Aethelwine’s story

My son took this photo.——————————————->

Someone from this site has been spreading false information about me and my family, here and on other forums. Recently a former user came to me and asked “Are you the one who has to move because you outed your son on Facebook?” WTF? Everyone who knows the truth knows this is not true. Our son came out on his own to extended family and friends via Facebook on the last day of school. He tagged me in his coming out post. For an entire year before he came out to his family he dealt with extreme anxiety and depression. He had panic attacks before school and many times he couldn’t leave our vehicle when I pulled up to school to drop him off. I turned around and he stayed home. He was fortunate to have a stay-at-home parent. He missed 31 days of school that year due to his panic attacks. His panic attacks were due to living in a small rural town full of bigots. He knew he wouldn’t be accepted here. I was the first person he came out to. After a year of not understanding his struggles I finally knew, and at that moment I knew we had to move. He said he wanted to come out to everyone but not until he knew for sure he didn’t have to return to this school. I gave him my word, so he chose the last day of his 7th grade school year.
apparently I was “playing the victim” during this time according to some. I’d love to see how they would deal with all of this.

We are moving for a better life, better school, closer to family and to live closer to the medical facilities our family needs. The person spreading these lies has a strange fascination with me and is spinning my words to fit her agenda, whatever that may be. She needs to leave my family alone and focus on her own life. I’d like to thank everyone who has been supportive and those who came to me to ask for clarification because they knew the gossip didn’t sound right. My family is blessed to have your support.
