I just want to start off by saying i’m new to this site and have never posted anything so..here i go. I’m just very confused when it comes to my sexuality and i don’t really know what to think. I guess i’ve been contemplating it for a while but only this past year (my last year of high school) has it really presented itself as a major issue. I’ve been feeling increasingly anxious towards the latter part of my final year, and i was so sure it was just nerves for university. It came to the point where i knew i needed help to cope with it because i was getting panic attacks almost everywhere i would go. I started going to see a social worker and it’s been going pretty well.However, my sexuality has been lingering in my mind more so than ever these past few days,and i finally decided earlier this week i would tell my social worker. I figured it was in pure confidence and only good would come from finally sharing my feelings. I still can barely believe that i actually did it! I was sitting in the room and as awkward as it started out i knew i had to tell someone and she was that person. I haven't really thought so much about it but i do think i might be bisexual maybe even gay, although it’s hard to know because i haven't don't anything sexual or had any type of relationship with a guy or a girl for that matter. Anyways, i was so scared to say anything because i’ve never told a single person, but i finally just said that i think i might be bisexual. And her reaction was great. she understood and helped me out by referring me to this site. I know that it will take a long time for me to not only figure out exactly who i am and what i’m sexually attracted to, but to come to terms with it too. I feel a bit better that i finally told someone what’s been bottled up in my brain for a long time, but i’m also overwhelmed and still confused because i know i have a long road ahead of me and have no one i can really talk to about it. I’d love some advice of what to do next because i feel pretty lost. Even just talking to people that have or are going through this same situation or something similar would help immensely.
Thanks : )
