I didn't feel there was anyone I could talk to about my sexuality which was causing me some confusion. I thought everyone was going to judge me or laugh at me. I'd been getting involved with people who weren't a good influence on me! I began drinking and experimenting with drugs. I didn't believe anyone could help, but I thought I'd give counselling a go (my friend had recommended Next Generation). Counselling was great, once I'd calmed down and got over all my preconceptions.
I managed to talk about things for the first time with the counsellor and I felt better to open up. Eventually I spoke to my parents about what was going on. Thankfully my family have been very supportive and my life has improved so much for the better.
