@N1ghtW1ng, looks like you've got some amazing advice and support on this thread. I'm glad you just "swallowed the frog" so to speak (getting the most unpleasant task out of the way so that you can move on to more pleasant things). I'm sorry your parents have been less than supportive of you. It's probably natural to go through these stages with new news (the anger, then the questioning). But I'm so proud you stuck up for yourself and told them anyway, and did what was best for you. What do you think would help in terms of dealing with your parents' current reactions?
