I Was...I'm actually now 24.....but I joined this group to let others know that there are people here who can be there for you if you need it.
The years between 12 and 18 were the hardest time of my life, and not just normal teenage angst.
It was the greatest time of discovery and learning about my self but it came with some heavy costs. I was ridiculed, shunned, beat up, kicked out of my house, arrested, and spent half my teenage years with a social worker and psychiatrist......all because of my choice to like girls more than boys, and the intolerant reactions of others.
But I survived.
It won't be this way for most of you...but you have chosen a path which is different so there will always be those who don't....or don't want to understand you.
I wish I had had someone to talk to as a teenager who got what I was about. If you want to talk to me.....I'll do my best to be there for you.
Listen girls...it has to be comfortable for you and I'm learning this place is full of creeps and posers too. You don't have to add me or break through EP security settings. They are there for a reason.
Just leave your comments here if its more comfortable and maybe we can talk about things together.
Be well girls......Issy.
