Holy shit why is their so much hate going on in this thread? Have you guys ever heard 'to every man his own?' For fucks sake, we're all on the same forum, and we're all in the same thread for a reason. If your not in this thread cause you need help or want to help, get the fuck out. I'm serious, Thrice, along with anybody else in this thread who's here for the right reason, does NOT need you fucking bullshit on top of there own problems. So if your not going to help in any way, constructive or other wise, you just need to go troll somewhere else. On the lighter side. Thrice: I've struggled with my own sexuality through my teenage hood, and I can't easily say it was because of the times I was sexually abused. I don't know why, I thought I was bi for sometime. But I know that I'm not now. Whatever reason your friend has, it isn't easy to say it was just a single event that caused him to want dick. If he knows now that he's straight or completely gay, or still bi, their isn't one single contributing factor to make him the way he is. One can argue it is because he's human that he's straight, just as well as one could argue he's gay because he has a chemical imbalance. Okay. As for myself. I'm not struggling right now, but life isn't too great, either. I don't have a car, so I haven't seen my girl in forever. I'm finishing up high school, which is good. But that also means I need to find a place to stay, a car, and a job. Along with struggling with my own mental problems for some time, I've been trying to sort out other shit in my life that needs to get sorted out. With all this, it's fair to say I'm stressed. I've dealt with much, much more, but since when is stress something easy to deal with? Stress = depression in my head. The more stress, the far more depressed I get. Fuckin' chemicals ain't changing that, and neither is therapy.
