Hi again Marlbora and thanks for posting. Prejudice often sits in layers, like trifle - and race, gender, class, age and sexual orientation are often inclined to gang up together.
Also hi to Steve and a warm welcome to the forum. It sounds as though you're in a particularly tough space. I'm chuffed that you're seeing a counsellor - keep at it, even if it feels as if you've hit a difficult patch in the process. You're entitled to your life, the way you want or need to lead it - which may require making a few uncomfortable decisions in the future.
Please keep posting - I hope we'll hear lots more from you.
