After 15 years of knowing I was gay, and 7 years of being in

After 15 years of knowing I was gay, and 7 years of being in a committed relationship(with my now wife) I am finally coming out to my family. I have driven myself crazy with this double life long enough.. yet I am completely and utterly terrified. I am finally ok with who I am and have an amazing support group of friends and family of my choosing, but the thought of losing my parents and grandparents is overwhelming. I am just so scared, anxious, depressed, and already want to climb back to the safety of my double life.

Before coming out to your family, it might be handy to read some pages on what is the best way to come out and how to be prepared for negative reactions.

The wikihow has some interesting views on it.
