I would really appreciate support right now. I just had to say some things to my family that have been on my heart for a long time. I said them nicely, but the crap is going to hit the fan and I'm scared. Sometimes it's just nice to know that you aren't alone, know what I mean? Thanks.

Sometimes I am truly humbled by the affection and friendship here. Thank you.

I don't have high hopes for it turning out well. But just saying something has brought me a small measure of peace - I hope that will be enough.

And good luck with the blow-back.

Can you tell us what kinds of things you will tell your family? I thought you needed a hug because of your baby, but if its the family, then I'd like to know why they would get mad at you as much as you seem to fear they will even if you are expecting.

Dear heavens SO, you ascared me with this thread title!! Don't do that!

all jibbing aside, I hope that things go well for you. I have a pretty *interesting* family myself and I know how families can get sometimes when they hear things that they would rather ignore or pretend aren't there (if that makes sense?) so you have a great big bear hug from me

The other shoe dropped today. I just received another e-mail from a family member with such caring gems like "Do you expect me to just stop living because you moved away?" I'm honestly sorry that I said anything because I don't think I can do this. I expected anger, but to be mocked hurts too badly. I'm not sure what to do, but I can't take this level of stress. Earlier today I started crying (loudly) outside of the public library in front of my poor children and various strangers.

Thanks for the hugs. I need them.
