Inner Turmoil

I have been questioning my sexuality since I was a freshmen in highschool. At the time, I was living an extremely sheltered life. I had very overprotective parents, and I had a school environment where abnormalities, in particularly that of sexual preference, were just not talked about. I didn't know the concept of homosexuality even existed untill I had gone through an entire year of confused fear and depression. I thought something was wrong with me. My parents attitude toward it made me feel worse. Because I spent so long not accepting reality, here I am at nineteen with absolutely no idea who I am. I am still ashamed of the way I feel because i was taught to feel that way, but I can't go on this way. I have no idea where to go from here. I guess I just needed to get this out. I feel like I'm being pulled in two different directions and there is nothing I can do about it. Being ripped apart by emotions that I can't contol and having no clue what to do to make it better........... (to be cont.)

First off, Welcome to Oasis!

It's amazing how quickly you can lose the confusion and shame once you get here. Just write what you think, what you feel, what you do, and know that somewhere people are reading it and empathising and wishing you the best. And, if you like, read what other people have written - you'll see what a great bunch of queers we are, and your own shame will diminish. You'll see.

And again, welcome. It's good to have you here, Smile.
