i've recieved a handful of emails throughout my time running lesbifriends. after sifting through spam, porn (which i will defend as 'not always spam'), and a few mismarked emails i did come several letters intended for me.
the common theme that has run throughout the messages has been a basic one- help me. whether it's 'help me find more gays to hang out with' or 'where can i go this weekend' or even 'how am i to approach other women'. (admittedly, you are on your own with the last one...my approaches rarely work for me- let alone other people. i just thank my lucky stars that my dreamboat of a girlfriend somehow fell for the ball of awkward that is ashley.)
one e-mailer struck a cord with me and it prompted this post. in her e-mail she explained that she felt alone as she was newly out and didn't know where to turn. undoubtedly a last resort, reached out to me for comfort.
i am in no way trained to help clincially, mentally, or physically...but if you ever need a little friend, my hand is outstreched- all you have to do is grab ahold! when i was at my lowest and i felt abandoned and shunned by all of those around me; i remember vowing then and there to one day become that one person to someone else. the one person who reconnects you to society, who acts as a soundboard, who you can unload on without fear of judgment or ridicule.
feel free to email your comments, concerns, worries, or questions over my way.
take care friends!
