First post! you do you, I’ll do me

Alright, so, this isn’t my first time blogging. It is, however, my first time using WordPress. If I move, I’ll be sure that the last post tells where I went!

So, here’s a little about myself. I’m one of those strange people you meet, I make an impression and I’m rarely forgotten. I am a mother of three children, a lesbian and I identify as femme (albeit a lazy one) and my pronouns are so related. I understand that not everyone in the LGBTQ (what are we calling it these days?) community doesn’t use labels and if you don’t, I won’t use them on you, but I do- for me. It just makes things easier for me, personally.

I live in the south, a small town that shall not be named. For personal reasons, mostly hate crimes, I came out- saw the world for a short span of time- and put my baby dyke self right back into my safe closet. I then ended up on drugs and spiraled out of control into a deep, dark personal hell. I will go into more detail on that later. I’m not as old as I feel like that makes me seem, I graduated in 2004.  I’m still there, only now, I’m not afraid.

I continued on a dangerous path until one day…I just walked out. That was the beginning of letting go. I lived, I survived and I had three children but I still wasn’t happy and only I knew why. I never lied to myself, I knew what I was doing and that it was wrong. So, I came back out of the closet. I hate the way that sounds. Still, I know that I can’t be the only one. I know there are others out there just like me, that need someone just like me. So, I’m just gonna do me, be me and I’m here if you need me. That’s the point of this blog, to tell my story, hope I help and give advice if I can at all.
