    I've been hiding being gay for so long now - cause I was afraid that people would stop being friends with me because of this. Now I've finally decided to admit it, and people have called me kinky, retarded, lame (I could go on). Others have embarrassed me by sharing this information. Even my own frikin family doesn't approve - when I went to them for the weekend they kicked me out of the house.
    I'm super depressed (I've rarely felt depression before) and am thinking of getting pills for depression.
    I just dont know what to do anymore

    Hi RosesAreRed1,

    You've been incredibly brave by admitting your sexuality to others, so you should be proud of yourself for accepting who you are well enough to open up about it. It's a real shame that your family and other people you know have reacted so negatively, but it's honestly their loss, not yours.

    I would definitely recommend going to see your doctor and telling them how you feel, they will be able to suggest ways to combat your depression. I hope you start feeling more positive soon :hugs:

    Listen, there is nothing wrong with being gay, your friends and family are just being backward minded, its not the middle ages where people are ignorant its the 21st century and if your friends and family dont accept you then dont let that get you down because there is nothing wrong with you there is something wrong with them, as your friends and family are meant to support you and not put you down for no reason. Keep your head up and dont be around these toxic people dont let them get to you, maybe try and talk to someone maybe a friend or someone who accepts you as you, or go to some support group or see a therapist to talk about your depression and how to handle with your friends and family not accepting you. Remember dont let them get to you dont let them stop you from being yourself and being comfortable with yourself, being gay is okay and there is nothing wrong with it, remember your friends and family are in the wrong not you. I hope today you have a good day and i hope everything will be okay

    Your courage is immense for announcing this but remember there will always be haters and people who will try and put you down but don't let that stop you from doing anything!

    It is nothing to do with you don't forget that if they are so primitive and unaccepting of one due to their sexuality then there is a problem with them, not you.These people are obviously not worthy of your friendship etc you are too good for them they don't deserve your tears.
