Coming out (+ I think?), confusion
So today, 5 days after I came out to my parents, they have gotten in contact with me for the first time.
They have not even attempted to address the giant elephant in the room, and seem to be talking as if nothing has happened. They're cracking jokes left, right and centre like always.
The only hint that they might even slightly address it is that they asked when I have a day off work - which they never do. I assume that means they want to call about it?
But it just seems to be like a total non-thing, but in the least reassuring way possible.
There's not been any use of name in any of these texts, unlike normal.
I just feel weird and uncertain and scared. Even if they do mean well by doing this it's just giving me anxieties. Even if they has just said at some point "Yeah we'll talk about that letter" or "We go the letter and everything's just whatever" I would have been fine.
But this total avoidance? It scares me. Especially after they'd made no attempt to contact me before now over some really mundane normal stuff.
Really not sure what to make of any of this
