Dear Oscar,
Suicide is never the answer! Please don't hurt yourself it's not worth it. I'm sure that would hurt your parents more than finding out that you are having these feelings. These is nothing wrong with you, you don't need to act like nothing happened. If your not into women then that is how it is. You can't help how you feel and who you are attracted to. It's no ones business but your own. You don't have to be ashamed of it. If you tell your parents and they are not accepting of it then there is nothing more you can do. Move on with your life. It sounds like you are very close to your mom and you love her alot. She sounds like she would be ok with it. I don't know how things are in Belize with Gay Rights and Homosexuality. But things aren't any better here in the United States. Your biggest allies will be your family. Good luck to you! I hope all goes well and you make it out ok.

And there is allot more horrible things i have lived.please write me at my email and tell me any comment about my story.
