Thanks, guys. It could have been worse, honestly. Mostly just annoying and (more than a bit) invalidating. We’ve both been so busy since he moved in that we haven’t had much time to go out, so it’s felt a bit like living in a vacuum. I forgot what it’s like to have to justify myself to clueless people.
But whatever. I’m more comfortable with myself now than I’ve been in years, and he loves me no matter what. I don’t need anything more than that.
