Hi guys...

well it`s my first time checking out this web site here.. i find it interesting.

I moved to a new city a few years back.. on my own, and now i realize it`s time for me to get help. I`ve always been a loner, i don`t have many friends.. i just spent the whole weekend on my own.. in my apartment.. with no human contact.
(it wasn`t by choice)

I have straight friends who i`ve had for years and years, and i have gay friends (who i flush every 2-3 months)... i find problems with everyone and find excuses to stop hanging out with them. (except for my straight friends).

ok, i won`t talk about my whole life and my problems feeling alone in the gay community, but last year i felt i needed help to work things thru and i went to see a shrink. It didn`t help me much cuz i only talked and talked, but i feel i need someone to talk too and help me work things out. Now i went to my doctor and she told me to get an evaluation from a psychotherapist, but it takes WEEKS and WEEKS to get a call back.. i haven`t heard from any of them and i`m going thru another little depression now.

anyways.. any ideas or just someone understanding would help now.

thanks
Kev.

Kev,

Welcome. There are all kinds of support groups in areas...check your newspaper or yellow pages. I hate to think you must wait weeks before you can talk with someone.

I understand your need for feedback. Don't settle...find the right counselor for you. Talking and getting it out is great...but you need someone that will help you see what to do with it once it is out.

I wish you luck.

KevinJ,

Feeling alone, scared, and depressed are signs that there are likely other things going on for you? Being gay, certainly brings on it's lot of 'downers' and painful times, but it's likely not the whole source of the difficulty.

...can you tell us more about yourself and what's going on? We may be able to offer some insight here while you're awaiting a visit with a therapist.

Dear Kevin, I feel like an idiot. But I will continue.you are gay, Right? The truth is this: Jesus did not create you to be that way.I don,t care who I offend on this website. Christ will set you free from the pain and confusion you are feeling right now. He loves you Kevin. More than you can ever know. Being gay isa _-_choice>Sorry for all these errors. I am human. Anyway thereis a way of life that will bring you happiness and fulfillment.I don,t consider myself to be a religios fanatic or anything< but please hear me out. You were not meant to be gay. Sayeth the Lord, "I Am the Way the Truth and the Life."The Truth shall set you free Kevin. I Know.

all,

I feel I certainly do need to clear this up…being gay is normal. Being gay is not a religious or sinful aversion, it is another biological form, which does exist on this planet in more than just our species.

All of the major counseling and medical associations are now in agreement that being gay is an unchangeable, "alternate way if you will" of being born/developing.

We hear a lot of the religious side of this argument, therefore I feel it necessary to set it clear, that whether people of certain religious faiths believe otherwise, being gay is okay, and for all intensive purposes, unchangeable. You're stuck with who you are in that area of personality.

Many people of religious faith believe that being sexual in more than one way is perverted, wrong, or sinful…this is a small way of thinking, and I hope we here, are able to open our hearts and minds to people who are different from us, deeper than skin color, culture, and religious beliefs.

Truth,
You dont offend people by your statement. You just invoke our pity that you see things like sexuality in such a black and white way. Research the history of your religion - you may learn some things that surprise you, i did. Take the ethos of religion and live by it if you like, that is great, but to read just the words of assorted scriptures without ever understanding their true meaning is in my view ignorance. I know that somewhere in the Bible there is talk of " Judge not, lest ye be Judged"...
