I had always had fantasies about other women but that's all I thought they were, I went out with a lot of men, I say men because I really didn't have a lot of b/f's when I was younger... I joined the Army when I was 17 and I knew there were a lot of lesbians in the army, but nothing happened, I used to think that maybe there was a secret code or word or something and no one was going to tell me because they thought that I was straight, I didn't know what to do, I ended up getting pregnant and married, this lasted 3 years, then I left but by then I had 2 children, anyway I got married again about6 years later, I did try and tell my husband I thought I was a lesbian but he didn't want to hear it.

I promptly burst into tears and admitted I was...

its 12 years down the line, my kids totally accept who I am and always have done as have my parents, in fact I have been very lucky in that I have had no negative comments about my sexuality... I have had 2 long term relationships and I an now with someone who I can see me spending the rest of my life with, I am so happy that I didn't live a lie any longer and I just wish that at 17 years old I had realized that there is no magic word or code, you either are or you aren't., that all I had to do was "be" and I would have been accepted into the lesbian army circle... such a long time wasted...
