After years of repression, Aneesa feels her father should learn her true sexual orientation. Aneesa asks her mother to set up and mediate a phone conversation, but her mother refuses to get involved. Aneesa gets upset and admits her mother's immature attitude has emotionally destroyed her. Desperate for help, Aneesa seeks refuge in Chris, who confesses his parents were appalled when he revealed his sexual orientation. With time, however, Chris's parents warmed up to their son's homosexuality, and learned to love and accept his lifestyle.
However, Aneesa's problems go beyond her parents. She's torn between the two women she's been dating, Danielle and Latonia. On the one hand Danielle is physically attractive and outgoing, but Aneesa is fed up with her pretentiousness. On the other hand, Latonia is fun and down-to-earth, but doesn't interact well with Aneesa's personality. Aneesa fears the single life, and doesn't know if she can deal with an emotional breakup with either women.
Inundated with medical debt, Tonya wonders why nothing good ever happens to her. Despite working two jobs, she can't afford to pay her medical expenses and college tuition. The news only gets worse when Tonya's doctors won't perform surgery on her until she pays off 850 dollars in overdue debt. Without enough cash to cover her expenses, Tonya turns to Darren for funds. Despite Darren's healthy contribution, Tonya realizes she won't be able to return to school and pay off her medical bills unless she qualifies for the patient financial assistance program.
Aneesa and Tonya, emotionally drained by their problems, seek comfort in each other. Despite her hesitation, Aneesa works up the courage to break up with both Danielle and Latonia. Tonya finally gets some well-deserved good news that she's been approved for patient financial assistance and has been completely relieved of all her debt.
