Only one person at my work knew. People IRL knew, said nothing and took his side only to come back to me years later.
So on a personal level I felt the need to say it out loud. It did happen. I've been hiding for 5yrs(thought it was six but it's not). I am not hiding anymore.
For my selfish self I needed to say it 'out loud'. For those who have been doing what I did, suffering in silence...there will come a time when you won't want to hide any longer. When you just can't.
Find help. Use the resources here and anywhere you can find them. Reach out. I have a long hard road ahead of me and so do you. Whatever you decide...plz, PLEASE make sure you are safe first and foremost.
XOXO to all.
Am I wrong to be so open at this point? I am getting a lot of positive feedback from my kids who lived thru it and this is what feels right. I am out and totally safe....the blowback may get ugly but I need to face this.
