Hey guys, the name's Wesley. I'm mostly here to find some clarity on my sexuality, and to hopefully find a few new friends to chat with.

I'm a pretty chill guy, and I love to talk about anything, really. Philosophy regarding morals and "spirituality" especially are some of my favorite topics. I'm also kinda crazy from time to time :crazy:

I've been diagnosed with a dissociative identity disorder, and it's part of the reason I'm here. Basically... I'm an incredibly emotional person, but I am also very detached from my emotions. Sometimes life doesn't feel totally... "Real", and I have a lot of self doubt pertaining to my sexuality because of it. I don't have multiple personalities, just this sort of emotional confusion and occasionally childlike attitudes. (I'm lazy, to say the least).

And.. yeah to put it bluntly, I've also internalized a LOT of homophobia. Feel free to beat me up if I accidentally let some of that out. Been taught for most of my life that this stuff is disgusting and wrong and what not, but I will happily say that regardless, I LOVE YOU GUYS! Haha. A place that's free to be me without being regarded as weak or weird sounds like heaven.

Ohhhh I know what dissociation is like—not particularly pleasant to say the least. Though, my experiences with it come from having an anxiety disorder rather than dissociative identity disorder. Anyway, welcome!

I'm sorry to hear you've internalized so much homophobia over the course of your life. That's quite unfortunate! Hopefully spending time here will change some of that!
