“So... I’m not straight. I mean, I like men... but not just men. I’m into it all... like people... Im attracted to people” -Me at the beginning of my coming out journey.

Coming out publicly wasn’t easy for me. I don’t exactly have a coming out story, but I can say for the longest time I was confused as fuck. Felt a lot of shame. But as I grew up, I started to discover more and more about my sexuality and embraced it.
I’m grateful to be able to come out and feel safe in doing so... not everyone has that opportunity or privilege. And I’m thankful for those who made a day like today possible.

World Mental Health Day🌹
Mental illness is something that affects everyone at some point in their life. It is very common but it is also very common that it goes untreated.
How can that be changed?
We talk about it.
We normalize it.
We understand it.
I live with mental illness.
I am medicated.
And I used to be so ashamed of it.
I decided to start a mental health series for myself as a form of therapy but I have decided to share it with others in hopes that it can help inform and create a conversation.
End the stigma.
The start of my series focuses on one of my mental illnesses, OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) and discussing how there isn’t just one type of OCD.
I go into my subtypes and discuss how it all affects me including my intrusive thoughts and mental/physical checklists.
I had no idea that there were names to what I was going through. But through many forms of therapy, I have been able to better understand what I’m experiencing when it comes to my OCD.
I will have the first part of this photo set attached with my first journal entry and it will be available through Patreon.
I want to thank @katattackphoto and @amanda_mcgahey and express how incredible grateful and thankful I am to these two for teaming up and collaborating on this project.
And thank you to @jessehazelip for providing us with the location.
Remember to reach out to the people in your life and let them know you care about them. That you’re grateful for them.
Remind them they are not alone.
Let’s start the conversation.

I feel angry and sad and confused and triggered.
Some say it’s like we are living in a nightmare but really, it’s just waking up to the reality of our world. Our country, our system, was designed to do what it’s doing.
And it’s fuckin disgusting.
Reach out to the survivors in your life and let them know you are there for them.
Find out what more you can be doing to help and support.
And to all survivors out there, I see you. I hear you. I believe you. And I thank you for everything you’re doing to survive. We will get through this together.
I love you.

Today has been full of emotions and has been very triggering for so many.
I am a survivor of sexual violence. Countless times over the span of 20 years or so. Individuals I trusted to protect me, individuals who I thought loved me, people I didn’t even know, and people who had control. I started speaking out about some of my experiences but I have remained quiet about the majority of it. I haven’t named all of my abusers because I am terrified.
These survivors are heroes.
