First journal entry

Hi, I'm Ali. I think I might be gay or bisexual. I have absolutely no clue. I've kinda wondered since I was 10, but I mostly just pushed it to the back of my mind. I'm thirteen now, and I think I might have a crush on a girl. If you'd asked me a week ago if I was straight, I probably would have said yes right away, but now i'm really confused about it. I'm half Indian and half American, and was brought up in America. I live in a really accepting neighborhood, but my mom is totally homophobic. I love to write and want to that for a living someday. If I can't do that, I'd like to study physics. My little sister has a serious mental disability, which makes my family life insane, especially since I'm really good at academic stuff. So...yeah. That's me.

Welcome to Oasis! Glad you found us here...

A good question to ponder is how many heterosexual kids wonder if they are gay for three years? ;-)

As for your Mom, sounds like you have time before you need to be telling her yet. Work on accepting yourself, getting comfortable with being gay/bi, find some supportive friends, write on here, and you'll be fine...

Welcome to Oasis...

Hope you find what you are looking for here. As far as your passion for writing, that is awesome. I hope you pursue it. I used to write songs and short stories all the time, and since my concussions and dropping out of school haven't done much. I kind of miss it.

Anyway, welcome.

Mental wounds not healing, driving me insane, i'm goin' off the rails on a crazy train- the ozzman

It's an awesome little community here, and I (especially) love new people. :D Don't worry, we don't bite or judge.
