Hi, my name is Bri, I'm 27 years old and I'm poly. *whew* Now that I've got that out of the way...
I'm also a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister (let's not go into my family history...you would need a book for it. ;-) ), and a student! Right now, I'm going to Sountern NH Univerity for my BA in Psychology. I'm in a Saturday morning class right now. Most people say I'm crazy for taking a Saturday morning class, because not only am I in class 8:30 am to 1:30 pm, I also have to give up most of my Friday nights so I can get some rest.
My daughter is going to be 3 on May 2nd. Time sure does fly, it seems just like yesterday I was holding her small body in my arms. Well, ok, not so small body. When she was born, she weighted 9 lbs 1 oz. Yes, a big baby. She's also very active.
Today looks like it's going to be a good day. I just might go to the park with her, run her around a bit. Who knows. I do know that I have to do some homework tonight. I have a test I need to finish and some chapters that I need to read for class. And I have to study for my midterm on Saturday (AHHHH!!).
So, I have a question for all of you (and yes, I'm looking for answers!). How do you come out as Poly to family members?
This is something that I'm trying to get though right now. Most people don't understand what poly is (they think it's swinging *rolls eyes*) so I don't know how to talk to anyone about it. That and I'm worried that when I do come out as Poly, someone might try to take my daughter away from me. That's what terrifies me the most.
