Hi! I’m ace, and I don’t really know any other ace people, so sometimes I just feel really alone and disconnected and like something is wrong with me or whatever (intrusive thoughts begone!) but if you’re ace or on the ace spectrum could you just reply to this and let me know y’all are out there? Please?
So, I have made 2 posts on here before under different accounts (i don't remember why i deleted them tbh), and those accounts were called "Comrade Caroline" and "Just Corey" (I do not use Caroline anymore I go by Corey) and I think one was in need a hug and the other was in women supporting women. I made those posts when I was 15, and this May i turned 17. Although I still have issues with depression especially, I have gotten better in some ways. One, I don't smoke cigarettes anymore. Like at all. I haven't in over a year. Also, I don't drink as much as I used to. I drink like maybe every few months, which I know is still bad, but an improvement nonetheless. I'll see alcohol in the fridge and be able to ignore it the majority of the time. I am also going to get a therapist soon. I have a boyfriend who I actually love and feel genuinely happy around. He's gonna be flying out to the US this spring to visit me. My grades have improved, and I actually have enough credits to graduate this December if I wanted to. As for affordability, I have an advisor now from this scholarship program that's gonna help me navigate college applications, accessibility regarding higher education, etc. Might also be getting a job soon. One thing that feels good, but also unusual, is actually being proud of myself. Like, typing this out has made me realize how much I worked my ass off to be where I am now. I still have shit I need to work on, but yeah.
