly tar our British brethren with this distinction.

    muchmorethanmuscle saidHere in Chicago [on St. Patrick's Day] all the pubs are filled with either Irish Americans or 'supporters and fans' and they binge drink.


    Same in NYC! I'm partly Irish, and on that day when I was in college I would celebrate with the likes of Colleen O'Dwyer and Raymond O'Connor, and we'd drink ourselves silly. Not perhaps what our relatives in the old country were doing that same day, but the American Irish have their customs, too.

    Okay, so.....


    Like a week ago i booked a train ticket back up to London for the weekend as I'd been invited to go see (gay alert) the sound of music sing along... (by the guy who i told I was gay (he's gay too)). And in doing this i knew i was bound to see my family, so i resolved to tell them.
    So i got back Thursday evening and my elder brother was chilling in my room and i just said: "I'm gay." He went white as a sheet and sat on my bed rofl, and got hot flushes and all sorts. He's fine with it though and later said he was only reacted that way 'cos he realised all the pressure of grandchildren is on him. So Friday morning i hoped to get my mum by herself but she was with dad basically all day. So i left that as that and went out to tell my best bud...

    He reacted much better than I expected (especially him having "strict" Jamaican parents). Basically the initial omg your gay?/ reaction, then he realised I'm the same guy apart from the fact that I like guys. So after that i hopped on the tube to the guy's house who invited me to the singalong (me being so removed from pop culture i didn't realise you have to dress up... lederhosen LOL.) He'd basically made them out of white jeans (pretty good job - ill post a pic of the disgustingly short things I wore icon_razz.gif (later though). We saw it then ummm.... went to a gay club in them haha. (heaven, if anyone knows it?) I was like :O - first time I've been in a gay club big as that one...( and first time i've been in a gay venue as an out gay) So ummm that night was awesome... for various reasons *Cough* Although i did get an eyeful of dirty troll sex in the bathroom *pukes*,

    Got back today, as i crashed at his place, and my mum was out so i was like ohhh damn, She came back soon enough though. and I just dropped it in the conversation and she didn't even bat an eyelid. "Theo, I've known for years" and apparently she's been telling my dad that I'm gay for 4 years already. Still not told my dad as he pretty much went straight to sleep as soon as he got in.


    icon_smile.gif just felt like writing my thoughts... and experience icon_razz.gif.


    p.s Mums are awesome.

    As this is more a forum for debate (at least that's how it seems to me) maybe it would be more appropriate to post your ramblings, thoughts, and daily experiences in a blog. They're free, y'know.

    Just a suggestion. Usually when people post here, it's because they want opinions, advice, or suggestions about a question or problem. But I am glad you're ankle is not broken. Don't drink while you're on the painkillers!

    meh, post anything you like, Fable...I only ask one thing.

    if you're a brit, let us know in the first few sentences, cause then I can read your entire post with a British accent...it makes all he difference in the world, believe me.

    btw, I've heard of drunk dialing, drunk macking, drunk smoking, drunk stripping, drunk sex, and drunk fighting...but I've never heard of drunk coming out, until now...

    I'll bet it wasn't the alcohol that made Fable come out. He was in pain, and probably in shock, and that can make some people nervous and talkative. It's nice that his friend was understanding, and helped him in a time of need.

    All I meant with what I said above is that his posts are long without having much of a point, question, or opinion.

    Lol tommy.

    Update: seems like my dad isn't entirely happy and my mum told him... even though I didn't ask her to.
    Came down to breakfast this morning and all he said was: "I have lost a son today"

    anything I can do apart from sit it out and see if he comes round?

    Also: who said I drank while I was on painkillers. Also: Why do people assume I was drunk?














    Please drink responsibly

    I would get an attorney myself. Slip n fall cases are like winning the lottery. If it is true that you are obliged to walk through a dark wet death trap to get out of some rathole club then, it seems to me, that someone is liable for your injury.

    Maybe I had difficulty following the narrative but who was the ditz who called you?

    Your flatmate sounds like a loving person. At least she took care of you and didn't judge you. I'd marry her.

    Oh well,

    Terry

    GREAT POST THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY NOT TO LONG
    and where exactly does the official rules say threads have to have a serious point, post an opinion, or ask for advice.


    True, it took me a while to realize you were 'our cousin, lol' but my thought wandered to the lawsuit that here in the states [where even a braggard/ public speaker/ self proclaimed advocate who brags of his 'prowess' in his promotional public skills out in the CA AREA in previous posts] should take up your 'cause', and even that 2day u would be eligible to file. NEAR here in Winston Salem, NC- about 70 miles off our mountain, we have a large mall that is broken into 2 parts, separated by a department store that turns off lites at 9PM ish [closing time] and places signs that many are unable to read in the darkness as u go thru to hit a resteraunt or go to the movies. We had one lady that fell, hurt her hip, and almost one month of suffering filed a lawsuit that netted her several million dollars AFTER legal fees.

    POINT IS:

    If here in USA, ur suffering, "irregardless of ur ' comin out ' even in NC"
    would net a large settlement whereas I believe
    in England, ur civil legal system I THINK is more difficult to win such settlements. (point of personal priv..... I have extensive knowledge of legal system as have several lawyers- 3 brothers and sister- from AG to a DA, yet know only of wut I read in Wall Street Journal pertaining to British law).

    I find some gud always cums from bad situtions, and do hope any suffering and pain have abated.
    Wish you well and better health!
