I Feel A Little Famous


I wrote yesterday about my bad back and how if I were going to be laid up all day, I might as well take advantage.

I did just that.

Recently, I opened a Medium account. I posted on the account for the first time yesterday after weeks of contemplating what I would write.

It hit me as I was driving, as most of my thoughts do, and I knew exactly what I must type.

I’ve been struggling with a piece for over a year now. It has to do with my sexual identity and my mental health issues, and how they are both linked – in a way.

I put myself out there yesterday.

The response I received was beyond what I could have imagined and in less than 24 hours.

Of course, I blasted myself on a few of my FB groups and Twitter. But plug along, I say. How will people know if you don’t say something?

I will link the story here and if you choose to read it, let us know what you thought.

Denial – Medium Post

Sometimes, in life, you must follow your heart, and chase the dream.

  1. That was an amazing write. Not easy to let it all hang out. I feel those who are gay etc, struggle with some of the same issues as non gays, but because they are gay, those issues are somehow different. But I’m not gay and though I feel there is nothing wrong with others identifying with a different sexual identity than mine, I can only show my support and caring to all as equally as I can. Thanks for sharing. It took guts. And it doesn’t matter what others think, only what you think. It’s your life, not theirs.

    1. Thank you. It’s different because some people are made to feel inferior or made to believe if they like the same sex they will be shunned and burn in hell. Especially if you grow up in a religious environment. I did. So it can be very difficult. It goes for anyone made to feel different. Some people believe the I love you way out is death, like I did at one point. Having a supportive friend(s) and family is so valuable. So yes, just be there. Thank you for your words. I agree on all levels. And thank you for reading.
