So from 2:00 to almost 7:00 on Christmas afternoon, K, My daughter, my youngest son, and me sad in an exam room at the hospital ER. Oh yeah, lots of fun.
In the end, nothing life threatening is happening, but no one has slept much over the past 2 nights, since she is up a lot.
One another note I am trying to decide if my life is moving at all.
K told me that she is disappointed, but not angry, that when she offered me a chance to recommit to her and our marriage that I did not jump at the chance. We have not talked much more about that. Since I am home from work for the next week, we will have plenty of chances.
I also sent her a note. In it I tried to explain where I am and the decisions that I have to make. From her perspective it's simple. She told me, "I can't believe you want to give up all you have for a penis." Of course, it is not that simple.
I made my fence analogy. I am in a spot between the gay world and the straight world and part of what keeps me from interacting with the 2 is that I am in the closet to much of the world. I can't make straight friends because I cannot be myself since I would be hiding a secret and I cannot really make gay friends because I can't be totally open with them either. Because of this, I am so lonely much of the time I could just sit and cry much of the time.
On the other hand, there are things that make me less lonely, when my younger kids meet me at the door when I come home from work. When my older kids tell me something that is happening in their life. Even K will help chase the loneliness away. When she smiles or laughs, I sometimes forget the struggles in my mind, but only for a little while.
I will never be able to be part of the straight world the way she is, since I am not straight and I never will be. So my decision point is not really do I live in the gay or straight world. The decision is really, do I keep the live I have and continue to live on the fence for rest of my life, endure the personal loneliness in exchange for the benefits I get the being the with people I love or do I come completely out, find a man (T or someone else) who I can love & be loved, and try to be the best father and friend I can be?
I don;t know if this is progress or not, but it feels like it. I have narrowed my list of choices from 3 to 2. I have explained them to K and she just might get it.
If I leave our marriage and family, she has to understand that there is more to it than just a desire for me to play with a hard cock. It about much more than just physical sex.
