    Very true. I do have a very healthy friendship circle and a very patient girlfriend. MH is an obstacle in everything I do, but I work full time after years of therapy and am able to cope day-to-day, which is probably why I place so much importance on comfort items.

    Perhaps the desire to reach out to the artists/creators indicates a longing for human connection. Reaching out here is a good way to get support. Taking steps to find human connections in face to face interactions could help as well. That's easier said than done for sure, I don't know to what extent your mental health is an obstacle.

    I just wanted to take a moment and tell you all that I am so proud of you for waking up to another day. I know it may be hard and I know you all are struggling, but what matters most is that you survived another difficult day- know why?
    Because you are strong. You have managed to fight those depressive thoughts and managed to wake up to another morning. I want us all to be proud of each other for still being here and not giving in to our suicidal thoughts. You all deserve better days and better lives, but don't forget how strong you are for facing your own battle.
    Sometimes, it may seem like you are waking up to the same morning or same day, but just try to believe in that one special day where everything changes. It's almost like war- there's almost no way to determine when the battle will end, but there will always be an ending. That day will come. Just keep it in mind.
    I wish you all the best day/night, and again: I'm so proud to see all of you who make it past each and every night. Every day you wake up to is another yesterday succeeded!
    Keep your heads up! You got this 🙂

    It's Monday 2:00 AM.
    Uncomfortable Feelings:
    Sad: discouraged, dispirited, sorrowful, small/powerless, disappointed.
    Afraid: unsafe, alarmed, worried, panicked, horrified. 
    Angry: outraged, irritated, hateful, disgusted/sickened, 
    Surprise: shocked, speechless, disillusioned 
    Where I'm feeling this:
    it feels like a dull, hot ache in my chest with some pressure like some hot invisible entity is sitting on me. My stomach feels very queasy, "alert condition yellow" as though tummy hasn't decided if it's gonna cramp or burn or both. It feels like a vice is tightening on my temples. There is an empty soreness behind my eyes. My throat feels tight. 
    Comfortable Feelings:
    Loving: compassionate, grateful, respectful
    Interested: curious, playful, receptive
    Accepted: wanted, helpful, appreciated, included 
    Confident: authentic/honest 
    Where I'm feeling this:
    A very small warmth in the center of my chest that grows with even, deep breaths. A small smile at the corner of my lips - from looking a cat meme, from reading a few posts here on DF got me saying to myself, yeah buddy. Me too. My tongue (which was pressed against the roof of my mouth) is coming to rest on the bottom of my jaw.
    I feel a little easier now that I've written this.

    Hertz reacted to lonelyforeigner in I feel like I was ‘accidently’ born gay   
    Same reason that women on TV are made out to big big-breasted sex vixens... It's all just stereotypes that people want to see. Being gay has no sway on your personality or looks, it's just random chance and the ones that get people's attentions are the flamboyant good looking ones. Just like no one notices the wall-flower but everybody pays attention to the Pamela Anderson types.

    I agree with the others that safety is important. I would talk to my doctor about PrEP (Pre-exposure prophylaxis). It's a medication that can be taken either continuously or around the time of the sexual intercourse, depending how sexually active one is. It greatly reduces the chances of getting infected with hiv. It doesn't prevent infection from other diseases, so using a condom is still advised.
