We can talk on IG?
Thank you so much

Hi I read your post about your struggles with your parents about being gay, and I know some replies have probably been awful, but please know that something will work out. You're mom is confused but I hope someday she'll understand and remember she loves you so much. You of course are not sick and do not need treatment, and please never fear being who you are, and I know we don't know each other but I hope you will keep being strong and keep fighting for your rights and your love.

You’re beyond amazing thank you so much for your support.
It’s funny how strangers can be more caring and loving and supportive than your own parents. Oh well thanks! Stay wonderful!

Come live with me

Well thank you for the offer anon

That really really sucks. I would tell the nice therapist about the situation, that she could help shield you (if you're comfortable lying, say she's helping, that sort of thing.) I'd move to Canada for university. (I'm American, the U.S. sucks.)

As you all know I came out to my dad a few months ago he took it kinda well.
I live in the middle east and being gay here is a taboo.
My dad recently told my mom about me being gay (2 weeks ago) she’s taking it very badly.
Now I have to go to 4 different doctors…

Just take suicide, it does not get better ever. I’m surprised your parents didn’t disown or kill you since you’re in the middle eastern

You are one hell of a troll and I won’t waste my time talking to you.
Your words are irrelevant to me so don’t bother commenting.

Aww sorry vanilla ice, the truth is too ugly? Anyway, adieu. One day you will realise your mom will never accept you.

I’m actually laughing cause you legit have no life 😂

Hey tell the psychologists the truth about how your parents arw hoping you will get "cured". She will help your parents understand that it's not a mental disease and all. Good luck friend. I wish you all the best.

Will do! Thank you so much.
I went to see the first doctor and he’s such a liar and he promised my mom that he’s gonna “cure” me.
Anyways he just wants money it’s so obvious and my mom’s too ignorant to figure this out she simply wants me to get “cured”.

Hi. Please stay strong. I'm also gay and Lebanese, but I don't intend to come out to my parents. I think what you did was extremely brave, but you've put yourself in a bit of a dangerous position. I'm only 16, but I realize that living a decent life in the middle east as an LGBT person is impossible. Have you considered moving? I'm applying to universities in the US and Canada and don't intend to come back.

Hey! Come off anon so we can chat about this as you are Lebanese as well and yes I’m gonna move out asap not sure where to yet tho.
In all honesty my advice to you would be not to come out until you’re sure you don’t need your parents in the future. (most likely financially)

Now I have to go to 4 different doctors… (psychologists and therapists) so I can get a “treatment” and turn straight or whatever. 

My mom keeps saying very hurtful things to me, I’m super depressed and I’ve never been this suicidal. 
For example: “you’re sick, you need treatment” “I won’t let you do this to yourself” “I can’t accept your life choices and drive to hell with my own hands” “you can’t have a family” “I hope you die if the treatment doesn’t work cause I don’t want you to be gay” etc…
And now I’m basically being watched 24/7, whether I’m on the phone or on the computer (she’s sleeping now) 
One of the doctors I’m going to see has made the decision for all psychologists in Lebanon that being gay isn’t a mental illness so hopefully she’ll help me and try to fix things with my parents. 
Should I tell the psychologists the truth? That I’m here so my parents accept me and I’m not looking for a “treatment”? 
I’m planning on moving out after this year if this doesn’t work out with my parents and if they still insist on me getting a treatment (even if it involves taking pills) 
I really don’t know what to do, I need an adult’s help with advice or a professional that helps me with a plan or something? 
How much should I save up? 
Where should I go to? 
Etc etc. I should add that my dad said if the treatment doesn’t work they’re gonna have to live with it and accept me (they’re planning on a very long treatment perhaps it might take 3-4 years they wanna keep trying) and that they love me no matter what (so not true or else they wouldn’t be doing this to me) They know the treatment leads to depression. I’m waiting on your advice, please I really need help.

i don’t know what to say… you are so amazing and courageous though… Promise me to NEVER lose hope because if i hear that you have harmed yourself EVER, I will be absolutely devastated, even though i don’t personally know you. Just know that WE care and WE are here for you and WE respect you and WE love you. Oh, and you are most definitely not “sick” or need therapy because of the way you were born. You are a unique and special individual who has many people who genuinely love you. Keep your chin up and keep fighting.

Thank you so much, you are amazing. Your kind words made me smile tbh stay lovely!

It depends which way you want to go. Do you want to keep your parents in your life or out of it for a little while? (For YOU time) Would you ever consider "taking back your word" just so they will stop? What do you want, besides moving out? Depression will find it's way to drag you down for an infinite amount of time and we don't want that. We want it to end now. You should be happy, now.

I don’t know whether or not I want to keep them in my life but I don’t really care about them as much as I care about my future (I’m not being selfish just being honest)
They love me with conditions therefore we’re not an actual family and my family has issues it’s pretty complicated and confusing I’d tell you all about it if you have the time

I don't know if it's helpful at all but regarding your last post just remember there's absolutely nothing wrong with you and you will always have support on here
