A very personal piece published in The Pool

 Thanks to The Pool for giving me a platform to share  this story . I felt anxious writing something so personal that would actually be read by real readers. It draws attention to myself, and like others, I don’t particularly like being scrutinised. But I suppose I just want to get to the point where talking about these issues is no longer a big deal. Upon publication, I received an overwhelming response from friends and strangers who said it resonated, one of which had me in tears. The resounding message? People want to be heard, but like me for many years, they are scared of speaking out for fear of social stigma. Thanks for reading x
