Hey everyone,

Congratulations to @Jellyelephant who was June's post of the month winner! You can see her post featured as an announcement on the homepage of the discussion boards :)

Here's July's Post of the Month nominations:

@AzathKelara's thread 'Asexuality (contains sex talk)'
So hey i'm asexual, and y'know, it took me yeeeears to realise that. I think i was 15 or 16 actually when i realised after yeeears of being confused in a hypersexual world.


What IS being "asexual"?

Asexuals don't experience sexual attraction to others. Female, male, non-binary - nope, we're not sexually attracted to any of you, nor anyone. That means we never have the urge to want to have sex with a specific person (which i understand to be a thing non-asexual experience at some point to someone - even if that's a celebrity dream)...Click here for full post.

Hey Jason

Welcome

I get where you are coming from. I sometimes feel the same so you're not alone with how you are feeling.

Hope we can help you feel and be, less alone.

Take care

Hey welcome

I'm sorry to hear of your situation and how you feel. You can talk to us about how you feel. But i strongly recommend speaking to your gp if you haven't already. You can see your gp without your family knowing and never know if they can help til you've tried. But it's not healthy to bottle up your feelings. And definitely haven't done anything wrong.

Comparing yourself to other peole can be quite damaging. Yet everyone is different. Everyone takes different paths and not every one is the same. But you have to focus on yourself and getting yourself where you want to be. Not where someone else is

Take care

Hey Lucie,

You say you're still on medication and have had lots of therapy? Maybe it's a matter of revisiting old coping techniques and anything else like that, that therapy taught you?

And Drea is absolutely right! Even someone with everything material that they could ever want isn't insusceptible to mental illness. Any sex, race, age, class; it doesn't discriminate.

You say yourself that your life is good but the problem seems to be in your head?
Gratitude is something I've started practising more; it makes me more aware of and thankful for the good things I have, like a roof and fresh food and the use of my legs. Just little things we usually take for granted, because some people don't have those little things.

How are you doing now?
