Read your posts Gabbahey

Weird how you say you feel that you adapted into homosexuality, because people thought you were gay. I often feel exactly the same. Until i began stressing about my sexuality, i didn't see men as attractive. Now i find virtually every man i ever come across to be attractive. This isn't 'coming to terms' with something. I have changed. And i blame obsessing about who i am for that. I belive our brains are so powerful that if we believe strongly enough, we can convince ourselves of anything

Hi Nonchalant,
Ive been reading this post through interest, my opinion would be, and please don't be offended by this, that you are obsessing way too much regarding your sexuality. From what you have written I would say straight with issues directly relating to your childhood abuse.

Anyway thats not why I'm replying, today I read an article in a magazine and it spoke about the following organisation which will apparently counsel you by email regarding sexuality confusion and I thought of you, I have no experience of them so can't recommend them but hey its worth a shot.

Good luck S

Makes sense to me.

And I have no quarrel with other people's self-understanding and happiness, or other people's understanding of their identity. People know what they know and feel what they feel.

BTW, just noticed the Northern Ireland location. I lived in Dublin for a year, and England for several years (ages 15-20). Long before I went psycho.

I should have stayed in England. The source of my illness is probably living in fortress America, the great consumer empire.

I was happier in that washed-up fallen empire, the UK. In my doubtless faulty recollection, it was quiet, dingy, a little run down, and utterly charming.

So besides the story of my insides, there's the story of my environment, which, as for all of us, is rather complicated.
